Kelechi Iheanacho

The Leicester City frontman is expected to feature against in-form Arsenal in a game that could go either way owing to both sides’ recent knack for scoring bucketloads. 

Seniorman had a rather underwhelming outing at Brentford last weekend, but he ought to play as the Foxes chase a third straight Premier League win for the first time this season. 

While Arsenal’s away record this season has been up and down, they did pick up an impressive 3-1 success at the King Power Stadium last season and Mikel Arteta will rouse his troops to deiver a repeat performance in the hope of securing their second league win on the road.

Troost-Ekong & Dennis

Despite conceding twice last time out, William Troost-Ekong’s Watford recorded a 5-2 success at Everton, their first victory at Goodison Park.

Emmanuel Dennis’ part in the success was marked, with the forward coming off the bench to score and set up hat-trick hero Joshua King in the unexpected success.

Southampton are this week’s visitors to Vicarage Road as Claudio Ranieri’s charges look to claim his first win at his new stomping ground.

Having lost 5-0 against Liverpool a fortnight back, the Italian will want a response against Saints on Saturday. 

Michael Olise

Crystal Palace face a daunting Manchester City encounter this weekend seeking only their second victory under Patrick Vieira.

Olise’s quality and creativity was on show in last week’s 1-1 draw with Newcastle United and he was unlucky to not register a goal contribution for the third successive game.

Despite the Eagles’ dearth of wins, their performances have been promising and alarm bells won’t start ringing if they don’t pick up the desired result in what is a free-hit against Pep Guardiola’s Cityzens

Simy vs Osimhen

The frontmen clash this weekend when Salernitana play host to high-flying Napoli this weekend.

After a slow start, Simy’s two goal involvements in the strugglers’ last three games is perhaps an indication of a player slowly finding his feet at the club.

Victor Osimhen, on the other hand, has been one of Napoli’s better players, central to the team’s impressive start this season.

Nigeria’s number nine will back himself to add to his increasing haul in front of goal when both sides face off in Campania. 

Taiwo Awoniyi

Another strike in the DFB Pokal win over SV Waldhof in midweek means Union Berlin’s top scorer has now scored in seven games on the trot in all competitions.

Bayern Munich are the visitors to Berlin this weekend with the in-form Nigerian seeking his eighth Bundesliga strike this season.

Union are unbeaten in 21 games at Stadion An der Alten Forsterei and Urs Fischer’s men will strive to continue the division’s longest unbeaten run against a side reeling from their 5-0 Pokal defeat by Borussia Monchengladbach.
