As the international break is upon us now is a good time to visit the Top Goalscorer market again.  Here are new predictions of the Barlcays Premier League.

Diego Costa

Minutes on Pitch: 589

Shots on Target: 16

Goals: 9

Goal Average: Scores every 65 mins

Odds: 8/11

Diego Costa’s early season stats speak for themselves. Nine goals in seven games, despite playing with an ongoing hamstring problem, show just what the Spaniard could be capable of this season. A goal-to-shot ratio of 56% is terrifyingly good as well. And with a supporting cast including messrs Fabregas, Oscar and Hazard, it’s unlikely his hot form will end anytime soon.

Sergio Aguero

Club: Manchester City

Minutes on Pitch: 438

Shots on Target: 12

Goals: 5

Goal Average: Scores every 87 mins

Odds: 4/1

Sergio Aguero remains a sound bet despite Costa’s early dominance. He’s got previous; he ended last season 1ith 17 games from 23 games (goal to game ratio of 0.75), and will continue to thrive under Manuel Pellegrini’s love of attacking football. The Argentinian is slightly injury-prone however, and will miss games due to City’s probable progress in European and domestic cup competitions.

Saido Berahino

Club: West Bromwich Albion

Minutes on Pitch: 629

Shots at goal: 10

Goals: 5

Goal Average: Scores every 125 mins

Odds: 50/1

Pint-sized poacher and currently the Premier League’s top English goalscorer, Berahino is likely to start most games up front barring injury (he’s only missed one minute so far). He’s a reliable penalty taker who will ultimately be let down by the Baggies poor league form. A good each way bet.

Graziano Pelle

Club: Southampton

Minutes on Pitch: 630

Shots at goal: 10

Goals: 4

Goal Average: Scores every 157 mins

Odds: 25/1

A previously unheard of frontman, Pelle has blossomed while leading the line for surprise package Southampton this campaign. A goal-to-shot ratio of 40% isn’t to be sniffed at either, although his final goal return will be based largely on if the Saints can maintain their impressive early season form or not.

Radamel Falcao

Club: Manchester United

Minutes on Pitch: 275

Shots at Goal: 4

Goals: 1

Goal Average: Scores every 275 mins

Odds: 20/1

Ignore the stats, Falcao is just becoming adjusted to the pace of English football. He’s shown enough in his four appearances so far to suggest that goals aren’t far away, and with the likes of Van Persie, Rooney, Mata and Di Maria supplying the ammunition the Colombian is well worth a look.

Daniel Sturridge

Club: Liverpool

Minutes on Pitch: 270

Shots at goal: 5

Goals: 1

Goal Average: Scores every 270 mins

Odds: 16/1

Despite an injury-hit campaign – he’s not played in the Premier League since August – Sturridge is a proven performer at this level, and finished last season as the division’s top goalscorer with 21 (if we can forget Luis Suarez for a moment). But like all great double acts; Laurel & Hardy, Ant & Dec, Cannon & Ball, if you take one out of the equation then the other suffers. Can anyone at Anfield step up to provide the same level of service as Suarez?

Any other contenders?

Robin Van Persie (16/1); Edin Dzeko (33/1); Romelu Lukaku (33/1).
