Opta Stats: West Brom striker to keep the mill grinding

Saido Berahino has been linked with a January move to Liverpool

Christian Benteke, Charlie Austin, Christian Eriksen and Saido Berahino will net this weekend, judging by these Opta insights...

"Saido Berahino has netted six in his last three games for the Baggies in all competitions."
Recommended Bet: Back Berahino to score in Everton v West Brom @ 13/53.6

Aston Villa v Liverpool (Saturday, 15:00)

Christian Benteke has scored four goals in four Premier League appearances against Liverpool

Liverpool have suffered at the feet of Benteke more than any other Premier League club and their defensive record this season - six clean sheets in 31 games - suggests that they are more susceptible to be a beating from the Belgian than ever before. Don't let the Reds keeping two clean sheets in their last six league fixtures fool you: they were breached at a rate of two a game in the other four.

Recommended Bet: Back Benteke to score @ 11/53.2


QPR v Man United (Saturday, 15:00)

Charlie Austin has scored eight goals in his last seven Premier League games at Loftus Road

Austin has been so effective since stepping up to the Premier League that he is the division's third highest scorer on 13 goals, a mere two shy of top spot. In that time, he has fired past Chelsea, Man City, Southampton and Arsenal, meaning that Man United are the only top-five side that he has left to tick off. Louis van Gaal's men have managed just one clean sheet in eight away league outings.

Recommended Bet: Back Austin to score @ 9/43.3


Tottenham v Sunderland (Saturday, 15:00)

Christian Eriksen has netted in both of his Premier League appearances against Sunderland

Eriksen will assume an unusual position lurking under the radar, as the spotlight is on Harry Kane - who has struck six times in six league appearances - and Jermain Defoe, who joined Sunderland right in time to debut against his former team, who he was training with this month. Ignoring him will be punished though: only 13 Premier League players have a 2014/15 tally better than the Dane's seven.

Recommended Bet: Back Eriksen to score @ 2/13.0


Everton v West Brom (Monday, 20:00, Sky Sports 1)

Saido Berahino has netted six in his last three games for the Baggies in all competitions

Berahino may be happy at West Brom, but transfer rumours will persist for as long as he sustains his electric recent form. Having followed his prolific start with an 11-match lean streak, the 21-year-old is undeniably back to his best, striking past West Ham and Hull either side of a four-goal feast against Gateshead in the FA Cup. Everton's defence failed to shut out any of their previous 12 opponents.

Recommended Bet: Back Berahino to score @ 13/53.6
