Christian Eriksen is already in double figures for the season

The Opta trends hint at Dwight Gayle, Niko Kranjcar, Danny Ings and Christian Eriksen scoring this Saturday...

"Christian Eriksen has scored in two of his three Premier League games against West Brom."
Recommended Bet: Back Eriksen to score at West Brom @ 16/54.2

All of these games are on Saturday at 15:00

Crystal Palace v Everton

Dwight Gayle has scored five goals from just seven shots on target in the Premier League this season

Gayle's contribution to Crystal Palace has been underappreciated since he signed in the summer of 2013. Despite netting 20 times in that period, he has only been granted 19 starts, and the arrivals of Yaya Sanogo and Shola Ameobi create even more competition. Alan Pardew appears keen to give him a chance though, picking him in his two Premier League matches as boss and being rewarded with three goals.

Recommended Bet: Back Gayle to score @ 11/43.7


Stoke v QPR

Niko Kranjcar has scored three goals in five Premier League games against Stoke

In case that statistic doesn't arouse your interest, Opta add on the nugget that he has a two-from-two record when it comes to acquainting ball with net at the Britannia Stadium. Kranjcar converted in the reverse fixture at Loftus Road this term too, and Stoke have managed just one clean sheet in their last nine home encounters, conceding a troubling 14 goals during that sequence.

Recommended Bet: Back Kranjcar to score @ 7/18.0


Sunderland v Burnley

Danny Ings has scored in each of his last three Premier League appearances

Hype has surrounded Ings all season because of both his contract situation (his deal expires in the summer) and strike rate in the Championship, but it was initially arguable that, while he was playing well, he wasn't scoring consistently enough in the Premier League. The 22-year-old has ruined that perception by going three-in-three in 2015, at the expense of Newcastle, QPR and Crystal Palace.

Recommended Bet: Back Ings to score @ 9/43.3


West Brom v Tottenham

Christian Eriksen has scored in two of his three Premier League games against West Brom

Tottenham's Mr Last Few Minutes performed one of his most heroic acts yet in midweek, grabbing a late equaliser at Sheffield United to secure their place in the Capital One Cup final. It was the Dane's fourth goal in the 88th minute or beyond since November 23 in the past ten weeks. Three of those came away from White Hart Lane. He has notched an impressive seven times in total in that spell.

Recommended Bet: Back Eriksen to score @ 16/54.2
