Fearsome four could cop in Ladbrokes’ Sharp Shooter


The opening weekend of the Premier League season brings us four televised games and punters will have more reason that ever before to tune in.

Ladbrokes’ new Sharp Shooter offer will First Goalscorer odds doubled for any player that nets first and within the first 25 minutes of game in front of the watching TV cameras.

The season gets underway with Manchester United hosting Tottenham at Old Trafford and with Red Devils captain Wayne Rooney returned to his favoured central striker role the England ace looks a great shout to cop in this fantastic offer.

The United talisman netted 12 goals last season, despite being deployed in midfield for much of the campaign, and saw exactly half of those strikes come first.

With three of those goals coming in the opening 25 minutes few players look better placed to get the scoring underway in the early kick-off than the 4/1 shot.

Next on the TV schedule is the first of the opening Super Sunday clashes where title hopefuls Arsenal will entertain West Ham.

Olivier Giroud is the pick here after the Frenchman netted 14 times last season and opened the scoring an impressive seven times.

Like Rooney, the Frenchman netted an opener in the relevant timeframe three times and in front of a home crowd who would back against the 3/1 Gunners ace hitting the ground running again.

The late kick-off in Sunday sees Stoke host Liverpool, who arrive with their newly-acquired £32m man Christian Benteke leading the line.

The Belgian fired 13 league goals for Aston Villa last term with a whopping eight of those coming first.

Four of those strikes came in the opening 25 minutes and with better service at Liverpool the 9/2 to him breaking the deadlock at the Britannia looks too good to ignore.

Completing the action on the telly box this weekend are West Brom and Manchester City who get this season’s Monday Night Football underway.

City fans may begrudge the delay to their campaign but if Sergio Aguero starts it’ll be worth the wait.

The Argentine is a doubt with a virus but if he shakes it off in time is a cert to score – under the weather or not.

The Sky Blues ace netted 26 times last year and opened the scoring on 13 occasions.

With nine of those strikes coming in the opening 25 minutes Kun is the epitome of the term Sharp Shooter and looks great value even at 10/3 and at double that price if this offer cops he could prove the bet of the weekend.
