Back lethal Lukaku and potent Pelle in deadly 10/3 double!

Romelu Lukaku and Graziano Pelle goals pay 10/3 with Coral this weekend

The traditional centre forward is a dying breed in modern football, but prolific Premier League pair Romelu Lukaku and Graziano Pelle are keeping the art of the number nine alive, and can be backed at a tremendous 10/3 both to score anytime in this deadly double from Coral.

Between them Lukaku and Pelle have clocked-up 10 goals in the English top-flight, marking themselves out as two of the division’s most in-form marksmen.

Lukaku a goal hero at Goodison Park

Imperious Everton forward Lukaku was touted as a natural successor to Didier Drogba when he was at Chelsea, but it is away from Stamford Bridge that he has proven his worth, plundering goals for the Toffees.

The bullish Belgian has been excellent this term, grabbing crucial strikes in big games against Liverpool, Southampton and former loan club West Bromwich Albion.

Lukaku will certainly have the chance to fill his boots on Sunday, as he squares-up to a Sunderland defence that has been breached on 19 occasions already.

Sam Allardyce has arrived but has had little time to implement his defensive style, as was shown by the Black Cats’ fragility prior to Fabricio Coloccini’s sending off against Newcastle United last time out.

The Mackems know all about Lukaku, as he notched against them three times in two victories for West Brom back in 2012/12, and will not relish facing this powerhouse of a striker on Sunday.

Pelle a proven predator

Prolific Pelle is no mere support act in this scorer special, as the Italy international has been the star of a wonderful Southampton team this season, with his recent all-round performances some of the best you will see from a frontman.

The Azzurri attacker has struck 10 goals for club and country already in this campaign across all competitions, and is also fresh from notching against Aston Villa in midweek.

Pelle should head into this south coast derby full of confidence then, as Bournemouth have shipped 10 goals in their previous two top-flight matches, and the Saints sharpshooter will be keen to exploit any backline weaknesses.
