Goal Rush: 5th May

Both Leicester and West Ham have been leaking plenty of goals so expect both teams to find the net when they meet at the King Power Stadium. In League One Wigan only need a point to claim the title and could do it cleanly against a Doncaster side lacking an attacking edge. Check out who’s hot and who’s not in our Goal Rush competition this weekend.

Who’s Hot:

3 - Leicester v West Ham

Eight of the last ten meetings between Leicester and West Ham had both teams score, including the reverse fixture this season which finished 1-1.

No team have conceded more goals than West Ham in the Premier League this season, they've leaked 67 and 42 of them were on the road.

14 - Rotherham United v Blackpool

Rotherham won 2-1 in the reverse fixture this season, before that they last met in the Championship in the 2014-2015 season and drew both meetings 1-1.
