Theo Walcott and Christian Benteke in fab 5/1 scorer double

Coral bring you another sensational scoring special as the new Premier League season gets underway, which features Theo Walcott and Christian Benteke at 5/1 to score anytime.

Having put pen to paper on a new four-year deal recently, Walcott, who has five in his last five against first opponents West Ham United and also ended last term in prolific form, will be confident of having a sensational season with the Gunners. Fellow teammate Aaron Ramsey has the inside track on the attacker and has talked up his chances for the upcoming campaign.

“He looks sharp, he looks strong and he can be dangerous,” Ramsey said of Walcott. “He is a goalscorer – he has a load of goals for Arsenal and I think he can carry that on and maybe get into the 100 Club this year.

“He’s a very strong character. He believes in his abilities and he definitely has a lot of qualities to offer. He can finish – one of the hardest things to do in football is to put the ball in the back of the net and he’s done it on numerous occasions for Arsenal. Hopefully he can continue doing that.”

Christian Benteke starts a new chapter of his career at Liverpool and, after a stunning strike in pre-season, the Belgian looks as though he could be just what the Reds need. He has two in four against Stoke City, and is set to be unleashed on them again by Brendan Rodgers.

So much so, former teammate at Aston Villa, Darren Bent has tipped him to challenge for the Premier League Golden Boot award. Bent shocked fans when, after moving to Sunderland five years ago, he dispatched 17 goals in 36 Premier League appearances for the Black Cats, finishing three shy of joint-winners Carlos Tevez and Dimitar Berbatov.

“I think Benteke will be really, really good [at Liverpool]. I reckon he could be the Premier League’s top scorer,” Bent said.

“He did really well at Villa and he’s gone to Liverpool, which is a massive club. If he can stay fit he can score 20-plus goals quite comfortably this season.”
