Premier League goalscorer parlay for Matchweek 32
As any gameshow fanatic will know, points mean prizes. And in the Premier League goals win games. Yes, there is something intriguingly beautiful about a tense, tactical affair – but when it comes to the crunch, we’re all here for goals.
Whether they’re 25-yard screamers, thrilling team-moves, individual bits of genius or defensive calamities, it doesn’t matter. The ball hitting the back of the net is all we want to see, and hopefully these three in-form players can find the target this weekend.
A $10 parlay on these three hot-shots returns $138, and if you are feeling particularly lucky a $10 parlay on them all to score first returns $935.
Newcastle vs. West Ham: Jesse Lingard First Goalscorer (+350) or Anytime (+130)
Sat, April 17 2021, 11:30 AM
Jesse Lingard has a new lease of life since leaving Manchester United for West Ham. Down in London the shackles are off, and we are getting to see a whole new player. Lingard has been the star man in a West Ham side that is full of confidence and scoring at will.
Lingard has eight goals in nine games since becoming a Hammer, and has found the net in each of his last four games – opening the scoring in the match every time.
Newcastle have played 17 games in 2021 and kept just one clean sheet. That came in a 0-0 draw with West Brom, but it’s going to be a very different proposition when David Moyes’ men come to town.
Lingard has his eyes on a place in the England team for the European Championship in the summer, so don’t expect his hot streak to end anytime soon.
Arsenal vs. Fulham: Alexandre Lacazette First Goalscorer (+260) or Anytime (+105)
Alexandre Lacazette bagged his 50th Premier League goal for the Gunners in the final few minutes of their 3-0 win against Sheffield United last week, and he’s a player who bettors should take advantage of when he hits a goalscoring run of form.
The French forward scored three goals in Arsenal’s opening three league games, but then went 10 games without finding the net. He broke that spell with a run of four goals in three games before scoring just two in his next 10. Now he’s back in from, and on a run of six goals in six games including two against Slavia Prague on Thursday.
That run is set to continue as Arsenal face a Fulham side that have conceded nine goals in their last four games. In their last away game, they shipped three goals in just 12 minutes as Aston Villa ran out 3-1 winners.
It took Lacazette just eight minutes to find the net when these two teams met earlier this season at Craven Cottage. They might be a little harder to break down this time around, but there’s a great chance that Arsenal’s leading scorer adds another to his tally.
Manchester United vs. Burnley: Mason Greenwood First Goalscorer (+450) or Anytime (+180)
Marcus Rashford has a troubling ankle injury, and the 34-year-old Edison Cavani has played almost four-and-a-half hours of football over the last 10 days thanks to the Europa League and Premier League fixture congestion. The chances that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may have to rest one, if not both, of those players opens the door for Mason Greenwood to make an impact at home against Burnley.
Another player in a rich vein of form, Greenwood has three goals in his last five games for United and can step up for the Red Devils – particularly as Anthony Martial might be on the shelf for the rest of the season after spraining his knee on international duty.
Greenwood got the winner against Brighton two weeks ago and came off the bench to put the cherry on the comeback cake in a 3-1 win over Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham last week, so confidence is high for the 19-year-old.
Burnley have just one clean sheet in their last eight league games, and have conceded eight goals in their last three league away games. It took Tottenham less than an hour to put four past the Clarets, and Southampton put three past them with more than a quarter of the game remaining.
Leicester don’t play this weekend due to the FA Cup, so a win will put even more distance between United and the chasing pack in the battle behind Man City.
