Harry Kane’s untimely injury picked up in the 4-1 win over Bournemouth on Sunday, has seen Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah installed as the new favourite to be the Golden Boot winner, he is currently 4/5 with Betvictor.
Both Kane and Salah failed to find the net in their respective games at the weekend, and both are still locked together on 24 goals in the Premier League top goalscorers chart.
If Kane’s injury layoff is for longer than anticipated, that will obviously play into the hands of anybody currently on Salah. The Egyptian’s odds will be further cut if it is announced that Kane is set to be out for weeks, rather than days.

In outright winner Champions League Betting, Manchester City are still favourites at 16/5 with 10Bet to win the trophy outright, Real Madrid are now into 4/1 second favourites after knocking out early season favourites, PSG, in Paris last night.
In the end VAR and the snow turned out to be the biggest obstacles in the way of Spurs, and a date in the 6th Round of the FA Cup, as Mauricio Pochettino’s team ran out easy 6-1 victors over League 1 Rochdale, at Wembley on a cold Wednesday night.
Spurs now occupy joint favouritism to lift the FA Cup, at 9/4 with William Hill, alongside Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United side.
In the 6th Round, Spurs travel to South Wales to take on Swansea City on 17th March, while joint fellow favourites, Manchester United, face Brighton at Old Trafford on the same day.
Both will obviously expect to progress from those fixtures, but for Spurs, if they do, they will have the massive advantage of what will effectively be a home match in the semi-finals, as both are to be held at Wembley.
With Man City now out of the competition, the FA Cup now represents a huge chance for Spurs to finally claim a trophy under Pochettino, which will certainly keep the pundits happy, and will also no doubt please star players like Harry Kane and Dele Alli, whose heads may eventually get turned if Spurs can’t win any silverware.
Not only is this a huge match in terms of Top 4 Finish Betting, but today’s fixture between Liverpool and Tottenham also represents a huge showdown between the two most prolific strikers in the Premier League this season, as Mohamad Salah and Harry Kane are also going head-to-head.
At the moment Kane leads the way at the top of the goal scoring charts with 21 strikes, to Salah’s 19 Premier League goals.
They both have an impressive strike rate of a goal every 98 minutes, with only Sergio Aguero on a goal every 100 minutes coming close, these three are also the favourites in the top goalscorer betting with Paddy Power, with Kane at 1/3, Salah at 9/2, and Aguero at 5/1, in an apparent 3 horse race. The next best are Raheem Sterling and Romelu Lukaku, both at 50/1.
Arsenal and Chelsea meet on Wednesday for the right to face Manchester City in the final of the Carabao Cup, and we’re all hoping for a more exciting 2nd leg, than we got in the first game. The match is live on Sky Sports (kicking-off at 8pm), and Betfair have a great new customers offer available on the match.
Don’t forget that as this is a cup competition, this offer is a 90 minutes only offer. So if the match finishes 2-2 after 90 minutes, and goes to an extra 30 minutes extra time, the bet will be classed as a draw, no matter what happens in the additional 30 minutes.
The tie is all square at 0-0 after the 1st leg, it’s all to play for. Both sides played a cagey match at Stamford Bridge a couple of weeks back, but I’m sure that this match will be a lot more open, and will hopefully have a lot more chances, and a few goals.
Monday night it’s the turn of in form Liverpool, and Betfair are running a great new customers offer if you think the Red’s can keep their magnificent form going against struggling Swansea City. The match is live on Sky Sports, kicking off at 8pm.
Liverpool are fresh from a thrilling 4-3 victory over Manchester City, and they are in red hot form at the moment, pardon the pun. In 90 minutes betting, Betfair have Liverpool as 3/10 favourites. The draw is 9/2, and a Swansea win is 11/1.
Man City host Newcastle in this weekend’s Saturday evening kick off, and Coral have a great new customers offer if you think City will bounce back from last week’s Anfield defeat, with a victory over Rafa’s Newcastle later.
As you only need a goal to be scored for this bet to win, City can even lose tonight, and you would still win. The more likely outcome though, is a Man City goal. If 0-0 worries you (it shouldn’t too be honest), then have a little cover bet on the Betfair Exchange.
90 minutes betting sees City as 2/15 favourites with Coral. A draw is 8/1, and an unlikely Newcastle win is a huge looking 28/1.
Liverpool take on Everton in the FA Cup tonight, kick-off is at 7.55pm, and this is a rare live TV match on the BBC. Liverpool start the match as 4/9 favourites with William Hill, Everton are 8/1, and the draw is 18/5.
With this being a very high profile TV match, there is a few decent new customer offers. Starting with Coral who have a great offer on a Yellow Card being shown……..
I expect there may be a few changes in personnel for tonight’s match, Liverpool have already stated there will be no Coutinho and Mohamad Salah, although Big Sam was saying on Thursday that given Everton’s league position, that they are able to give the FA Cup a real go, so maybe changes to Everton’s team might be limited.
If Liverpool do make wholesale changes the 55/1 on Everton from 888Sport will look mighty appealing.
There is a full round of FA Cup 3rd Round fixtures over the weekend, so make sure you have a decent acca insurance offer in place if you’re placing an accumulator over the weekend.
I do have an element of sympathy with Mark Hughes. He was always on a hiding to nothing yesterday at Chelsea. Eyeing the bigger picture, Hughes left out Peter Crouch, Xherdan Shaqiri and Joe Allen, saving them for the Bank Holiday Monday fixture against Newcastle, as that is obviously a match which will have more bearing at the bottom of the league.
Having said that, had Stoke performed better in recent weeks, then Hughes wouldn’t be in this position. So it’s hard to have too much sympathy, you are where you are for a reason.
Next in the betting is Southampton’s Mauricio Pellegrino, the same two firms have him as 15/8 second favourite. Now I’m not suggesting for a minute that Claude Puel is the greatest manager in the history of football, and he has had a reasonable start at Leicester, a relatively stable club.
But on the face of it, sacking Puel at the end of last season looks to be one of the dumbest decisions in football. The Frenchman led the Saints to 8th in the Premier League, and to the EFL Cup final, were they only narrowly lost to Man Utd.
Sacking him is not quite up there with the Gary Rowett decision at Birmingham City, but it certainly ain’t too far behind it when it comes to daft decisions!
