Opta Stats: Benteke to continue bulldozing at Norwich

Christian Benteke has been a revelation at Villa this season

It's that time of the week where Christian Crowther picks out four more likely goal grabbers ahead of the Premier League action...

"Christian Benteke has already scored more Premier League goals this season than any other Aston Villa player has managed in a single campaign (18)."
Best Bet: Back Christian Benteke to score @ 2/13.0

Dimitar Berbatov - Fulham v Reading (Saturday, 15:00)
Dimitar Berbatov has scored five goals in four league clashes with the Royals
Mercurial and a little moody he may be, however, without Berbatov's goals, Fulham would undoubtedly be spending the last few weeks of the season with much sweatier brows. This notion is superbly highlighted by the fact that - excluding own goals - only Berbatov (five) and Sascha Riether (1) have found the net for Fulham in their last 11 league games, a run stretching back to the beginning of February. Relegated Reading have more than a hint of sitting ducks about them now.
Recommended Bet: Back Dimitar Berbatov to score @ 7/52.42

Christian Benteke - Norwich v Aston Villa (Saturday, 15:00)
Christian Benteke has already scored more Premier League goals this season than any other Aston Villa player has managed in a single campaign (18)
Aston Villa's bulldozing Belgian was extremely unlucky not to pick up the PFA's Young Player of The Year accolade, as it's hard to remember a fledgling foreigner having such an impact in the Premier League. Benteke has netted no fewer than 13 goals from 15 games in 2013 and his hat-trick in Villa's rout of Sunderland may just be the most important anyone has scored in a claret-and-blue shirt for many a year.
Best Bet: Back Christian Benteke to score @ 2/13.0

Gareth Bale - Tottenham v Southampton (Saturday, 15:00)
Gareth Bale has scored in three successive Premier League games
Benteke's misfortune in missing out on PFA recognition for a glittering campaign is all down to Tottenham's very own scoring sensation. Bale's ballistic left-foot has not only scooped him both individual awards but also provided Spurs with 19 Premier League goals to date, one more than his Aston Villa counterpart. Of course, Southampton is where it all began for Bale but, with eyes fixed on the Champions, League he'll not be in nostalgic mood at White Hart Lane.
Recommended Bet: Back Gareth Bale to score @ 1/12.0

Daniel Sturridge - Liverpool v Everton (Sunday, 13:30, Sky Sports 1)
Daniel Sturridge has scored seven goals and made three assists in 11 Premier League appearances for Liverpool
Liverpool fans' fears over their team's ability to score goals without suspended talisman Luis Suarez were quickly blasted from their minds after the Reds smashed Newcastle for six on Saturday. It was a performance of some magnitude from Brendan Rodgers' side and, playing in his favoured central role, Sturridge continued to flourish in a red shirt with a well-struck brace. The ex-Chelsea man should thrive again against Everton, who've not won at Anfield in 12 attempts in the league.
Recommended Bet: Back Daniel Sturridge to score @ 6/42.5
