The Premier League returns this weekend and there is an intriguing slate of games to look forward to.
We have delved into the goalscorer market and selected a three-fold for you to mull over that pays out at 23/1 with William Hill.
· Mohamed Salah to net two goals or more for Liverpool against Fulham
· Son Heung-Min to score anytime for Tottenham against Southampton
· Raheem Sterling to score anytime for Chelsea against Everton
Mohamed Salah to net two goals or more for Liverpool against Fulham
Fulham have a tough starter to open their Premier League campaign as they will collide with Liverpool at Craven Cottage in the lunchtime kick-off.
Mohamed Salah, who finished joint top of the Premier League’s goalscoring charts last season with 23 strikes to his name doesn’t have a brilliant record against the west London outfit, scoring twice in four matches.
However, the Egyptian could well bamboozle the Fulham defence with his jinking runs, and usually when Liverpool win, he’s on the scoresheet.
Salah could help Liverpool to a handsome victory, and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him help himself to a double.
Son Heung-Min to score anytime for Tottenham against Southampton
At times, Son Heung-Min seemed to carry Tottenham on his shoulders last season as they pipped Arsenal to a coveted Champions League spot.
Invariably, the South Korean had a hand in most games, and he is often the difference maker. He is direct and he’s never afraid to let fly from disstance. His telepathic relationship with Harry Kane has helped them to become a lethal striking combo, and they will hope to hit new heights this term.
Last season, Son netted what he thought was the winner against Southampton before Mohamed Elyounoussi and Che Adams had other ideas. Nevertheless, Son has a fine record against the Saints scoring six times in his past four Premier League outings against them and he could well add to his tally this weekend.
Raheem Sterling to score anytime for Chelsea against Everton
Raheem Sterling will be eager to make an immediate impression for Chelsea when they round off the day’s action against Everton.
The England international will be the focal point of the Blues attack in the wake of Romelu Lukaku’s departure, and he has worked hard to improve his finishing.
Last season, Chelsea suffered a shock 1-0 defeat away to Everton, who somehow managed to keep their heads above water. Although trips to Goodison Park can be laden with danger, Thomas Tuchel will want his side to press hard from the front early on.
Sterling usually pops up in the right place at the right time, and he is likely to get some great service from the likes of Mason Mount and Hakim Ziyech. Sterling could have a debut to remember and with 109 career league goals to his name, it may well be 110 come Saturday evening.
