5 Premier League Goalscorer Tips to Watch This Weekend - Gameweek 2

Man United vs Crystal Palace: Rashford to outscore the opposition

Manchester United belatedly get their Premier League campaign underway at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday having been granted an additional week of pre-season preparation following their Europa League involvements in August.

Palace won their opening fixture against Southampton last week but despite winning at Old Trafford last season, the stats look bleak for the Eagles. They’ve scored just two goals in their previous seven visits to Old Trafford (both in their 2-1 win last season) and they lost against six of last year’s top nine away from home, failing to score in all of those defeats, while they were the league’s second-lowest scorers with just 31 goals in 38 games. Expect a defensive gameplan from Roy Hodgson’s men for this one.

United, on the other hand, were unbeaten in their final 14 league games (won nine, drew five), keeping clean sheets in eight of those nine wins. They averaged 2.4 goals per game after the resumption of football post-lockdown, only Man City scored more.

Marcus Rashford scored in United’s 2-0 win over Palace in July, one of 17 he got in the Premier League, and with Palace unlikely to trouble the hosts defensively, at 14/5, he looks good odds to outscore the opposition - click here to claim this bet.

Arsenal vs West Ham: Aubameyang to score a brace

Arsenal face a second consecutive London derby in the opening weeks of the new Premier League season as they host West Ham United at the Emirates on Saturday with Mikel Arteta’s men looking to make it two wins from two.

With the news confirmed this week that top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has committed his future to the club, the Gabonese frontman and Arsenal can now solely concentrate on improving on last season’s eigth place finish and they got off to a flying start winning 3-0 at Fulham last weekend.

Aubameyang scored in that victory and he also notched in a 3-1 win against their next opponents this weekend, West Ham, last season. The Hammers looked fragile in defence against Newcastle, who were last season’s fourth-lowest Premier League scorers, losing 2-0 and with lots of trouble brewing behind the scenes at the club and very little money spent in the transfer market, West Ham continue their poor form here.

Aubameyang has scored a brace in four of his last 11 competitive games, including both the FA Cup Semi-Final and Final, get him to do so again here, boosted from 3/1 to 4/1 - click here to claim this bet.

Chelsea vs Liverpool: Salah to score and Liverpool to win

Two sides with title ambitions meet at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, as big-spending Chelsea host champions Liverpool, with both sides aiming to make it a 100% start from their opening two fixtures.

Liverpool are currently slight favourites to win at 11/10 and after Mohamed Salah’s hat-trick last week, look no further than the Egyptian to add to that tally this weekend. Salah's Premier League record speaks for itself; 76 goals in 109 appearances for Liverpool has seen him consistently towards the top end of the scoring since 2017. Also, with James Milner lower down the pecking order at Liverpool now, Salah has taken over regular penalty duty and he has a 100% record too, scoring nine from nine.

Liverpool won at Stamford Bridge last season as they went on to win the title and have also won their last three league fixtures against Frank Lampard’s side, get Salah to score and Liverpool to win at 2/1 with Sky Bet - click here to claim.

Southampton vs Tottenham: Ings and Kane to score

St. Mary’s hosts a fixture between two early strugglers in the Premier League as Southampton host Tottenham after both sides lost their opening matches by one goal to nil. Southampton also crashed out the EFL Cup on Wednesday after a full-strength side lost 2-0 at home to Brentford.

However, both sides do boast two of the league’s most clinical forwards, Danny Ings and Harry Kane. The two got 40 league goals between them last season and both represented England in the Nations League earlier this month against Iceland.

Ings has enjoyed playing against Spurs in recent times, scoring three goals against them last season while Kane’s record against the Saints is even more impressive, scoring in six of his last seven appearances against the south coast outfit. As well as having a reliable finisher playing on both sides, 10 of the previous 11 encounters between the sides have seen both teams score, therefore, backing Ings and Kane both to score looks great value at a boosted price of 11/2.

Aston Villa vs Sheffield United: Watkins to score first

After being one of the four sides not in action on the official curtain-raising opening weekend, Aston Villa get their 2020/21 Premier League campaign underway against Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United at Villa Park on Monday evening. The visitors got off to a disappointing start at Bramall Lane, falling to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Wolves with both goals coming within six minutes.

This fixture last season was the very first to played post-lockdown and was infamous for a clear ‘ghost goal’ not awarded by the goal-line technology system in favour of United, after Orjan Nyland evidently fumbled the ball over his own goalline.

The game ended 0-0 and followed much of the same patterns that most matches involving these sides had last season, low-scoring, gritty affairs. Expect another one here as one goal may be all that’s required to secure three points at Villa Park.

New Villa signing,Ollie Watkins, has hit the ground running, scoring the only goal in a friendly against Manchester United last weekend and also grabbing the equaliser in their 3-1 win at Burton on Tuesday in the EFL Cup. The £33m man is the favourite to get on the scoresheet again, especially following on from his excellent exploits with Brentford last term, where he netted 26 league goals.

In what may well be a low-scoring affair, get Watkins to score first at 4/1 right here!
