Premier League Big Six betting accumulator: PL internationals all to score?

It’s no secret that the Premier League is the best league in the world. The depth of quality, tactical diversity and titanic finances put the English top flight ahead of any competition. Players from the Premier League’s ‘Big Six’ litter the top international sides.

In this article, we’ll take a look at a player from each of these sides we fancy to score for their country.

Arsenal: Bukayo Saka to score first vs Brazil – 7/1

Bukayo Saka has had an exceptional 2023/24. In all competitions, the 22-year-old has 16 goals and 13 assists already for the Gunners.

Saka has turned up against the big boys too. He has scored or assisted against all of the ‘Big Six'.

Saka has nailed down the right flank for England under Gareth Southgate and will play against arguably the heftiest of all international heavyweights, Brazil, in Saturday’s friendly. After a stellar performance against France at the 2022 World Cup, Saka will want to show off his talent to the Samba stars.

Chelsea: Cole Palmer to score last vs Brazil – 8/1

Chelsea’s transfer policy in recent years has rightly come in for heavy criticism. But the Blues do deserve credit for taking the plunge on Cole Palmer.

Palmer is Chelsea’s top scorer on 11 Premier League goals. He has been Chelsea’s best player this season, and has quickly become a leader at Stamford Bridge, taking responsibility in all phases of play and setting an example for his teammates.

His performances have attracted the attention of Gareth Southgate. Palmer won’t be the first name on the teamsheet, but could make a cameo against Brazil. And with how quickly Palmer has adapted to being a Premier League regular, who’s to say he won’t take the international stage quickly too?

Liverpool: Cody Gakpo to score two or more vs Scotland – 12/1

Despite averaging a solid 0.58 goals and assists per 90 minutes in a Liverpool shirt, Cody Gakpo has come under criticism in recent weeks.

Former Red Jamie Carragher hung the Dutchman out to dry on Twitter after Liverpool’s loss to arch-rivals Manchester United in the FA Cup, saying “Gakpo plays like the game is in slow motion.”

Harsh words. Especially given that Liverpool scored three goals – which should be enough to win any game.

The international break comes at a good time for Gakpo. He has always thrived wearing Oranje. In European qualifying, he averaged a goal per game, and his performances at the 2022 World Cup were a big part of convincing Liverpool to buy him in January last year. 

The game against Scotland is a great opportunity for Gakpo to prove his doubters wrong.

Manchester City: Bernardo Silva to score or assist vs Sweden – 1/1

Bernardo Silva is a true footballing Swiss Army knife. The diminutive Portuguese is intelligent and technical enough to play all over the pitch, a superb mentality that allows him to show up when it matters most, and with a lung-busting engine to match. 

For Portugal, Silva has often played deeper and orchestrated. But this has not stopped him from chipping in with goals, with three in EURO 2024 qualification, as well as three assists.

Manchester United: Rasmus Højlund to score first vs Switzerland 11/2

Denmark vs Switzerland is a clash between two of Europe’s perennial ‘dark horses’. One of its biggest stars will be Ramus Højlund.

The 21-year-old has netted a remarkable four Premier League openers in 2024, despite just five appearances.

Højlund has a strong record for his country to, and we back him to net the opener here.

Spurs: Richarlison to score first vs England – 9/1

Returning to England vs Brazil, Richarlison has the opportunity to wind an awful lot of people up (something he loves to do) with an opener under the lights at Wembley.

Richarlison has had vastly improved fortunes in a Spurs shirt this season, with ten goals and three assists in 17 Premier League starts. He has always stepped up for Brazil, so do not bet against the plucky striker from netting the opening goal.

 

The accumulated odds for these six bets comes to 33,264/1.
