Opta Stats: Liverpool striker to prove England readiness

With an England gathering on the horizon, these Opta trends point to goals for Saido Berahino, Harry Kane and Daniel Sturridge…

Leicester v Hull (Saturday, 15:00)

Dame N’Doye has scored in all three of his Premier League starts for Hull

A 30-year-old who has spent his career bouncing between Qatar, Portugal, Greece, Denmark and Russia didn’t seem an obvious fit for the vacancy of Hull saviour, but Senegalese international N’Doye has been an instant hit. Aston Villa, QPR and Sunderland have already suffered at his feet and, with Leicester conceding twice in each of their last four fixtures, another key intervention in a six-pointer awaits.

Recommended Bet: Back N’Doye to score @ 3.7511/4

West Brom v Stoke (Saturday, 15:00)

Saido Berahino has scored in three of his last four Premier League appearances

Only five players have out-fired Berahino in what is just the 21-year-old’s second Premier League season and the arrival of Tony Pulis has inspired some of his sharpest form. The youngster has ten goals in 2015 and four in his past six outings, with his importance to the Baggies emphasised by none of his teammates picking up the shortfall on either occasion in that sequence that he was shut out.

Recommended Bet: Back Berahino to score @ 3.259/4

Man United v Tottenham (Sunday, 16:00, Sky Sports 1)

Harry Kane has scored in his last six Premier League away games

Kane’s remarkable first campaign as a Tottenham regular has the potential to get even better. He is one goal off the top of the charts and notching on a seventh straight away day will make him just the second player in Premier League history to do so after Robin van Persie. Kane netted twice on two of his previous three league road trips too, and Spurs struck five times across their most recent two Old Trafford visits.

Recommended Bet: Back Kane to score @ 3.02/1

Swansea v Liverpool (Monday, 20:00, Sky Sports 1)

Daniel Sturridge has scored four goals in three Premier League appearances for Liverpool against the Swans

Fears that Liverpool’s outstanding forward had returned from injury less effective than he was before were calmed when he bagged against Burnley in his latest Premier League showing, and his fourth goal post-comeback is likely to follow at the Liberty Stadium. The England starter took four minutes to break the deadlock the previous time that he travelled to Swansea’s stadium last term.

Recommended Bet: Back Sturridge to score @ 2.767/4
