Crystal Palace v Stoke: Wilfred Zaha
Crystal Palace may be bottom of the table, but Roy Hodgson seems to be finally getting a bit of a peck out of the Eagles – even if they are still in a bit of relegation flap.
Stoke are in right danger of getting involved in that scrap themselves and I reckon Wilfried Zaha will drag them into it by netting the opener on Saturday to get Selhurst Park bouncing.
Tottenham v West Brom: Harry Kane
Harry Kane – enough said!
Only kidding, the Spurs frontman is the gift that keeps on giving and with Christmas right around the corner you’d expect him to be the man to unwrap manager-less West Brom this weekend.
Liverpool v Chelsea: Roberto Firmino
Despite letting Liverpool’s defence have it in my column this week, their attack is firing on all cylinders at present.
The Reds have netted 16 times in their last five outings and I’m going with Roberto Firmino to repeat his trick from Seville by scoring first. After all he doesn’t even need to look at the goals to score these days.
Southampton v Everton: Manolo Gabbiadini
This a tough one to pick if I’m honest. The Saints have been sinners in front of goal this season, with just nine scored in the league all season and The Toffees’ form all campaign has been sticker than their nickname.
I’m going to go with Manolo Gabbiadini to rediscover his scoring touch and light up this scramble for points on the South Coast with some Italian flair.
Burnley v Arsenal: Alexis Sanchez
There’s no doubt that The Clarets are in vintage form under Sean Dyche this season, but they always seem to be uncorked by Arsenal.
Arsene Wenger’s men have won their last six games against Burnley in the league and with Alexis Sanchez back on his game thanks to his goal in last week’s North London Derby, I’m going with the Chilean as my selection in this one.
Huddersfield v Man City: Sergio Aguero
As much as I’d like Huddersfield Town to win (for obvious reason), I can’t look past Sergio Aguero in this one.
For me, he’s City’s greatest ever player and if he starts at the John Smith’s Stadium then it’s impossible not to pick the little Argentine.
