Lukaku leads chase for Premier League Golden Boot

Everton hotshot Romelu Lukaku
1 of 1

Here are three things to watch for this weekend ...

1 Golden Boot race hots up
The Premier League top goalscorer betting market took a dramatic twist with favourite Harry Kane facing a spell on the sidelines and it's all change in the betting with Tottenham's 19-goal hitman out to 9-2 and Romelu Lukaku slashed to 2-1.

Lukaku, who like Kane is on 19 goals, is two clear of 3-1 poke Diego Costa and 7-1 shot Alexis Sanchez and those four have daylight between themselves and the hunting pack.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic (18-1) still has two matches to sit out of his domestic suspension and will therefore be stuck on 15 league goals for a while and next best is recalled England striker Jermain Defoe of Sunderland on 14.

2 Jurgen top of the Klopps against big boys
"Can we play you every week?" is a chant usually aimed at the league's lesser lights but Liverpool supporters could be forgiven for singing that at Manchester City on Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp's side have a stunning Premier League record against top-half teams this season - played 13, won eight, drawn five - and against the other members of the top six it is P9 W5 D4.

As Jimmy Greaves used to say, it's a funny old game.

3 Ronaldo closes in on scoring record
Talking of Jimmy Greaves, Cristiano Ronaldo needs one more goal to overtake the English legend in becoming the highest-scoring player in Europe's elite five leagues.

Ronaldo is level with Greavesie on 366 and is 4-5 with 188Bet to bag at Athletic Bilbao on Saturday.

It's all change in the betting with Tottenham's 19-goal hitman out to 9-2 with Romelu Lukaku slashed to 2-1
