The Egyptian has already proven he is not a one-season wonder, having notched up 17 goals already in the Premier League so far. But, while Manchester United tasted defeat in their last match against Liverpool, they managed to keep Salah quiet throughout the game.

After a frustrating night against Bayern Munich, Salah will be eager to grab any opportunities that come his way, especially with the potential of moving into a lead atop the Premier League table if they manage to win.

Danny Ings – Southampton

While Ralph Hasenhuttl was the catalyst of Southampton’s improvement in form and results, Danny Ings was what carried out the change on the field, along with the rest of his teammates. The Saints have continued to gather points but have slowed down to an extent.

Up against an Arsenal side that has shown they are prone to errors at the back, Southampton will need Danny Ings to be on song on Sunday.

Jamie Vardy – Leicester City

Things aren’t all rosy at Leicester City. Three losses in as many matches, with a tinge of unrest in the dressing room as well, Claude Puel has his hands full. One of the players who has reportedly been growing unhappy under the manager is Jamie Vardy. Yet to reach double figures in the league this season, Vardy has 3 goals in his last 10, but all of them coming in either wins or against top opposition.

Leicester are up against Crystal Palace, who are not yet out of the danger of being swept back into the relegation zone, with the Eagles only three points above Southampton. The Foxes will be hoping to improve their home form and would need Vardy to fire home one or two on Saturday.

Raul Jimenez – Wolves

Bournemouth have been vulnerable at the back recently. Raul Jimenez is in good form right now, with 3 goals in his last 3 league games and the Portuguese will also be looking to hit double figures for the season. Jimenez will fancy his chances against Bournemouth and Nuno Espirito Santo might just fancy his team putting on a late run to perhaps challenge for the top six by the end of the season.

Bobby Reid – Cardiff City

Two wins out of two and Cardiff fans are dreaming of another season in the Premier League. Out of the relegation zone after a long time, Bobby Reid was the man behind their win against Bournemouth, with a converted penalty and another goal to secure the result.

Reid will be key again as Watford pay a visit. Perhaps, another goal or more?
