Southampton v Aston Villa (Saturday, 12:45, BT Sport 1)
Ten of Graziano Pelle’s 11 Premier League goals this season have arrived at St. Mary’s
Thanks largely to a fast start on the south coast, Pelle’s purchase can still be deemed a positive by Saints fans, even though his shooting boots have cooled considerably since the turn of the year. The warm embrace of the St Mary’s crowd has always brought out the best of him though and his last three goals were all scored in his most recent two appearances at that stadium.
Recommended Bet: Back Pelle to score @ [2.74]
West Ham v Everton (Saturday, 15:00)
Romelu Lukaku has scored in each of his five appearances for Everton against West Ham
Although the former Chelsea forward has struggled to find the back of the net of late, beating just one of the past five goalkeepers that he has faced, the sight of London’s claret-and-blue club should coax Lukaku out of his shell. Three of the Belgian’s five strikes against the Hammers have come this season, with an FA Cup tie that required a replay helping him boost his seriously impressive tally.
Recommended Bet: Back Lukaku to score @ [2.92]
Manchester United v Arsenal (Sunday, 16:00, Sky Sports 1)
Wayne Rooney has scored six in his last seven games against Arsenal at Old Trafford
Few can deny that being handed the captain’s armband at both domestic and national level has inspired the Merseyside native in front of goal this season. Even a stint playing in a deeper midfield role hasn’t drastically affected Rooney’s stats this term, which stand at 21 strikes in 44 appearances for club and country heading into one of his favourite matches. The 11 top-flight goals that he has fired past the Gunners in his career are only bettered by his tallies against Aston Villa and Newcastle.
Recommended Bet: Back Rooney to score @ [2.9]
West Brom v Chelsea (Monday, 20:00, Sky Sports 1)
Didier Drogba has scored eight goals in seven Premier League starts against the Baggies
Steven Gerrard may have the farewell publicity locked up at the moment, but there won’t be a better chance for Jose Mourinho to hand the veteran Ivorian a goalscoring send off, if indeed this to be Drogba’s second departure from west London. The 37-year-old was only afforded six minutes against the Baggies earlier in the season, but should have far longer to leave an impression this time around with Diego Costa still a fitness doubt.
Recommended Bet: Back Drogba to score @ [2.92]
