English Football: Top strikers to net…

There are a few eye-catching games scheduled this afternoon, starting with Arsenal‘s home game with West Ham.

This will be the first game since the shock announcement that long-term manager Arsene Wenger will be leaving at the end of the season. The players will be keen to say goodbye properly, and West Ham could run into a whirlwind.

We look for striker Alexandre Lacazette to score today.

The second league game that springs to mind is Manchester City‘s first home game since clinching the Premier League title. They face Swansea, and are likely to want to put on a show, especially with no European football midweek.

With leading striker Sergio Aguero out injured, Brazilian striker Jesus is set to lead the line. We expect him to get on the end of at least one of the plethora of chances likely to come his way.

The final game in focus is the second FA Cup semifinal, with Chelsea playing Southampton for the right to face Manchester United in the final.

While the Saints would love to go to Wembley, their potential relegation from the Premier League is more important and that could be their focus.

Chelsea, on the other hand, have little else to play for. They are unlikely to finish in the top four, and so they can fire all their main weapons at this game. We look for Chelsea’s most talented player, Eden Hazard, to stamp his authority on the game and score.

Recommendation: Lacazette, Jesus and Hazard all to score anytime as a treble, 1 pt, at around 6/1, Paddy Power
