Goal Rush: 9th September

Check out who’s hot and who’s not when it comes to both teams scoring

Manchester United have yet to concede a goal this season, can they keep a clean sheet on their visit to Stoke?  There should be goals from both teams when Fulham host Cardiff in the Championship and when Shrewsbury take on Wigan in League One.

Who’s Hot:

3 - Everton v Tottenham

Six of the last ten league encounters between Everton and Tottenham had both teams score.  They had a 1-1 draw at Goodison last season before Spurs won 3-2 in the reverse.

Everton have scored in all but one of their seven competitive matches this term. They played their last three on the road drawing 1-1 with Man City and Hajduk Split, before a 2-0 loss at Chelsea.

After a 2-0 win over 10-man Newcastle in their opening game, Tottenham lost 2-1 to Chelsea and were held to a 1-1 draw with Burnley.

9 - Fulham v Cardiff

Ten of the last eleven meetings between these two saw both teams find the net. Both Championship meetings last season finished 2-2.

Fulham have leaked goals in their last four home matches.  They won 2-0 visiting Ipswich in their most recent game.

Cardiff are on five straight league wins, winning their last two 2-1 over both Wolves and QPR.

19 - Bristol Rovers v Walsall

Their last four league encounters had both teams score, three of the games had four or more goals.

In their last four league matches Bristol Rovers have scored eight goals and conceded ten.

Walsall are unbeaten in their last four league matches, scoring eight goals and conceding six.

20 - Charlton v Southend

Four of their last six encounters had both teams score. They drew 1-1 at Southend and Charlton won 2-1 at home in League One last season.
