Another enthralling weekend of Premier League football is upon us as we enter the final three weeks of the season. It also provides you with another chance to take down Betway's 4 To Score jackpot which has rolled over to an incredible £50,000 after nobody managed to scoop it last weekend! We've done our best to help you heed your hunch with your selections this weekend by previewing the four games that you'll need to predict the first scorer in.
Crystal Palace vs Everton
The first fixture of this weekend's 4 To Score games sees Marco Silva's Toffees travel to Selhurst Park to take on Roy Hodgson's side with their eyes still firmly focused on a Europa League spot. The Eagles will be coming into this in terrific form after a superb 3-2 away win at the Emirates but unfortunately for them, Shkodran Mustafi hasn't secured an emergency loan move to Everton in time for this weekend's game. Palace are infamously poor at home this season and we're backing the visitors to take all three points and so it makes sense to plump with one of their men to open the scoring.
It's hard to look past their Brazilian star Richarlison who's bagged 13 goals in 33 Premier League games since making the switch from Watford. In the 11 games that he's scored in, he's also scored the first goal in 8 of them including last week when he opened the scoring in their 4-0 demolition of Man United.
Brighton vs Newcastle
The second game of the weekend is a clash at the wrong end of the table as strugglers Brighton host Rafa Benitez's side knowing that they desperately need a result in order to stave off the challenge of Neil Warnock's Cardiff City. Chris Hughton's side are still just three points clear of relegation and this is their last realistic chance to pick up three points given that their final two games are against Top 6 sides in Arsenal & Manchester City. Even more bad news for the Seagulls is that Newcastle arrive on the South Coast in terrific form, winning 5 of their previous 9 games and we're backing the travelling Geordies to be sent back up North with all three points.
Given that we're backing Newcastle to get the win, it makes sense to suggest their in-form Spaniard Ayoze Perez to open the scoring. He's been banging them in lately, with 4 goals in his last 2 games, opening the scoring in both games and we fancy that rich vein of form to continue on Saturday evening against the low-flying Seagulls.
Leicester City vs Arsenal
The third game is Sunday's midday fixture between Leicester and Arsenal with the Gunners still somehow in the Top 4 race despite seemingly doing everything possible to throw it away after defeats to Crystal Palace and Wolves. Arsenal have notoriously struggled away from home this season, conceding 30 goals already on their travels in the Premier League so it should hopefully pay to side with the hosts on Sunday afternoon.
We went for Jamie Vardy last week and although he didn't score the opener at the London Stadium, he did get himself a goal against the Hammers and we're hoping that he can find the opener this weekend. His record against the Gunners is incredible, scoring 6 goals in his last 7 matches against them and let's hope we're all having a Vardy Party going into the final 4 To Score match of the weekend.
Man United vs Chelsea
The final game of this weekend's 4 To Score games is a vital clash in the race for Champions League football as the Blues travel to Old Trafford hoping to strengthen their grip on a Top 4 spot. The Red Devils were taken apart by Pep Guardiola's side on Wednesday night, as rather surprisingly a defence consisting of Young, Darmian, Smalling, Lindelof and Shaw weren't able to keep out the attacking prowess of the champions.
Despite the hosts' poor run of form since Ole was given the job on a permanent basis, Chelsea are unlikely to pose too much of a threat having failed to overcome struggling Burnley at Stamford Bridge on Easter Monday. Therefore we're going for a stalemate 0-0 draw with both sides lacking the confidence to get on the scoresheet. Let's hope De Gea can rediscover his form on Sunday to complete a successful 4 To Score jackpot win of £50,000!
