Premier League: Dallas from distance…

There may be a high-profile game taking place at Wembley this evening, but there are still three Premier League matches to enjoy this Saturday.

First up sees Burnley host Leeds at Turf Moor. Leeds were excellent in beating Tottenham last week and they should have too much for the Clarets who have been struggling at their Turf Moor home.

Stuart Dallas is having an outstanding goalscoring season. He’s best priced at 5/1 to score anytime, which is very tempting, but we’ll push the boat out and take the 14/1 on offer that he scores from outside the penalty area, as half of 8 goals this season have been from distance.

Next up sees Southampton host Fulham at St. Mary’s Stadium. Fulham were relegated on Monday and life doesn’t look like getting better for them at Southampton, particularly now the Saints have Danny Ings firing up front.

The star striker returned from injury in Southampton’s victory over Crystal Palace last time out, and promptly scored twice. We’ll take him to get the ball rolling today by scoring the opening goal.

The late games sees Brighton hosting West Ham at the Amex Stadium, with game potentially one determined by motivation. The hosts have little to play for now their Premier League safety has been assured, while the Hammers are fighting tooth and nail for a top four position which would cement an impressive season.

Jesse Lingard has been in great form having scored 9 goals in 13 league games this season. He’s 6/4 to score anytime, but we’ll take the 9/2 that this shot-happy midfielder nets first.

Recommendations:

Burnley/Leeds: Dallas to score from outside the area, 1 pt, at 14/1, SkyBet

Southampton/Fulham: Ings to score first, 1 pt, at 9/2, William Hill

Brighton/West Ham: Lingard to score first, 1 pt, at 9/2, William Hill
