Premier League Goalscorers Betting Special: Back Van Persie to continue prolific form

With seven goals in his last nine league games, our tipster's backing Manchester United's red hot striker to feature prominently on Saturday against Crystal Palace

Goals are unlikely to be in short supply in the Premier League on Saturday, as a number of the division’s leading lights take to the field in an action-packed schedule.

The early kick-off brings together a Chelsea side lacking a prolific front man with an Everton team missing leading scorer Romelu Lukaku, currently on loan from their opponents.

The Blues will be hoping leading scorer Eden Hazard can continue to inspire from midfield, with the mercurial Belgian their best bet at 6/4 (2.50) with William Hill to score a seventh in 10 league games.

Meanwhile, Lacina Traore will attempt to fill Lukaku’s boots at the other end and is available at 11/4 (3.75) to follow up his debut goal by hitting the back of the net at Stamford Bridge.

Sergio Aguero’s absence should give Stevan Jovetic another chance to prove his Manchester City credentials after scoring against Chelsea in the FA Cup, and even odds (2.00) could prove great value on him bagging just a second Premier League goal.

Having struck against Liverpool and Manchester United in big games this season, Stoke’s leading scorer Charlie Adam may prove tempting at 8/1 (9.00) to ensure City concede for the 11th away game in 13 this league season.

Likewise, in-form Adam Johnson is definitely worth backing at 7/1 (8.00) to strike a seventh goal in six games when Sunderland travel to the Emirates, where Yaya Sanogo is available at 10/11 ( 1.91) to open his Arsenal account after lively performances against Liverpool and Bayern Munich.

Fulham fans looking forward to Kostas Mitroglou’s long-awaited debut may want to consider 2/1 (3.00) odds on the record signing hitting the net after two goals for the under-21s last week, while Kevin Nolan’s recent goal-scoring exploits make him worth keeping an eye on at 9/4 (3.25) to score his fifth in four games when West Ham take on Southampton.

One man who almost guarantees goals is Robin van Persie, and the Dutchman is not to be missed at 10/11 (1.91) to score an 11th goal in just 15 league starts when Manchester United visit Crystal Palace, where Thomas Ince is available at 11/4 (3.75) to hit a second in two games for the Eagles against his dad’s former club.
