EPL Top Goalscorers Watch Week 21

EPL Top Goalscorers Watch Week 21

Nobody Can Stop Harry Kane

Harry Kane bagged himself a hat trick in Spurs’ five-two demolition of Southampton at Wembley Stadium on Boxing Day and now has 18 Premier League goals this season. Not only did this put Kane in the lead to be the division’s top scorer, it also broke Alan Shearer’s long-standing record for goals scored in a calendar year.

Kane has managed to score an incredible 39 goals in the Premier League during 2017 and a staggering 56 in all competitions including England international games. That last statistic means Kane is the top scorer in Europe for club and country, even surpassing the totals by legends Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

The England frontman should find himself on the scoresheet in Spurs’ next game because they travel to Swansea City who look destined to be relegated. I’d be willing to back Kane to score first and at anytime at almost any odds Bovada can offer because nobody can stop Kane in the form he is in, especially not Swansea City.

Can Rooney Score Against the Cherries?

AFC Bournemouth are a team who are struggling to find any kind of form and currently occupy one of the three relegation places. The Cherries have all sorts of problems at the back and have conceded 31 goals in 20 games while only scoring 18 times.

Bournemouth host Everton in their next game and the Toffees look resurgent under Sam Allardyce. The veteran manager has shored up the Everton defence, which in turn has allowed them to play a more attacking style. With this in mind, it is worth looking at Wayne Rooney to score for Everton against Bournemouth.

Rooney already has 10 goals to his name in the Premier League and is the joint-fifth top scorer. Rooney’s 10 goals have come from only 24 shots which is the fewest of anyone who has scored at least six goals; this is partly down to Rooney playing a deeper lying role.

Keep your eye on Bovada for odds on Rooney scoring because they are yet to update their odds because Rooney is slightly doubtful to make the trip to Bournemouth due to an illness. If he does travel, get your money on him scoring at anytime rather than being the first goal scorer.

Hazard Relishing Stoke City Fixture

One player who has the ability to turn a game on its head is Chelsea’s Eden Hazard. The Belgian has supreme skills and should really have scored more than five league goals this season; Hazard has 11 goals in 29 appearances across all competitions.

Hazard’s Chelsea are at home to Stoke City during this round of matches and Hazard must be licking his lips in anticipation of being able to play against the Premier League’s worst defense. Stoke have conceded 41 goals in 20 games and are only three points above the relegation zone.

Chelsea’s flying Belgian has only ever scored once against Stoke and that came in the 2-1 home win on April 2015. He also hasn’t scored since bagging a brace in the 3-1 win over Newcastle United on December 2, 2017 but do not let that put you off. Both the +325 on Hazard scoring first and the -120 on Hazard scoring during the 90-minutes look like shrewd bets to make. Sorry Stoke fans, you’re in for another hammering.

Lukaku To Add to Southampton’s Misery

Southampton fans were left reeling this week after the club announced their star defender Virgil van Dyke will be leaving the club and heading to Liverpool for a world record £75 million. The central defender’s departure spells good news for Manchester United who invite them to their Old Trafford home.

One man who must be eager to play against a weakened back line is Romelu Lukaku. The massive Belgian striker is on 10 goals for the season and is slowly returning to his early season form.

Lukaku has drawn a blank for the past three games, failing to score in the cup against Bristol City and in the Premier League 2-2 draws with Leicester City and Burnley, so is due to bang one in sooner rather than later.

Bovada agree and make Lukaku the +260 favorite to score first and -150 to put the ball in the Southampton goal before the referee blows the final whistle.
