Weekend review: This goalscoring accumulator could have landed you a small fortune

Leroy Sane, Danny Welbeck and Eric Choupo-Moting were amongst the goals on Saturday

Well then, as ever, the Premier League was unpredictable across the board over the weekend.

Manchester City demolished Liverpool after Sadio Mane’s controversial red card ended the chances of what looked like a pretty even contest.

City, as a result, have been shortened from 7/5 to 5/4 to win the Premier League off the back of that 5-0 rout after damaging one of their main rivals’ hopes.

But that’s not where the big money lies.

The weekend’s action saw an eclectic range of goalscorers, but a few of them really stole the headlines.

Harry Kane got off the mark for the season, as he always does, as soon as August came to a close with two in Tottenham’s 3-0 win over Everton.

But we want to focus on the more unlikely double acts, namely Leroy Sane, Danny Welbeck and Eric Choupo-Moting.

Sane came off the bench to score twice

Sane was introduced as a substitute late on against Liverpool and scored two quick-fire goals, whilst Welbeck was similarly effective in front of goal for Arsenal against Bournemouth.

And the big story of the weekend was Choupo-Moting – who has never cost a single penny in transfer fees in his career – announcing himself to the Premier League by pegging back Manchester United twice.

Choupo-Moting was released by Schalke at the end of last season after just scoring three goals in all competitions, one of which was a penalty.

But he was clinical in front of goal in the 2-2 draw with the Red Devils to earn the Potters a point.

And if you had foreseen Sane (16/1), Welbeck (5/1) and Choupo-Moting (25/1) all scoring twice you’d be laughing all the way to the bank.

That’s because an accumulator of the trio each bagging braces was a whopping 2650/1 with Sun Bets.

Stick £10 on that and you’re talking about some serious money.

Will either of the three replicate their goalscoring antics this weekend? Or will it be a flash in the pan?
