Likely scorers for next week’s Premier League fixtures
With the international break over, it’s time to get back to the Premier League. And with a number of interesting fixtures coming up, it’s worth thinking about who is likely to score. Goal scorers make a such a huge difference in big games, and they can really alter the season for teams, turning things around completely for those with a slower start. We’ve taken a look at likely scorers for the upcoming games and the players to watch. If you ever ask yourself how to bet on football matches, this is exactly the way to win big money.
Harry Kane (Tottenham vs West Ham)
Harry Kane had a very effective showing over the international break with a hattrick against Montenegro and a goal against Kosovo. Being on that kind of form for England is always a boost, and Kane is rarely one to go many weeks without scoring. Better yet, Kane’s Tottenham Hotspur are playing West Ham, whose defence (and specifically their reserve goalkeeper Roberto) has been in extremely poor form. Look for Kane to make the most of the week. Some other players that might score could include Son, who has been in an excellent run of form, and even Harry Winks, who looked good in a slightly more attacking role for England against Kosovo.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal vs Southampton)
Aubameyang has been on sparkling form for the Gunners to start off the season. The Gabonese striker has been using his blistering pace and his brilliant eye for goal, to be one of the highest scorers so far. Arsenal are playing Southampton – the same Southampton that conceded nine goals last month.
Arsenal are looking to press on with their season and make a push towards the top four, and it has to start with making a statement against a team like Southampton. Of course, there are plenty of other options for Arsenal including Lacazette and Nicholas Pepe. When Arsenal play well offensively, they can do a lot of damage.
Jamie Vardy (Brighton vs Leicester City)
Brighton’s defending has hardly been in the upper echelon this year, and Leicester are a team on form. None more so than veteran striker Vardy who has been notching up goals on a regular basis. Brighton’s back pair of Dunk and Duffy are big bruisers with plenty of talent and skill at matching up with powerful forwards, but the slick and elusive Vardy is the kind of player that gives them nightmares. Expect James Maddison to have a big game against Brighton too, perhaps continuing his goalscoring run.
Gylfi Sigurdsson (Everton vs Norwich)
Everton look like they may have to face a relegation battle this year, and undoubtedly one of their major rivals will be Norwich, currently the bottom club in the Premier League. Fortunately for Everton, however, they have more in the way of talent. And this is likely to be the difference in their game at the weekend. Gylfi Sigurdsson was on form over the international break for Iceland and could continue that form against Norwich.
