Due to FA Cup semi-finals this weekend, only 12 clubs will be involved in Premier League action this weekend. Therefore, only six games will be played this weekend and this has prevented a lot of top strikers from making in to our list of top strikers for game week 34.
There are few exceptions, however, as the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and Everton will be involved in the action.
However, Zlatan Ibrahimovic suffered a serious-looking injury in the Europa League win over Anderlecht and he is set to miss the trip to Burnley this weekend.
In key fixtures this weekend, Liverpool will host Crystal Palace, United will travel to Burnley and Everton will travel to West Ham.
Now, let’s take a look at our top five strikers:
1. Romelu Lukaku – Everton
Lukaku retains his top spot in our list as the Toffees will travel to West Ham this weekend. The Belgian has been enjoying a superb scoring streak and is currently leading the goalscoring charts with 24 goals in 32 appearances. He has also provided six assists. He is available at 10.5m in the market but he is worth every penny as he has an impressive point total of 109 points. He has picked up a total of 12 points in his last two games and we are backing him to pick up a few more at the Hammers.
P/P Score: 10.8
2. Joshua King – Bournemouth
The Cherries striker lands the second spot in our list. He is available for just 5m in the transfer market and he has a decent point total of 55 points. The Norwegian has scored an impressive total of 12 goals, including a hat-trick. He has also contributed with two assists in a total of 32 appearances, which includes 27 starts. The Cherries will host Middlesbrough this week and we are backing to bag some points against Boro.
P/P Score: 11.8
3. Troy Deeney – Watford
Watford are travelling to 17th-plaved Hull City on Saturday, and Deeney is a good bet to score a goal in the game. He is available for 8m in the transfer market and has a total of 42 points. He has a total of 10 goals on 31 appearances. He also has four assists this season.
P/P Score: 5.8
4. Fernando Llorente – Swansea
Swansea might find themselves in the bottom three but Llorente has been in decent form of late. The Swans will host Stoke City this weekend and it would be a good opportunity for the Spaniard to add to his tally of 11 goals in 28 appearances. He is available for 7.5m and has a total of 42 points.
P/P Score: 6.1
5. Christian Benteke – Crystal Palace
The Belgian occupies the last spot on our list. He has a total of 39 points and is available for 8.5m in the market. He has scored 12 goals and provided two assists in 30 appearances this season.
P/P Score: 5.1
