Opta Stats: Tottenham's favourite son to strike again

Crystal Palace's Julian Speroni requires a Harry Kane warning

Adam Johnson, John Terry, David Silva and that man Harry Kane are likely Premier League scorers on matchday 21...

"Harry Kane has scored five goals in his last five Premier League matches."
Recommended Bet: Back Kane to score @ 13/82.62

Sunderland v Liverpool (Saturday, 12:45, BT Sport 1)

Adam Johnson has scored in three of his last four Premier League games

Johnson's recent scoring spurt is quite the feat for a player who has averaged just under a goal every five outings since moving to Sunderland in 2012, and his chances of extending it are aided by his flair for the big occasion. Three of his four Premier League goals this term came against Tottenham, Man City and in the Tyne-Wear derby against Newcastle. He netted against Spurs and the Magpies last season too.

Recommended Bet: Back Johnson to score @ 5/16.0


Chelsea v Newcastle (Saturday, 15:00)

John Terry has scored in three of his last four Premier League appearances

Terry has got more Premier League goals for Chelsea than Andriy Shevchenko and Fernando Torres combined, but he has rarely enjoyed a spell of prolificacy as impressive as striking past Stoke, West Ham and Tottenham in the past three weeks. Latest opponents Newcastle leaked eight times across their last three league matches, conceding three at home to Burnley - the division's second tamest attack - in the most recent.

Recommended Bet: Back Terry to score @ 8/19.0


Everton v Man City (Saturday, 15:00)

David Silva has scored five goals in his last six Premier League games

Stevan Jovetic is fit, Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero are back in training and Wilfried Bony seems to be Etihad Stadium-bound, but Man City have been so productive when light on strikers that there is no great urgency to get them all available. Man City have notched at least twice in each of their last five fixtures despite Dzeko and Aguero missing the lot, and Silva's form has been a major reason why.

Recommended Bet: Back Silva to score @ 9/43.3


Crystal Palace v Tottenham (Saturday, 17:30, Sky Sports 1)

Harry Kane has scored five goals in his last five Premier League matches

There were several attempts to slow the Kane bandwagon, with popular lines including that he only delivers in cups and against inferior sides, but five goals in five Premier League games have damaged those claims, especially as there was a brace against Chelsea in that run. Opta note that the 21-year-old has the best Premier League minute-to-goal ratio of any player to fire at least five times for Spurs, with one every 149 minutes to Jurgen Klinsmann's 169.

Recommended Bet: Back Kane to score @ 13/82.62
