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 entrants who play Grosvenor Goals that week will win a £10 free bet.
Here are his selections for Game Week Four – how will he get on?
Leicester v Liverpool (Saturday, 12.30pm) – Sadio Mane
Sadio Mane has started the season well, scoring three goals in Liverpool’s first three Premier League matches this season. The Foxes may look at put the Reds under pressure early on, and this could leave space for Mane to counter attack with teammates Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.
Crystal Palace v Southampton (Saturday, 3pm) – Wilfried Zaha
At times, Crystal Palace can look like a one man band through Wilfried Zaha’s brilliance. With two goals in his first three Premier League matches, plus a newly signed contract, the Eagles winger is flying at the moment and is backed by Sir Geoff to strike first against the Saints on Saturday.
Everton v Huddersfield (Saturday, 3pm) – Gylfi Sigurðsson
Gylfi Sigurðsson looks to have found his feet at Goodison after a mixed first season with the Toffees. He’s still to score in the league this season, but a midweek goal against Rotherham in the Carabao Cup saw him open the scoring, and he could unlock the Huddersfield defence this weekend.
Brighton v Fulham (Saturday, 3pm) – Aleksandar Mitrović
Serbian striker Aleksandar Mitrović has three in three for the Whites since returning on loan from Newcastle, and Brighton will be wary of the threat he’ll bring to their defence at the Amex on Saturday.
Chelsea v Bournemouth (Sat, 3pm) – Eden Hazard
Hazard celebrated his first start of the season with a goal from the penalty spot against Newcastle last Sunday, and he looked a goal threat throughout. The Belgian scored against Bournemouth in a 1-0 win in the reverse of this fixture last season, and Sir Geoff fancies him to open the scoring at Stamford Bridge this weekend.
West Ham v Wolves (Saturday, 3pm) – Raul Jimenez
Jimenez was unlucky not to add to his one goal this season after his effort against Man City was ruled offside in the 1-1 draw last weekend. He’s looked a handful in each match, and West Ham continue to leak goals. Unfortunately for Sir Geoff’s former side West Ham, he sees them conceding the first goal in this one.
Man City v Newcastle (Sat, 5.30pm) – Sergio Aguero
Sergio Aguero just loves scoring against Newcastle. The Argentinian has 14 goals in 12 matches against the Magpies for the Citizens, and while there’s plenty more threat from his teammates, Sir Geoff is backing him to strike first at the Etihad this weekend.
Cardiff v Arsenal (Sun, 1.30pm) – Henrikh Mkhitaryan
Mkhitaryan’s fantastic strike at Stamford Bridge in the second match opened his account for the season, and with the Gunners struggling to find goals from upfront, the Armenian could step forward to take ownership against the Bluebirds on Sunday.
Watford v Tottenham (Sun, 4pm) – Lucas Moura
The former PSG man has looked fantastic this season, scoring three in his last two matches including a brace at Old Trafford in a 3-0 win over Man United. He’s a man playing with confidence, and Watford should be wary of his threat at Vicarage Road.
Burnley v Man United (Sun, 4pm) – Romelu Lukaku
Jose Mourinho’s side need a win against Burnley to get back on track following their two league defeats to Brighton and Tottenham. Romelu Lukaku will also be eager to make up for his misses against Spurs on Monday, and Sir Geoff reckons he will do just that.
