Last week, the Hotshot Jackpot only went and landed for the third time! With one lucky punter taking home £250,000 thanks to Islam Slimani’s 55th minute goal, despite Leicester losing to West Brom.
Fast forward a week and the international break is finally over, we have Didi Hamann on hand to select his eight anytime goalscorers who can help you on your way to the big money.
SOUTHAMPTON v LIVERPOOL: ROBERTO FIRMINO
This could be a tough game for Liverpool, but the way they are going at the moment it’s impossible not to go with them. They have plenty of goal scorers to choose from, but I’m going with Firmino. He caused a lot of issues for Watford when he played up top last week, and I can see him doing the same against Saints. He is in such fine form at the moment.
STOKE v BOURNEMOUTH: XHERDAN SHAQIRI
Bournemouth have done really well, but that will start to come to an end now. They lost against Sunderland last week and Stoke could get on a bit of a run here. He picked up a knock but if he is back he will be vital for them.
EVERTON v SWANSEA: ROMELU LUKAKU
The result against Chelsea, although it was bad, will probably happen to a few more teams this season. They looked frightening! So I wouldn’t be too downbeat about Everton. I’ve got to go with Romelu Lukaku for this fixture, who should be too much for a struggling Swansea side.
WATFORD v LEICESTER: TROY DEENEY
Other teams have Leicester worked out this season, and a huge amount of pressure always come with being the Champions. Things aren’t going so well for them in the league this season and they will probably stay in the bottom half for a lot of it, the way things are going. Troy Deeney takes penalties and although he hasn’t found the net in the last few, he is the man to go with here.
SUNDERLAND v HULL: VICTOR ANICHEBE
Anichebe really changed the game for Sunderland when he came on against Bournemouth, and helped them to get a win. He bagged the equaliser and won the penalty for Jermain Defoe. He is far from a prolific goalscorer, though he is very strong and talented. Hopefully, if he gets his head together after the Bournemouth game he can bag one here.
TOTTENHAM v WEST HAM: CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN
Whilst I have my doubts about Tottenham, I’m really not keen on West Ham either and think Spurs should win this one. Harry Kane scored the penalty against Arsenal in their last game, but I think Eriksen is the man to go with here. He is a brilliant player, and at some stage he is going to come good.
MIDDLESBROUGH v CHELSEA: EDEN HAZARD
Chelsea seem to have found a formation which allows Hazard do have some freedom to do what he wants. Since they have, he has looked great. He is playing his best football again. As much as Willian and Pedro are talented, Hazard is the key. He can change any game in a split second and it’s impossible to look any further than him here.
WEST BROM v BURNLEY: CHRIS BRUNT
West Brom can grind out a result against Burnley, and with Brunt scoring for Northern Ireland in the international break, I’m going with him. He is someone that can score from set pieces, and he is clearly in goal scoring form. It’s always good to go with someone who not as many people will predict, too! Especially if you’re at the final leg.
