England World Cup winner Sir Geoff Hurst will pick 10 first goal scorers each week for the 2018/19 Grosvenor Goals campaign. Grosvenor Goals gives users the chance to win £1 million if their 10 chosen players are all first goal scorers in a given game week.
The free-to-play game, which will be running throughout the 2018/19 season, will also offer £10k for anyone who predicts 10 anytime goal scorers from their selections, with a £10 free bet to those who successfully pick three or more first scorers each week.
Sir Geoff will play his part too – if he selects four or more first goal scorers in a game week, all users who play Grosvenor Goals that week will win a £10 free bet. In game week 15 Sir Geoff correctly predicted Callum Wilson, Glenn Murray, and Harry Kane as first goalscorers and was just one away from winning every game week player a free £10 bet. Here are his picks for another week of Premier League action.
Bournemouth v Liverpool (Saturday, 12:30pm – Mohamed Salah)
Bournemouth hit back with a midweek win following a sticky spell and face a confident Liverpool side looking to stay on the tails of Man City at the top of the table. Mo Salah is starting to show glimpses of last season’s form and Sir Geoff Hurst thinks he will open the scoring in the early kick off this weekend.
Arsenal v Huddersfield (Saturday, 15:00pm – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang)
A home win looks nailed on for Arsenal this weekend as they face a Huddersfield side fearing the drop. With Aubameyang leading the race for this year’s golden boot, there is no doubt he will have plenty of chances to increase his goal tally at the weekend.
Burnley v Brighton (Saturday, 15:00pm – Florin Andone)
Don’t expect a classic here considering last season this fixture produced two goalless draws. A win could see Brighton in contention for a European place next season, and with Florin Andone netting his first goal for the Seagulls last week, and he will be looking to inflict further disappointment on Burnley by opening the scoring at Turf Moor.
Cardiff v Southampton (Saturday, 15:00pm – Stuart Armstrong)
Under new management, the Southampton players will be keen to impress Ralph Hasenhuttl in his first match of the season. In a winnable game against Cardiff, Sir Geoff thinks Stuart Armstrong will continue his rich vein of form by getting on the scoresheet again this weekend.
Man Utd v Fulham (Saturday, 15:00pm – Romelu Lukaku)
Whilst the Belgian appears to be struggling to get on the scoresheet, a goal against Southampton last weekend could be have been the confidence boost Lukaku needed to get firing again. A win here for either side is essential and considering both teams are struggling defensively, this game could see plenty of goals.
West Ham v Crystal Palace (Saturday, 15:00pm – Felipe Anderson)
Despite paying a hefty £36million for the Brazilian, Felipe Anderson is starting to show just why West Ham spent broke their club record transfer fee on him. After settling into football in England, four goals in five matches indicates that he can be clinical in front of goal and Sir Geoff believes the 25-year-old will open the scoring for West Ham in a fixture they have not lost since 2015.
Chelsea v Man City (Saturday, 17:30pm – Leroy Sane)
In a mouth-watering match between two of the best teams in England, Man City could end Chelsea’s title hopes with a win at Stamford Bridge. Having opened the scoring in midweek, Sané looks full of confidence and the German won’t need many chances to hit the back of the net.
Leicester v Tottenham (Saturday, 19:45pm – Harry Kane)
Considering Tottenham possess the best away form in the league this season, winning seven out of nine games, they must go into this game confident. With Kane looking back to his best and scoring nine goals in the league so far this season, he is expected to break the deadlock against the club he once played for on loan.
Newcastle v Wolves (Sunday, 16:00pm – Salomón Rondon)
Wolves got a massive result midweek beating Chelsea, while Newcastle earned themselves a well-earned draw away at Everton. In front of the home crowd, the Magpies go into this game favourites with Rondon looking to bully the susceptible Wolves defence and get on the scoresheet.
Everton v Watford (Monday, 20:00pm – Richarlison)
This is set up to be an interesting clash with both Marco Silva and Richarlison facing their previous club. The Brazilian looks to be a superb acquisition for the Toffees this year having scored seven goals this season, already one more than he did for Watford throughout the whole of the last campaign.
