Harry Kane is considered highly likely to find the net against Bournemouth on Saturday despite the striker having drawn blanks at home to Chelsea, Swansea and Burnley.

Gabriel Jesus is second on the list when he plays Stoke City, with Dele Alli and Alvaro Morata tied in third, although the Chelsea forward looks unlikely to be fit for Saturday’s trip to Crystal Palace.

There are three Arsenal players trading at odds-on to score at Watford, while Michy Batshuayi’s price will shorten if Morata is confirmed absent for the London derby against the Eagles.

When it comes to the big clash between Liverpool and Manchester United, Romelu Lukaku is the 21/20 favourite on the Anytime Scorer market, while bookmaker William Hill consider Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino the most likely scorers for the home team at odds of 7/4.
