Premier League Golden Boot Each-Way Tip
At times left to gather dust on the bench under Arsene Wenger but this was a £50m player for a reason and he finished last season like a man on a mission.
The Golden Boot market was dominated by Salah and Kane in 2017-18 but once you factor in the likelihood of injuries and squad rotation it’s never worth paying too small a price even before the new season begins.
Furthermore with almost all bookies paying out generous each-way terms, it can be more profitable to pick someone who can creep into the top four scorers, with an outside chance of hitting the jackpot.
Enter Alexandre Lacazette at best odds of 25/1 with Bet365. A year ago he was Arsenal’s expensive star signing but for some reason Arsene Wenger decided to turf him onto the bench for long spells.
In the end he did well to claim 14 Premier League goals from the 2212 minutes he was afforded. Everyone who scored more, except Aguero, had a lot more minutes to find them.
Furthermore, the 27-year-old really accelerated towards the end of the campaign netting 8 times in his final 10 outings as Wenger finally gave him his due.
A new man is finally in the Gunners’ hotseat and if Unai Emery realises what an asset he has then his French forward could repay him, and us, in abundance.
*Bet365 will pay out at quarter odds if Lacazette finishes in the top four goalscorers as per each-way terms.
