Sadio Mane (Liverpool) to score against West Ham (13.30) –

Liverpool scored at least four goals in five of their last 10 home league games last season, so backing any one of their attackers to find the net against West Ham has a decent chance of returning profit.

But, at a longer price than Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane is undoubtedly the best bet here.

The 26-year-old has scored on both previous opening weekends of his Liverpool career, as well as in five of his last seven appearances at Anfield.

Manolo Gabbiadini (Southampton) to score against Burnley (13.30) –

Charlie Austin is the big odds-on favourite here, so I’m going to plump for his strike partner, who is nearly double the price.

Gabbiadini has started Southampton’s last three friendlies, scoring two pre-season goals to Austin’s one. He also netted a vital winner in his final appearance of last season against Swansea.

Playing this match less than 72 hours after an away game at Istanbul Basaksehir, Burnley are likely to give up more chances than usual.

Mariano Diaz (Lyon) to score against Amiens (14.00) –

Mariano opened the scoring in a 3-0 for Lyon in this fixture in April, and history should repeat itself on Sunday afternoon.

The Brazilian finished last season with 20 goals, and will be leading the line for a side – featuring Memphis Depay and Nabil Fekir – that scored at least twice in all of their last six home games of last season.

Amiens, the second-favourites for relegation, lost eight of their last 12 away matches last term.
