Opta Stats: Tottenham star to see Sherwood off in style

Emmanuel Adebayor tried to earn Tim Sherwood a second term
  • vs

The Opta trends point to a cheery final Sunday for Emmanuel Adebayor, as well as Frank Lampard, Robin van Persie and Wilfried Bony...

"Against no side has Emmanuel Adebayor scored more Premier League goals than Aston Villa (six)."
Best Bet: Back Adebayor to score against Aston Villa @ 2.285/4

Cardiff v Chelsea (Sunday, 15:00)
Frank Lampard has scored against 38 different clubs in the Premier League; Cardiff aren't yet one of them
With Lampard under the weather, it is probably wise to wait until the teams are in to bet, but the 35-year-old midfielder will be eager to start what could yet be his last game for Chelsea, and has been more involved recently, starting the last three matches that he has been eligible for. This has been his weakest goalscoring campaign in over a decade, but five of his last seven successful efforts arrived away from Stamford Bridge.
Recommended Bet: Back Lampard to score @ 3.55

Southampton v Man United (Sunday, 15:00)
Robin van Persie has scored five goals in five Premier League appearances against Southampton
It speaks volumes for the standards by which van Persie is judged that this injury-littered season in which the perception is that his form has been flaky has still yielded 18 goals in 22 starts. The latest of those came as a substitute against Hull in midweek, while Opta reveal that his five-in-five record against Southampton is even better after removing Arsenal outings: four-in-three for Man United.
Recommended Bet: Back van Persie to score @ 2.6213/8

Sunderland v Swansea (Sunday, 15:00)
After failing to score in his first 11 Premier League away appearances, Wilfried Bony has scored five in five
The Stadium of Light is hosting a survival party this weekend and if Connor Wickham is the guest of honour for Sunderland - alongside Gus Poyet of course - then Bony is the main reason why Swansea haven't perished. The Ivorian has contributed 15 goals in 26 starts in his first Premier League term and is more at home with every performance, as two braces in his last three games demonstrates.
Recommended Bet: Back Bony to score @ 3.39/4

Tottenham v Aston Villa (Sunday, 15:00, Sky Sports 3)
Against no side has Emmanuel Adebayor scored more Premier League goals than Aston Villa (six)
Tim Sherwood's short and surreal stint as Spurs boss is expected to end after this fixture - and with the soundbite specialist leaving the club with Europa League football next term so long as they don't lose - but his bromance with Adebayor will surely live far longer. The pair have been brilliant for one another (well, besides Adebayor dodging that free kick at West Ham), and the Togolese striker's 13-goal tally under Sherwood, the most recent four at White Hart Lane, should swell to create a chance for a farewell salute.
Best Bet: Back Adebayor to score @ 2.285/4
