Heung-min Son Goalscorer Odds
Tottenham is on a charge. With the fourth and final Champions League spot still up for grabs, Spurs have hit a rich vein of form at the best possible time, with Harry Kane and Heung-min Son leading from the front. Antonio Conte’s men have won seven of their last nine games. In doing so have taken themselves above Arsenal and into fourth, albeit the Gunners have a game in hand.
💫 Following his hat-trick this weekend, Heung-Min Son now sits 10th on the list of all-time Spurs goalscorers.

The Kane/Son combination that has been so productive over the last few seasons has been hitting the heights again but with Conte using Kane in a slightly different role. Ever since his arrival in the big time, Kane has been predominantly used as an out-and-out number nine by successive Tottenham managers. However, Conte has given him the freedom to drop off and use his ability to pick a pass in the number ten role.
As a result, this allows Son and Swedish loanee Dejan Kulusevski to get beyond Kane into more advanced positions. This is part of the reason why Son – who scored a hat-trick against Aston Villa last Saturday – is on a hot scoring streak. Brighton will be hard-pressed to contain the South Korean.
- Pick: Heung-min Son to score (-118)
Cristiano Ronaldo to Score a Header Odds
It’s been a season of discontent at Old Trafford. The Red Devils parted company with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in November and replaced him with Ralph Rangnick on an interim basis. But it’s a managerial change that hasn’t worked. United still languish in seventh and have plenty of work to do to get into the Champions League places.

Ronaldo’s return though has been one of the bright spots of their season with 12 goals so far. This includes the winner against Norwich at Carrow Road earlier in the season. The Portuguese superstar has scored regularly, even in a side that has misfired, and at 37-years-of-age is still causing headaches for opposition defenses.
Although Ronaldo may have lost a yard of his once-electric pace, he’s lost none of his guile or instinct and, if anything, is a greater threat than ever in the air. Against a Norwich defense that has struggled all season, it’s easy to see him getting on the end of a cross in the danger area.
- Pick: Cristiano Ronaldo to score a header (+400)

Granit Xhaka Odds to Be Booked
A month ago, Arsenal looked on course for a top-four finish. But their Champions League dream has been derailed as a result of them losing three of their last four games. Manager Mikel Arteta has cut a frustrated, agitated figure on the touchline. And things at the Emirates are getting tenser as the games run out.

As part of Arsenal’s leadership group, midfielder Xhaka has felt the Gunners’ pain more than most and, in his role of ‘enforcer’, will play a key role in the run-in. The Swiss international’s liking of a tackle has led him to many yellow cards in his time at the Emirates. Having already collected seven this season, it seems inevitable there are more to come.
Against what is bound to be a highly motivated Southampton team, there is value in the +160 on offer for him to collect another on Saturday.
- Pick: Granit Xhaka to be booked (+160)
