We have picked out five players who will be confident of finding the back of the net this weekend.

Aleksandar Mitrovic (Evens anytime for Fulham vs Nottingham Forest)

There were justifiable concerns over how Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic would fare this season given his struggles in previous Premier League campaigns, but the Serbian has been on fire in 2022-23. 

In four previous top-flight campaigns, Mitrovic has scored one goal every 4.3 appearances, averaging only six goals a season. 

This term he has already struck six times in just six Premier League outings and that tally is all the more impressive considering four of his goals have come against Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham. 

This weekend he heads to the City Ground, where he scored twice last season as Fulham ran out 4-0 winners against Nottingham Forest. 

Ivan Toney (7/4 anytime for Brentford vs Arsenal)

Brentford face a tough test against Arsenal but will not be overawed against the league leaders. 

The Bees beat Arsenal 2-0 at the Gtech Community Stadium last season and currently sit eighth in the league thanks to the incisive attacking displays that have made them the second-highest scorers in the Premier League behind only Manchester City. 

Thomas Frank’s men have yet to draw a blank in any of their six league outings, thrashing Manchester United 4-0 and Leeds 5-2, and leading the charge is Ivan Toney, who already has five league goals and will be on a high following his England call-up. 

He could notch against an Arsenal side who have been outscoring opponents rather than shutting them down, keeping just two clean sheets in six games and conceding seven goals. 

Richarlison (5/4 anytime for Tottenham vs Leicester)

VAR denied Richarlison his first Tottenham goal in his full debut for the club against Fulham a fortnight ago, but he could get his Premier League tally up and running against Leicester. 

The Brazilian has looked sharp every time he has come off the bench and was rewarded for his impressive display against Fulham with starts against Marseille and Sporting in the Champions League, netting twice against the Ligue 1 side. 

With Heung-Min Son struggling for form and Dejan Kulusevski making way for the former Everton man in the last three Spurs matches, it would be a surprise if he did not line up against Leicester. 

A dispirited Foxes side are likely to offer up plenty of opportunities as they have conceded the second-most goals in the Premier League this term and were shambolic in defence when losing 5-2 to Brighton last time out. 

Alexander Isak (19/20 anytime for Newcastle vs Bournemouth)

Newcastle will expect to see off Bournemouth and recent signing Alexander Isak will be keen to showcase his goalscoring ability on his second appearance at St James' Park for his new club.

During an eye-catching debut at Liverpool at the end of last month, the Sweden international scored the opener and also had a goal disallowed by VAR. 

The Cherries have conceded a league-high 18 goals so far this season, although that figure is skewed by their 9-0 hammering at Anfield. 

The Magpies, who have already hit three at home against defending champions Manchester City this term, will be confident of putting at least two past the south coast outfit with Isak set to be the focal point of the home side's attack.

Marko Arnautovic (Evens anytime for Bologna vs Empoli)

Manchester United came close to swooping for Marko Arnautovic in the summer and might wish they had completed the deal given the Austrian's fine start for Bologna. 

The 33-year-old has netted six of Bologna’s seven Serie A goals this season, only blanking away at AC Milan while scoring against Lazio and earning all three points against Fiorentina last weekend. 

His side entertain Empoli on Saturday and Arnautovic will fancy his chances of extending his goalscoring run against a side who have yet to win a game this season and have kept just one clean sheet in seven league and cup outings.
