There is a very clear theme running through our five goalscorers to watch this weekend as some familiar names to Premier League fans seek redemption elsewhere.

Despite being discarded after struggles in England, they are all bang in form and getting a surprising amount of goals.

Back Alexandre Lacazette to score at anytime @ 6/5

Alexandre Lacazette was the most consistent goalscorer in French league football before his move to Arsenal, rattling in a remarkable 76 goals in 95 games across his last three seasons with Lyon.

Now back in 'The Gastronomic Capital of the World', the 31-year-old has been cooking on gas again with an impressive personal tally of seven goals in his last nine Ligue 1 matches.

After hitting the back of the net four times in his last two outings, Lacazette goes up against a defence that conceded seven against Monaco in their last league game when Ajaccio plays host to Lyon on Sunday afternoon.

Back Ademola Lookman to score anytime @ 21/20

As Everton desperately try to sign a goalscorer in the January transfer window, they must be thinking how on earth they let Ademola Lookman slip through their fingers.

The Nigerian is among the hottest strikers in Europe's top five leagues at the moment after producing 10 goals in his last 12 Serie A appearances for Atalanta.

Lookman has hit braces in three consecutive games since mid-January during a run in which Atalanta have scored 16 goals.

The Bergamo club entertain second-bottom Sampdoria, who have the third-worst defensive record in Serie A, this weekend and can expect to continue their extraordinary goalscoring sequence.

Back Felipe Anderson to score anytime @ 23/10

Felipe Anderson has scored six Serie A goals for Lazio this season

Now plying his trade straight through the middle, ex-West Ham winger Felipe Anderson is enjoying the best goalscoring run of his career at Lazio.

The Brazilian has bagged six Serie A goals in 19 appearances this season, including three in six starts as Maurizio Sarri's chosen centre forward.

His confidence will be sky high when Lazio host mid-table Fiorentina after making it four goals in his last four games in all competitions during the Biancocelesti's 4-0 hammering of AC Milan in midweek.

Back Timo Werner to score anytime @ 6/5

Chelsea fans would cringe at these odds, but not RB Leipzig backers that have seen Timo Werner score 83 goals in 138 Bundesliga appearances across two spells with the club.

The 26-year-old scored his fifth league goal of the campaign in Leipzig's 6-1 away demolition of Schalke on Tuesday to make it four strikes in his last six in all competitions.

And if you believe in the law of the ex-player scoring against his old team then Stuttgart, who are just above the relegation zone, could be in trouble from the striker they sold on in 2016.

Back Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting to score anytime @ 5/4

The career of former Stoke striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting has blossomed since he left the Potteries and he is now firmly established as the first-choice option up front for Bayern Munich.

The Cameroonian has bagged an impressive 12 goals in his last 17 appearances for the Bundesliga champions, adding to his tally with a goal at RB Leipzig last weekend.

He has scored in nine of his last 11 club appearances, netting 11 goals in this period and assisting two more.
