Raheem Sterling has been cut to 12/1 in bwin’s Premier League top scorer odds after hitting the target in Manchester City’s 3-1 win over Everton.
The England winger ended a difficult week by taking his tally for the season to nine in this competition, just one off the top of the table.
Pep Guardiola said of the 24-year-old: “I see him so calm. I think he has handled in the last years many situations, rumours, people saying not nice things about him, his family or the colour of his skin.
“So, that is why I admire him. He is calm, happy playing, beloved in the locker room, so it is good.
“Of course, we are very pleased with him. It is important Raheem scores goals. Young players still can improve and that is the only way to move forward.”
Eden Hazard has been trimmed to 16/1 after moving up to eight by netting in Chelsea’s 2-1 triumph at Brighton.
The Belgium talisman set up Pedro before scoring himself and now has 98 goals for the club.
He said: “I know it’s close to 100 goals for Chelsea, but that’s not in my mind, I just want to win games for Chelsea, that’s important.”
The 27-year-old picked up an ankle knock late on, but feels confident that niggle will not hold him back for long.
“I think it’s not too bad, I’ll chat with the doctor, but not too bad,” Hazard told Chelsea TV. “I just twisted it a bit.”
Sadio Mane is on seven after breaking the deadlock in Liverpool’s 3-1 triumph over Manchester United and can be backed at 28/1 in bwin’s Premier League top scorer odds.
