Player to watch – Viktor Gyokeres

Viktor Gyokeres' move from Championship side Coventry to Sporting Lisbon has proven to be a major success. The Swedish international has been banging in the goals for fun, making the step up to top flight football with ease.

Sporting's Swedish striker has settled well

With 16 goals in 19 starts in the Primeira Liga, it's going to be tough for any other player to stop Gyokeres from claiming the Golden Boot award in Portugal this season. We're backing the former Brighton youngster to impress once again this weekend away at Moreirense.
