| 25.09.2015

Few players cause such fear to one team as Sergio Aguero does to Tottenham. The little Argentine has netted more goals against Spurs than any other side, totalling 10 in just seven appearances.

Spurs fans are unlikely to have forgotten the damage Aguero caused last season, netting every goal as City claimed 4-1 and 1-0 wins.

Aguero has scored the opening goal in each of the last three meetings between the two sides, and two of those have come inside the magic Sharp Shooter 25 minutes.

The 27-year-old is 4/1 to kick off your weekend and score first, and you can double that to 8/1 if he stays true to his Tottenham antics.

Eden Hazard hasn’t enjoyed the success which saw him waltz through Premier League defences weekend after weekend last season, but with Diego Costa suspended, he’s set to be the main man against Newcastle on Saturday night.

With the Toon struggling for form, and goals, in addition to crashing out of the Capital One Cup at home to Championship Sheffield Wednesday in midweek, Chelsea are in prime position to capitalise on the Magpies’ woes.

Hazard scored a hat-trick against Newcastle 18 months ago in a 3-0 win, and also grabbed the opener in a 2-0 win in August 2012.

Both of those strikes came inside the opening half an hour, and with Newcastle in disarray you can be looking at doubling his 11/2 odds to score first at St James’ Park should be come up trumps again in those first 25 minutes.

Watford’s Odion Ighalo has scored more goals in 2015 than any other player in the Football League.

Half of the 26-year-old’s strikes last season broke the deadlock and he’s also scored in every game that his Hornets’ side have netted this season.

After scoring the only goal in the 1-0 victory at home to Swansea, the former Udinese man grabbed both goals last weekend in the 2-1 win at Newcastle with his first coming well inside the Sharp Shooter zone at just 10 minutes in.

With Sunday’s opponents Crystal Palace having lost their way a little of late, Ighalo looks fine value at 6/1 to score first, 12/1 if he finds his shooting boots early on.
