We were one goal out on Tuesday. If Burnley had netted against Ipswich, we would have been in the money! We'll dust ourselves down and go again and there's plenty of action to choose from on Saturday afternoon. 

 

 

Leicester v Spurs

This one screams goals. Leicester have won 4-2 and 2-1 so far and their defensive frailities seem ever present, but importantly they are scoring goals and it's winning them games. They let 2 in against a quite frankly awful Sunderland side but smashed 4 past them and Shinji Okazaki grabbed his first goal of the season at the weekend. Riyad Mahrez appears to be going from strength to strength and I fancy them to score against a Spurs side who can't defend to save their lives. Poccettino's men gave away a two goal lead at the weekend against Stoke and Harry Kane is now surely due to break his duct for the season. With Eriksen pulling the strings, they are bound to create chances and I fancy them to get on the scoresheet. 

 

Burnley v Brentford

It's always dangerous returning to a side who let you down last time out, but I will side with Burnley to produce the goods here. They didn't score against Ipswich, but that was on the road against a side who are now top of the pile. Brentford didn't play in midweek because of pitch issues, but they have been involved in high scoring affairs so far – they won 4-2 at Bristol City last weekend after going behind and they came from 2 behind to draw with Ipswich on the opening weekend. Expect goals here. 

 

Fulham v Huddersfield 

Goals seem to follow Fulham about. They were so close to getting a creditable draw away at Hull in midweek, but a cruel late Sone Aluko striker prevented them from taking home anything. They'll be expecting better against Huddersfield here back at Craven Cottage. They have goals in them with Matt Smith and Ross McCormack leading the line and goalscoring midfielder Tom Cairney in behind them. Huddersfield aren't prolific by any means, but they do possess Nakhi Wells, James Vaughn (when fit), Harry Bunn, Jacob Butterfield and Sean Scannell, so you'd expect a few more strikes than we've seen so far. 

 

Barnsley v Bradford

Surprisingly, Bradford find themselves bottom of the table in League One, but they won't be there for long. They are better than their current position and will pick up results. They have goals in them, James Hanson scored at both ends in midweek and Billy Clarke has already got on the scoresheet this season. Luke James must also start scoring for his new side sooner or later. Barnsley are decent at home and will pick up a fair few points, they also have goals in them and it was pleasing for Barnsley fans to see Sam Winnall get on the scoresheet in midweek as they came back and won against Millwall. There should be goals for both sides here. 

 

Northampton v Plymouth 

Northampton didn't manage to get on the scoresheet in midweek when losing 2-0 to Barnet. They did go down to 10 men when Jason Taylor was dismissed for giving away a penalty and it's a long way back from there. They do better back at Sixfields where they've scored 6 in their last 2 home games. Plymouth have started well under Derek Adams and utilised the Scottish market well. Graham Carey has been scoring for fun and former Birmingham man Jake Jervis got his first two goals of the season in midweek alongside the prolific (last season) Reuben Reid.
