Five Premier League Goalscorer Bets to Watch This Weekend

Riyad Mahrez Manchester City

Raul Jimenez v Arsenal

The battle for Europe sees another massive fixture come to the fore as fifth-placed Wolves take on Arsenal, who are languishing in eighth and six points behind their opposition. The Gunners are traditionally the favourites for such a clash, but since returning to the Premier League, Wolves are undefeated against the north London side – twice earning a 1-1 draw at the Emirates either side of a 3-1 win at Molineux.

Arsenal arrive in somewhat decent form after advancing to the FA Cup semi-final on Sunday and beating Norwich City 4-0 but their defence is suspect and is almost expected to concede against a team of Wolves’ quality. If Wolves do hit the net, expect Raul Jiminez at 10/3 to be their man, first or last.

The Mexican marksman has 15 goals in 32 Premier League appearances this season – and he has hit the net against the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal during his time at the club. Expect him to add to his tally on Saturday.

RAUL JIMENEZ TO SCORE A HEADER BOOSTED @ 7/1

Riyad Mahrez v Southampton

Even though the Saints possess perhaps the most in-form forward in the Premier League in Danny Ings - who is priced at 6/1 anytime - Southampton are likely to struggle against Manchester City.

City, who beat Newcastle 2-0 after losing the title to Liverpool, but came back with a vengeance when they demolished the champions 4-0, and in actual fact, it could have been plenty more.

Pep Guardiola's attacking options don't end and with Sergio Aguero out and Leroy Sane off to Bayern Munich, attention will turn to the likes of Riyad Mahrez - the Algerian is 9/2 to score anytime.

Mahrez bagged a brace against Burnley and has looked dangerous recently when he came very close to adding City's fifth against Liverpool, but saw it chalked off from a brutal VAR call.

Sadio Mane v Aston Villa

Tipped by his fellow African winger Mahrez to win the 2019-20 PFA Player of the Year award, Liverpool’s Sadio Mane has scored 15 goals in 28 appearances in the league this season.

However, their clash with Aston Villa on the weekend is the club’s first at Anfield since historically winning the title, and Mane is priced at 10/3 to score first or last.

The Senegal international bagged the fastest hat-trick in Premier League history against Villa back in his Southampton days and scored a memorable 94th-minute winner against them earlier in the season at Villa Park.

Christian Pulisic v Watford

When Christian Pulisic joined Chelsea in the summer of 2019 for £57.6m, the American came under intense pressure immediately as he was looked at as the replacement for Real Madrid-bound Eden Hazard.

Pulisic had a quiet debut campaign at Stamford Bridge, showing flashes of his immense talent throughout the season, but the 21-year old came back with a bang since the restart.

The ex-Borussia Dortmund man has netted twice post-hiatus and looked threatening every time, and even won the penalty and free kick that led to Chelsea's goals in midweek.

As Lampard’s side chase down a UEFA Champions League spot, look to Pulisic at 4/1 to be the first or last goalscorer, whilst he is also boosted to 12/1 to score a brace

Allan Saint-Maximin v West Ham United


Both Newcastle United and West Ham United have had disappointing seasons by their own heading into the restart of their respective campaigns, but charismatic attacking midfielder Allan Saint-Maximin has been a bright spark for the Magpies.

The Frenchman found the net against Sheffield United in a 3-0 win and bagged a hat-trick of assists against Bournemouth.

Saint-Maximin recently claimed that he wants to reward the faith that manager Steve Bruce has placed in him, and with the Newcastle attack flowing through the diminutive playmaker at every opportunity, Saint-Maximin's price of 14/5 to score anytime is worth a go.

As for West Ham, Jarrod Bowen has looked extremely impressive with two assists against Chelsea and now he and Saint-Maximin are boosted to 20/1 to both score in 90 minutes.

Miguel Almiron is also in stellar form in Newcastle colours once more after he bagged in midweek - the Paraguayan is boosted to 7/1 to score first.
