Premier League club top scorers tips: Five live marksmen
Five Premier League club top scorers tips
The individual leading marksmen markets for each English top-flight club are fascinating, and we have picked out five Premier League club top scorers tips.
The top tier kicks off this weekend so, with a raft of exciting additions to the division this summer, expect a slew of goals from different players.
As you will see, there’s much more to top-scorer betting with Coral than just the Premier League Golden Boot outright…
Michail Antonio (West Ham)
The biggest concern for West Ham this summer has been the inability to bring in a proven striker to partner one of the most versatile players ever to grace the Premier League.
When fit, Antonio has every attribute to worry defenders, providing pace with power – he is a modern-day Cyril Regis.
There are times when he frustrates himself and lacks confidence, but when he is firing, he is almost unstoppable.
Antonio scored 10 goals in 26 appearances last season and David Moyes will hope he can build on that this term. He is 11/8 to be the Hammers’ top marksman.
Kelechi Iheanacho (Leicester)
Jamie Vardy turns 35 in January and he has understandably started to lose a little pace. He has plenty of guile and will certainly cause plenty of issues for referees and defenders alike but it is strike partner Iheanacho who is backed to pick up any slack.
With Leicester competing in Europe again, rotation will be key for Brendan Rodgers and Vardy will be afforded more rest with Patson Daka and Iheanacho seeing more playing time.
Iheanacho scored 12 goals in 25 Premier League games last term. He has always had talent, but now he has the confidence and the opportunities, and is a standout 5/2 chance to be the Foxes’ top marksman.
Joshua King (Watford)
There is a nice blend of youth and experience up front for the Hornets as they join the top table after a season in the Championship.
With Ismaila Sarr a potential target for Tottenham, Joao Pedro just 19, and Troy Deeney in the autumn of his career, Watford have brought in King (pictured below) – and that is a shrewd move.
The 29-year-old Norway international scored 53 times in a total of 184 appearances during his time with Bournemouth, but was unable to find the net in his 11 appearances with Everton.
This exciting Watford side will create plenty of opportunities and King could be on the end of most of them. He is 4/1 to be the Hornets’ top scorer ahead of their opening match against Aston Villa.
Patrick Bamford (Leeds)
If he can keep up the same pace that saw him score 17 goals in 38 games last season, Bamford should be in Gareth Southgate’s plans for next winter’s World Cup squad.
He will be 28 next month and is in his prime and suits Marco Bielsa’s attack-minded philosophy perfectly.
Bamford has the ability to play off the shoulder of the last defender and time his runs brilliantly.
He is every midfielder’s dream, as he has the ability to hold the ball up as well as ghost in behind or drop deep and link play.
There is a lot to love about Bamford and he is 1/2 to be Leeds’ top scorer.
Kai Havertz (Chelsea)
Havertz showed his ability towards the latter half of last season which went some way to justifying his lofty price tag.
He scored in three of his final four Premier League games and has benefitted from the faith Thomas Tuchel put in him.
He also netted the Champions League winner against Manchester City so his confidence should be sky high.
While Romelu Lukaku has arrived with unfinished business and Timo Werner failing to shine as expected, the German will benefit from an extended run in the side and the rotation which comes with a European and domestic title challenge.
Havertz is 9/2 to be Chelsea’s top scorer in the Premier League this term.
