The black and yellow boys at bwin will double your winnings if you back the first goalscorer and he scores again in the Manchester Derby, and three more of the best matches the weekend has left to offer.
We’ve dug down into the data to bring you the value picks from this quartet of top-level tussles:
Manchester United v Manchester City – Juan Mata to score first @ 17/2
The biggest on-pitch story at Old Trafford this term has been the form of goalkeeper David de Gea, who single-handedly kept his side in countless games early on in the campaign, while midfielder Ander Herrera took the plaudits for a brace at home to Aston Villa last time out, making it seven for the season.
However, United’s third Spaniard has one more than the former Athletic Bilbao man in 2014/15, and claimed his third double in a Red Devils shirt in the 2-1 win at Liverpool last month.
Mata has been out in force on the airwaves prior to the Manchester Derby, and he could be the man for the occasion.
Malaga v Atletico Madrid – Antoine Griezmann @ 4/1
Los Colchoneros boss Diego Simeone seems to have gone right off Mario Mandzukic, with the former FC Bayern Munchen striker starting just two of his side’s past seven matches, but with Griezmann on 19 goals for the season, he won’t mind too much.
After a slow start to life at the Vicente Calderon, 11 of the French international’s last 17 goals have come in multi-strike hauls, and he has opened the scoring five times since early December.
QPR v Chelsea – Charlie Austin @ 23/2
The rise of Harry Kane at Spurs has somehow clouded the fact that fellow Englishman Austin has struck an incredible tally of 17 goals in the Premier League this term, with a hat-trick and a brace amongst them.
With no reliable first-goal options among the Chelsea ranks bar Eden Hazard, who has only doubled up once with 18 all-competition strikes this season, the former Burnley man looks the part at Stamford Bridge having bagged in each of his past couple of appearances.
Liverpool v Newcastle – Jordan Henderson @ 7/1
Newcastle’s horrible run of four goals in their past eight games means none of the visiting forwards can be trusted with a bet at Anfield, but backing the hosts’ captain-in-waiting for an opener makes plenty of sense.
With no Steven Gerrard or Mario Balotelli about, Liverpool’s joint-top scorer in the Premier League this term will take any penalties, as he did successfully in the 4-1 loss at Arsenal, and has notched four in his last seven club outings, so there’ll be no one in better form on Merseyside.
