Romelu Lukaku and Mo Salah have edge over Cristiano Ronaldo in weekend Six Shooter

Planet Sport Bet has another Six Shooter this weekend, and two players stand out from the rest.

Everyone knows that the Premier League is full of incredible goalscorers, but can you predict which one will score the earliest goal over a weekend?

If you think you can, then Planet Sport Bet's Six Shooter special is perfect for you. The rules are simple: it's a six-player race and you back your winner. Whoever from the six scores the fastest goal (in minutes) takes the spoils - or you could back them all to draw a blank.

This week we have a veritable top of the table showdown at Anfield, and we can finally talk about a confident Harry Kane again. Who, though, offers the best value among the Six Shooters?

Romelu Lukaku (Chelsea vs Southampton)

The Saints' stunting of Manchester City at the Etihad last month shows they can be tough to break down, even for the best.

However, Southampton's form over the whole of 2021 has been awful. And they haven't won a Premier League match yet this season, although they have drawn four.

With every game that passes without a win, the pressure increases and it feels like sooner or later Southampton will capitulate.

Chelsea may well be the team to make that happen, and considering two of Lukaku's three goals this season have come in the first half, he's a good player to back here.

Cristiano Ronaldo (Man Utd vs Everton)

Cristiano Ronaldo grabbed a dramatic last-minute winner for Manchester United in their Champions League win over Villarreal.

The Portuguese star has been as prolific as you'd expect after returning to Old Trafford, scoring in four of his five games.

However, he may find early goals hard to come by against a Rafa Benitez team.

The Spaniard is as pragmatic as they come and you just know he will have a plan in place to contain Ronaldo.

Will it work? Probably not. This is Cristiano Ronaldo after all. It may take him a little time to wriggle free of the inevitable shackles, though.

Harry Kane (Spurs vs Aston Villa)

Harry Kane has looked a shadow of his former self in the Premier League for Spurs after failing to force through his summer move to Man City, but there are signs he is starting to stir into life.

The England captain came off the bench to score a 20-minute hat-trick against Mura in the Europa Conference League on Thursday, and it can only have done his confidence the world of good.

Aston Villa will, of course, provide a significant step up in the quality of opposition, and Spurs' scars from that damaging derby defeat to Arsenal must still be smarting somewhat.

You would never rule out Kane scoring, even when out of form, but early chances may not flow for Tottenham in this one.

Expect Villa to come and make things tough for Tottenham early on and try to prey on their fragile confidence.

Michail Antonio (West Ham vs Brentford)

Michail Antonio was back to doing what he does best last week - pinching goals and winning games for West Ham.

The Hammers needed a last-gasp winner from Antonio to beat Leeds, and the Jamaican was only too happy to oblige.

He will be confident of more goals this week too when Brentford visit the London Stadium. The Bees have started their first Premier League season well, although they certainly don't seem set on defending their way to safety.

Brentford have been brilliantly entertaining at times, and playing expansive entertaining soccer is not really conducive to a 'keep it tight' mentality.

That has to put Antonio firmly in the frame for the Six Shooter.

Mo Salah (Liverpool vs Man City)

There are lots of good reason to back Mo Salah in the Six Shooter. Firstly, Liverpool have scored before half-time in each of their last four matches.

In addition, the Anfield crowd can really help inspire fast starts for the home side in big matches, and this is as big as they come for Liverpool right now.

Salah takes penalties, and he is bang in form right now. He is also Mo Salah, and that alone should be reason enough.

However, there is also a very good reason not too back him in the Six Shooter - and that is Man City.

Pep Guardiola's men are likely to be reeling after a Champions League humbling in midweek, and last week they proved how tough they can be to break down while earning a 1-0 win at Chelsea.

Honestly, it feels like a flip of a coin, but the Egyptian is most certainly in the running.

Jamie Vardy (Crystal Palace vs Leicester)

Jamie Vardy had a very eventful game last week as he scored three of the four goals in Leicester's 2-2 draw with Burnley.

His 37th-minute strike (in the right end) was enough to win the Six Shooter last time, and he will be backing himself for more joy in front of goal at Selhurst Park too.

However, you need to take into account that Crystal Palace have only conceded one goal at home this season, and that came in second-half stoppage time.

Don't rule Vardy out, but it would be a brave punter to back him this week.

None of the six to score

Of course, there is a chance that none of the six score, right? Stranger things have happened.

The fact they all played some form or European soccer during the week may see them a little leggy.

If that's what you're backing, we have you covered too.

Planet Sport tip: Romelu Lukaku

Forgive us, Southampton fans, but it feels like the Saints might just be ripe for a hammering, and Chelsea could fill their boots this weekend.

If they do, you'd expect Romelu Lukaku to be at the very front of the queue for goals.
