This week's first goalscorer predictions
Roberto Pereyra (Watford) vs Cardiff
Roberto Pereyra was one of the early stars of the season as Watford flew out of the blocks in August and he remains their top scorer with five Premier League goals. He has opened the scoring in three Watford matches already and continues to threaten despite failing to find the net since late October.
It was his shot which came back off the post and went in off Seamus Coleman for the equaliser at Everton on Monday night and he threatened on several other occasions, so we're hoping his luck is about to change and backing Pereyra in the first goalscorer odds at 11/2.
Diogo Jota (Wolves) vs Bournemouth
Diogo Jota has taken his time to find his feet in the Premier League but has come good in the last two matches to ease the burden on striker Raul Jimenez.
The Portuguese midfielder, who scored 18 goals in all competitions last season as Wolves stormed to the Championship title, broke his Premier League duck with the winner in the 2-1 victory against Chelsea. He then opened the scoring at Newcastle last weekend before his shot was superbly saved and resulted in Matt Doherty's last-gasp winner.
That run can continue with the first goal against a Bournemouth defence that has failed to keep a clean sheet in their last six matches, during which time they have conceded 14 goals.
This week's anytime goalscorer predictions
James Maddison (Leicester) vs Crystal Palace
Jamie Vardy seemed a certainty to be Leicester's top scorer at the start of the season but he is level with James Maddison on five goals apiece after the midfielder's impressive start to life in the Premier League.
While Vardy has been frustrated by injuries, Maddison has helped to plug the gap and looks a threat both in open play and at set-pieces so take 11/4 in the anytime goalscorer odds for the 22-year-old to make it three goals in four games.
Terence Kongolo (Huddersfield) vs Newcastle
We've tipped a Huddersfield defender to get on the scoresheet on several occasions this season in our goalscorer tips and have been unfortunate to pick the wrong one more than once. While their strikers remain without a goal, Huddersfield's back three of Christopher Schindler, Terence Kongolo and Zanka have all found the net.
With Phil Billing back from suspension, the Terriers will pose an aerial threat from his long throws so any of the defensive trio look decent value but at the biggest anytime scorer odds of 12/1, we'll take Kongolo to add to the goal he headed in at Bournemouth last week.
