League leaders Manchester City travel to Wigan on Monday night knowing they need to get back on track amidst their most indifferent run of the season so far.
Goals look a certainty, with City boasting a record as the league’s top scorers and Wigan in possession of one of the Premier League’s poorest defensive records.
Adam Johnson has come back into favour of late, and with key players missing at the African Cup of Nations, is likely to start again at the DW Stadium.
The tricky winger is always dangerous, and priced at 7/1 to score first.
Punters may choose to back a different first goalscorer though, in the knowledge their stake will be refunded should Johnson find the net at any time.
Sergio Aguero and Mario Balotelli are priced at 3/1 to notch first, while Edin Dzeko is desperate to get back on the goal trail, and could prove a fruitful bet to do so at 7/2.
