Opta Stats: Big-match Yaya to deliver again at Everton

Yaya Toure is the third-top scorer in this season's Premier League
  • vs

The Opta stats point to Andy Carroll, Wayne Rooney, Wilfried Bony and Yaya Toure enjoying Premier League matchday 37...

"Yaya Toure needs one more goal to become just the second central midfielder to score 20-plus goals in a PL season."
Best Bet: Back Toure to score at Everton @ 3.259/4

West Ham v Tottenham (Saturday, 12:45, BT Sport 1)
Andy Carroll has scored in both previous meetings with Tottenham as a West Ham player
West Ham's record signing hasn't scored at home since his permanent transfer, though with injuries restricting him to six appearances there, the ratio isn't as dire as it sounds. Both his record against Tottenham and West Ham's five goals across two visits to White Hart Lane this term without him suggests this is a great chance to open his account. Despite their recent improvement, Spurs have leaked 21 times in their last ten outings.
Recommended Bet: Back Carroll to score @ 3.39/4

Man United v Sunderland (Saturday, 15:00)
Wayne Rooney has scored six goals in his last five Premier League appearances
There's a case for backing Champions League club-conqueror Connor Wickham to net at Old Trafford after his brace at Man City and strike in the victory at Chelsea. However, Rooney's two goals against Norwich last week, a second successive home Premier League double, and his third in five at all venues, leads this column to rate him the most likely scorer in Ryan Giggs' second clash in charge.
Recommended Bet: Back Rooney to score @ 1.768/11

Swansea v Southampton (Saturday, 15:00)
Wilfried Bony has scored a brace in each of Swansea's last two Premier League games
The Ivorian forward helped guide last week's edition to Profitville and there is no logic in abandoning him ahead of a Liberty Stadium collision with a side that have shipped ten goals in their last five road trips. Bony is up to a superb 24 goals in his debut campaign in England and 15 of those have come in the Premier League, a tally rendering him the division's joint-sixth top scorer despite the Swans struggling.
Recommended Bet: Back Bony to score @ 2.526/4

Everton v Man City (Saturday, 17:30, Sky Sports 1)
Yaya Toure needs one more goal to become just the second central midfielder to score 20-plus goals in a PL season
Toure's venture into a territory only previously traipsed across by Frank Lampard will be completed if he notches at Goodison Park, and given his habit of deciding massive matches, who would doubt him? At this point two seasons ago, Man City had reclaimed the initiative in the title race, but had to win at top-four outsiders Newcastle in their final away fixture to stay in control, almost an identical situation to this Saturday teatime at Everton. On that occasion, Toure stepped up with two efforts in the closing 21 minutes in a 2-0 Citizens triumph.
Best Bet: Back Toure to score @ 3.259/4
