SWANSEA v SUNDERLAND: JERMAIN DEFOE
David Moyes marched his team to their third win in four matches by defeating the reigning Champions last weekend. Bob Bradley, meanwhile, finds himself favourite in the sack race and has conceded nine goals in his last two matches. Defoe has eight goals already this season including four in his last five, so should be able to find the net against a dismal Swansea side.
HULL v CRYSTAL PALACE: CHRISTIAN BENTEKE
Palace finally ended their six-game losing streak last week with a 3-0 win over Southampton, and after watching Hull on Monday night and finding more entertainment in washing my hair, they should at least be able to score a goal on Saturday. Christian Benteke seems to have picked some form up, scoring twice last week and once in the previous game against Swansea.
BURNLEY v BOURNEMOUTH: NATHAN AKE
After that unbelievable comeback last week, it would be rude not to pick a Cherry here, and why not go for the lad who got the winner? 21-year-old Ake won a lot of fans last week, and the multi-talented Chelsea loanee has scored two goals in seven. Plus, it’s always fun to pick a bit of a wildcard.
ARSENAL v STOKE: ALEXIS SANCHEZ
How could you not pick this man? He was unbelievable against West Ham, bagging a hat-trick and once again affirming himself as one of the best players in the Premier League. He’s scored five goals in his last two league games and is on fire. He also has two great dogs. The easiest pick of the lot!
LEICESTER v MANCHESTER CITY: KELECHI IHEANACHO
With Sergio Aguero out for four games after going in hard on David Luiz, Iheanacho has some pretty huge boots to fill. Scoring against Celtic midweek made it 19 goals in 18 starts for the youngster. Kevin De Bruyne would also be a worthy shout, but I just can’t bring myself to pick him after that miss last week!
SOUTHAMPTON v MIDDLESBROUGH: CHARLIE AUSTIN
Alvaro Negredo let two lads down for £125k each last week and Middlesbrough looked far from convincing, so I’m going with a Saints lad here. The obvious choice would be Austin, with six league goals already this campaign, which is more than Robert Firmino, Etienne Capoue and Philippe Coutinho.
MANCHESTER UNITED v TOTTENHAM: HARRY KANE
It hurts a little bit to type this, but after seeing him against Swansea last week and seeing United concede that woeful penalty, Kane is a safe bet. He takes the spot-kicks (very well) and Mourinho’s backline is just not trustworthy at the moment. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has scored six goals in five games in all competitions and is also on fire, and would also be a very worthy selection.
LIVERPOOL v WEST HAM: DIVOCK ORIGI
With Philippe Coutinho expected to miss at least five more games, Origi has stepped up to the plate. He bagged a goal in the EFL Cup game against Leeds, alongside one last week in the Bournemouth horror show and one in the Sunderland game at the end of November. He’s a safe enough bet against a West Ham side who are conceding goals for fun, including five against Arsenal last week.
