Costa and Giroud feature in Coral’s thrilling 3/1 scorer double

To celebrate the return of the Premier League to our screens, Coral offer this sensational special, featuring both Diego Costa and Olivier Giroud at 3/1 to score anytime.

Chelsea host Burnley, who they walloped 3-1 in their first match of this season, and new signing Costa’s impact was immediate, as he sprung up to net the equaliser, getting on the end of a well-worked Blues move.

It is hardly surprising that the devastating striker, who leads the Premier League scoring charts with 17 strikes, is overwhelmingly odds-on at 8/11 to notch anytime.

Costa’s relationship with Chelsea’s supporting cast is almost telepathic, hence the extraordinary goal haul so far, and with Eden Hazard, Willian and Cesc Fabregas behind him, his strike record isn’t a shock, all things considered. Then if they don’t produce the goods for him, he can be comforted knowing that there is also Oscar and Juan Cuadrado, joint-top assistant from the World Cup, on hand to try pulling his strings.

Arsenal, meanwhile, travel to Crystal Palace. Giroud netted in this fixture last season and, since his return from injury this season, has been impressive.

He talked about the size of his ambition recently, revealing his aims when he joined the club. “To improve as a player was my target when I signed for Arsenal,” said Giroud.

“I always wanted to improve myself and give everything for the team, for the fans and the club. I love this shirt and I want to achieve big things with this team.”

The centre forward is 5/4 to net anytime against the Eagles, and has a tally of 10 goals in 18 appearances for the north London outfit this term.

His form also earned him praise from manager Arsene Wenger recently, who said: “Giroud is today a different player to the guy that arrived here, he understands what top level football demands – he works with a great concentration in training and he has improved in his mobility tremendously and his technical quality. And of course his body is very strong and he uses it very well.”
