We have a tie at the top of the likely goalscorers table ahead of Gameweek 29. Both Liverpool's Mo Salah (£12.8m) and Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m) are projected as having a 62.1% chance of finding the net against Bournemouth and West Ham respectively. Liverpool's match against the Cherries taking place at Anfield suits Salah, with the Egyptian having scored 13 of his 15 Premier League goals this season at home. He also netted against Eddie Howe's side in the return fixture at the Vitality Stadium. Aubameyang looks to be getting back to his destructive best with three goals in his last two league games and it's no surprise to see him high up this list with West Ham having conceded nine goals in their last three away Premier League matches.

Not only does a tie make up the top two most likely goalscorers for Gameweek 29, but both third and fourth on the list cannot be separated. Another Liverpool midfielder in Sadio Mane (£12.4m) makes the cut, with the Senegalese star having netted in his last league game at Anfield, his 13th league goal of the campaign. He is joined somewhat surprisingly by Leicester forward Kelechi Iheanacho (£5.7m), who could be afforded a second successive start by Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers depending on the status of Jamie Vardy's calf injury. Iheanacho only has three Premier League goals this season but should he start in Gameweek 29 the algorithm fancies his chances of scoring against an Aston Villa side with the worst defence in the division. Both Mane and Iheanacho are afforded a 55.6% chance of scoring in Gameweek 29.
