5 Premier League Goalscorer Tips to Watch on Opening Weekend

Arsenal v Fulham: Aubameyang to outscore the opposition

Newly-promoted Fulham welcome Arsenal to Craven Cottage in the early kick off on Saturday to get the 2020/21 season off and running.

Scott Parker’s side have a difficult task in the season ahead, as they attempt to avoid relegation and an immediate return to the Championship, just like two seasons ago. Meanwhile, there is some optimism surrounding Arsenal as Mikel Arteta leads the Gunners into a new season for the first time as manager, with the north London club hoping to make a challenge for those all-important Champions League spots.

There were plenty of positive signs when the former Arsenal midfielder took the reins towards the end of last season, beating Liverpool at the Emirates and again in the Community Shield, before edging Manchester City and Chelsea to win the FA Cup.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was on the scoresheet in both finals and scored twice against City, as the Gabon international continues to be Arsenal's main man. Aubameyang is now priced at 8/11 to score anytime, whilst he is also boosted to 16/1 to score a hat-trick.

However, our tip for this one is for the Arsenal captain to outscore Fulham on Saturday with a price of 2/1 - click the link to claim this bet and have it straight in your bet slip.

Palace v Southampton: Ings to score and win

Danny Ings surprised many last campaign by netting 22 goals and finishing just one goal behind compatriot, Jamie Vardy.

The Southampton man continued his hot form as last season came to a close, scoring in each of his last three league games to finish 2019/20 on the same goals as Aubameyang. Ings will once again be the main man for the Saints as Ralph Hasenhuttl's men continue to improve under his leadership.

As for Crystal Palace, the Eagles struggled tremendously after the resumption of football, going eight games without a win in their last eight, losing seven. Roy Hodgson's side have been tipped by many for relegation this campaign as their form in 2020 was so poor, however, with Wilfred Zaha still on the books, there is always a chance.

Southampton were unbeaten against Palace last season, with Ings scoring in the 1-1 draw when the teams met December. Now, the England man is priced at 15/8 to score against a struggling Palace side and win - click here to claim this one.

West Brom v Leicester: Vardy to bag a brace

The 2019/20 Golden Boot winner Jamie Vardy returns to action as Leicester make the trip to the West Midlands to begin their new campaign against the newly-promoted West Bromwich Albion.

The Foxes will be determined to get back on the right track, following a campaign that started fantastically well before petering out when Leicester fell out of a top four in the final stages.

The Baggies, on the other hand, come into the season being tipped to struggle in a relegation fight once more, although, the club do boast experienced Premier League names in the likes of Jake Livermore and Charlie Austin.

Vardy is also not shy of a goal against West Brom, scoring four times against them, including that fabulous volley which won various awards from numerous outlets, including Match of the Day's Goal of the Season.

Now, with the Englishman's form still red hot, Vardy is boosted to 11/2 to score a brace on Sunday - click here to claim this bet.

Spurs v Everton: Kane to score and win

Sunday's Premier League action witnesses Tottenham Hotspur entertain Everton at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium in arguably the most enticing fixture of the opening weekend.

The two heavyweight managers with immense pedigree in Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti took over Spurs and Everton, respectively, midway through last season. Now, the two Premier League-winning managers lead their teams into the new season for the first time and look to challenge the top six for a place in Europe.

Spurs finished six places above Everton last season, sneaking into a Europa League spot towards the end of the campaign. They’ll look to improve upon that next season and have captain Harry Kane back leading the line, now the Englishman is injury-free once more. Indeed, Kane has spent much of the past two seasons sidelined, but still registered 18 league goals in 29 games, including eight from nine in the final few fixtures.

Kane infamously has struggled to bag in the early stages of a new season, but with his form from last season, a short break shouldn't hinder the England captain this time around.

Plus with an incredible nine goals from 10 against Everton, having him to score and win at 8/5 is our tip for this one - click here to claim this bet and have it in your bet slip.
