With so much football on at the moment, you might not have had a chance to look at the contenders to get on the scoresheet this weekend, so we have done the hard work for you with our top five selections.

Phil Foden (6/4 anytime for Manchester City v Brighton)

No Premier League midfielder has more goals to his name than Phil Foden this season, and the Manchester City ace can add to his tally of six when one of his favourite opponents comes to the Etihad Stadium.

Foden has netted five times in six previous meetings with Saturday's opponents Brighton, including a brace in a 4-1 City win on the south coast last season.

The England international finished the last campaign with nine league goals but is on course to smash that personal landmark having found himself getting in the penalty area more and more since then.

He has fired in 12 shots on target across his ten league outings, more than reigning Golden Boot holder Mohamed Salah and should get his chances to set his sights on goal against a Brighton side that is a little more open under Roberto De Zerbi.

Martin Odegaard (5/2 anytime for Arsenal v Southampton)

A return of four points from their last two games marks a turnaround in fortunes for Southampton, but the Saints have been a little lucky to have only conceded once recently.

A wasteful West Ham side registered 25 shots when they visited St Mary's last weekend, while Bournemouth had 15 attempts in their midweek loss to Southampton.

With their best defender Armel Bella-Kotchap currently sidelined with a shoulder issue, it's unlikely Ralph Hasenhuttl's men are going to tighten up anytime soon and leaders Arsenal should create chances.

Topscorer Gabriel Jesus is reportedly playing with an injury, so it is worth considering alternatives when weighing who might score for the Gunners.

Martin Odegaard appeals, having registered four shots on goal in Arsenal's 1-0 win at Leeds last weekend.

The Norweigan has been letting fly all season, with only Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli having more shots on target for Arsenal in the league.

Odegaard already has three Premier League goals to his name and holds an edge over his teammate as he takes Arsenal's free-kicks.

Ivan Toney (13/8 anytime for Brentford v Aston Villa)

Brentford drew a blank against Chelsea in midweek but should get back amongst the goals when they travel to Aston Villa on Sunday.

The locals are growing increasingly fed up with Villa boss Steven Gerrard, and there is a good chance Ivan Toney can help the Bees deepen the gloom at Villa Park.

Toney currently sits third in the Golden Boot standings with eight goals to his name, bagging a brace in Brentford's win over Brighton last Friday.

The 26-year-old maintained his 100% record from the penalty spot for Brentford with his second against the Seagulls, while he was on target for the West London side in a 1-1 draw with Villa last season.

Toney needs to keep putting in strong performances if he wants to be on the England plane to Qatar, and Villa look obliging hosts, having kept two clean sheets in their last 11 home outings.

Daichi Kamada (9/4 anytime for Eintracht Frankfurt v Borussia Monchengladbach)

The place to be for goals in the Bundesliga this weekend is Borussia Park, where home side Gladbach scored five on their most recent outing on home soil.

They play host to a Frankfurt side fresh from putting five past Bayer Leverkusen, and a repeat of last season's thrilling 3-2 win for the Eagles in Monchengladbach would not come as a surprise.

Gladbach's Marcus Thuram leads the goalscorer betting at 7/5, with LiveScore Bet having netted four in his last four appearances, but there is more value to be found further down the list.

Frankfurt's Daichi Kamada is also in good goalscoring form, bagging a brace against Leverkusen to take his tally for the season to six in the league.

The Japan international scored the winner in Frankfurt's victory over Gladbach last season and is averaging close to two shots on target per game.

Gladbach's defence has looked vulnerable of late, conceding 11 goals in their last four games, and Kamada should have opportunities to find the net.

Jonathan David (21/20 anytime for Lille v Monaco)

Canada frontman Jonathan David will head to Qatar in fine form, having bagged nine goals in 11 Ligue 1 appearances for Lille this season.

A brace against Strasbourg last time out saw David move level with Neymar at the top of the goalscoring charts in France, and he can continue his hot streak when the Mastiffs host Monaco on Sunday.
