Another dose of Premier League action is on the agenda this weekend, which can only mean one thing: It’s time to predict the scores and outline a cheeky run of bets for those willing to take a gamble.

Last week’s round of fixtures served up few surprises, unless you’re a Liverpool fan or an enthusiastic Manchester United follower. The Red Devils’ 4-1 defeat to local rivals Manchester City will still hurt the red side of the city, but fear not, your luck can only get better, right?

With this in mind, let’s take a look at the next round of Premier League predictions, followed by the best goalscoring bets to follow this weekend.

Having failed to score in his first three fixtures across all competitions this campaign, the classy Spaniard has now netted in three consecutive games. This includes Premier League goals against Liverpool and Crystal Palace, the latter of which was last week’s only tip to earn punters some cash.

Michu also netted in the hostile atmosphere of Valencia's Mestalla, proving he is good enough to perform on the European stage. Despite facing an in-form Arsenal side, the slick forward is more than capable of rocking Arsene Wenger’s men with another strike.

Can Michu replicate the smart double he scored at the Emirates last season? The gamblers amongst you should be excited by the potential of this one.

Stevan Jovetic, Manchester City

Stevan Jovetic Goalscoring Odds vs. Aston Villa

Last goalscorer 7-1
To score in 90 minutes 12-5
To score a brace 14-1
To score a hattrick 80-1

Odds via Skybet.

Manuel Pellegrini confirmed on Friday that Sergio Aguero will miss Manchester City’s trip to Aston Villa, so the goalscoring onus will fall elsewhere this weekend.

Aguero’s terrific double in the Manchester derby reminded everyone of his ridiculous touch, intelligent positioning and prowess in front of goal. However, City have plenty of other world-class strikers to fill the void—in particular Stevan Jovetic.

Having lit up Serie A over several years, Jovetic will prove himself one of the most intelligent players in the Premier League. He failed to impress in City's last away outing at Stoke, but scored twice in the midweek League Cup win against Wigan.

Paul Lambert’s Villa side have suffered a major blow heading into the upcoming match, as Christian Benteke’s injury is likely to keep him out for six weeks, as reported by Sky Sports

Without his hold-up work, City should be able to control the game and Jovetic will benefit from the immense strength of Alvaro Negredo next to him.

Romelu Lukaku, Everton

Romelu Lukaku Goalscoring Odds vs. Newcastle
Bet: Odds:
First goalscorer 7-2
Last goalscorer 7-2
To score in 90 minutes 10-11
To score a brace 9-2
To score a hat-trick 25-1

Odds via Skybet.

It barely even matters if Romelu Lukaku plays a full game or not.

Despite receiving a knockout blow to the head when scoring Everton’s winner against West Ham, the Belgian powerhouse continued exactly where he left off last season in the Premier League. Coming into the game at the start of the second half, it was almost inevitable to see his name flash up on the scoreboard.

The fixture against Newcastle is Lukaku’s first eligible home game as a Toffees player. With the likes of Nikica Jelavic and Arouna Kone struggling to score goals, the Goodison Park crowd will be crying out to see their on-loan hero.

Roberto Martinez would be foolish not to give the impressive 20-year-old significant playing time versus a Magpies team that conceded three goals to Hull City during their last Premier League match.

A confident Lukaku is something to be feared, even if the unwanted Chelsea forward can raise you a decent amount of money.
