Van Persie and Hazard in anytime goalscorer double special
Manchester United travel to lowly West Bromwich Albion, while Chelsea tackle London rivals Tottenham at Stamford Bridge with two goal-grabbing players in Robin van Persie and Eden Hazard. They are priced at 5/1 to both net in their respective Premier League fixtures.
Dutch national captain Van Persie lines up against a team that seem happy to gift him the goals. He has four in his last six against the Baggies and is odds-on at 10/11 to score again at The Hawthorns anytime.
Although his Manchester United side sit back in seventh place (and are 10/1 for a top four finish), their star forward has certainly been relied upon when it comes to scoring, with eight in his last 10 league games.
Back the Red Devils odd-on at 4/5 for victory in this away fixture. Pepe Mel has yet to win in his first six West Brom matches, and is joint second-favourite with his United counterpart David Moyes at 9/2 to be the next Premier League manager to leave.
Hazard hopes he can find the net too as Jose Mourinho’s Blues host Spurs. Chelsea are looking to further enhance their title chances and are now favourites to win the league at 6/5.
Belgian star Hazard has been in fantastic scoring this term in the league, with 12 in 28 so far, including his recent hat-trick against Newcastle. He has odds of 15/8 to net anytime against Chelsea’s London rivals.
On top of that, he boasts a fantastic home record of 16 goals in 27 games in all competitions since joining the club – a ratio of just less than 60 per cent.
Mourinho’s men go into this match-up odds-on favourite to win at 4/7 and, with the regular strikers still failing to consistently deliver, don’t back against Hazard to help his side out.
