16th Mar 2019 | Premier League
First Goalscorer Double
Liverpool have a clear main man for goals right now and it isn't Mo Salah. Chelsea's best player goes on goal rushes and the one last week against Wolves could start another run.
Sunday should be a chance for Liverpool and Chelsea to strengthen their Premier League ambitions while the others focus elsewhere and I’m backing Sadio Mane and Eden Hazard to both score first in their respective matches at best odds of 29.25/1 with Bet365.
Mane is on stupendous goalscoring form with 10 goals in 10 matches and he’s now leading the Reds’ title and Champions League bids when it comes to goals. Salah remains the shorter price but it’s the Senegalese who is taking up the best positions and grabbing his chances.
Hazard has been less explosive but he equalised in injury time against Wolves last weekend and he’s a player who tends to find the net in bursts. Back in August and September that was virtually every week before another purple patch around Christmas. The Belgian star then had a sequence of 3 goals in 3 outings around a month ago and this could be the start of something similar.
I can’t see Fulham or Everton having enough to deny their visitors at any rate.
