EPL: Bookies Predict Goals Galore - Bradley On The Brink – Can Vardy Get The Party Started?

The Premier League is ready to be set alight this weekend, with many anticipating a deluge of goals given the fixture list. United face Tottenham, Leicester host Manchester City and Liverpool take on West Ham’s derisory defence. William Hill are offering 25/1 that week 15 will witness a record-breaking number of goals, with the current high standing at 43.

25/1 Forty four or more goals this weekend

Bob Bradley For The Boot!

Another key fixture to keep an eye on will be Sunderland’s visit to Swansea City’s Liberty Stadium. The Swans have suffered greatly as of late. They were offered a brief reprieve in their frenetic 5-4 victory of Crystal Palace but were brought crashing back down to earth during their dismantling at the hands of Tottenham 5-0. As such, Swansea’s Bob Bradly, is favourite to be the next manager to lose his job at 11/8 and failure this weekend might well be the tipping point.

Next Manager To Go: 11/8 Bob Bradley, 7/4 Slaven Bilic, 5/2 Alan Pardew, 7/1 Mike Phelan, 14/1 David Moyes, 16/1 Walter Mazzarri, 20/1 Jose Mourinho, 25/1 Aitor Karanka, 25/1 Sean Dyche, 33/1 Claudio Ranieri, 40/1 Eddie Howe, 40/1 Mark Hughes, 40/1 Ronald Koeman, 40/1 Tony Pulis, 66/1 Claude Puel, 66/1 No Manager To Leave, 100/1 Antonio Conte, 100/1 Arsene Wenger, 100/1 Jurgen Klopp, 100/1 Mauricio Pochettino, 100/1 Pep Guardiola

Vardy Drought Set To continue

Jamie Vardy will also be feeling the pressure, having gone 738 minutes without scoring in the Premier League for Leicester. In fact, his last goal came in his side’s 4-1 loss to Liverpool back in September. He is 11/5 to end his drought on Saturday against Manchester City, though perhaps has a better chance in the following matches against Bournemouth and Stoke, where he is 5/2 and 4/1 to finally score respectively.
