Wayne Rooney and Edin Dzeko Favoured for Top Goalscorer


With both Manchester-based players already notching hat tricks this season it's not especially surprising to see them topping the Premier League goalscorer tables. It truly was a day of bold declarations two Sundays back as United and City taught North London a footballing lesson exemplified by a combined score of 13-3.


The race for Premier League top goalscorer can always be a bit unpredictable and we definitely saw a bit of that last year with the underwhelming Dimitar Berbatov topping the list. Javier Hernandez also gave it a real go but his goals tended to be spread throughout the rest of the competitions while Berbatov's chiefly came against lower-profile operation in the Premier League.

As it currently stands, Wayne Rooney gets the slim edge with a 3/1 price that still delivers plenty of value. Edin Dzeko – still expected to adjust to the Premier League style of play for a while at least – is just a shade behind at a tempting 7/2.

The real key to these types of wagers is a player staying healthy and having a good run of three or four games where they score two or more. Both key contenders are topping the table because of big one-off performances but it's the 7 goals in 8 games type of runs that win you this title as opposed to putting three past Wigan yourself and then cooling off for a month.

Sergio Aguero is expected to provide some competition and he does look especially dangerous though he may be involved in more link-up play than outright finishing. Punters will find him trading at a 6/1 price tag. Luis Suarez can be backed at 7/1 and that should be a popular one with Liverpool fans. With Andy Carroll not looking quite himself you can expect Suarez to be receiving the ball often in and around the box.

Chicharito is trading at 10/1 while Carlos Tevez can be backed at a 12/1 price. Those looking for a steady-Eddie type may do well to back Darren Bent at 14/1 while Robin Van Persie is listed at an identical price. Anybody feeling especially brave can back Fernando Torres at a mere 16/1.
