Our Going For Goals team are back with a treble covering the Premier League and League Two this weekend.

Swansea and Michu can help bag us a winner

Everton v Swansea (BC)

Here's a fact you'll hear and read several times this week, but one worth repeating for the benefit of this feature: Everton have become the first side in Premier League history to both score and concede in 16 consecutive games.

Throw in the fact that even League Two outfit Cheltenham Town managed one against a strong Everton side last Monday, and it's clear that the hosts can be expected to offer chances to Swansea.

And the Swans - or more specifically Michu - just gobble up chances. A pair against Chelsea followed a pair against Arsenal and Everton's record may be further extended.

Aston Villa v Southampton (AS)

You have to fancy goals in this one. It's been clear on the eye that these two struggle to defend and the stats underline that view.

Villa have conceded 21 goals in their last six, including three at League Two Bradford, while Saints have let in 24 in nine away league games thus far.

With in-form strikers also on the pitch - Andreas Weimann and Rickie Lambert - expect both sides to find the target.

Plymouth v Morecambe (NH)

Plymouth have been a regular part of our Going for Goals selection - helping us earn a profit in the 2-1 defeat at Bristol Rovers a couple of weeks ago - and they are included again on Saturday.

John Sheridan takes charge of the Pilgrims for the first time against Morecambe and his new side have been winners in the both teams to score market in five of their previous seven games.

Morecambe could do with victory to pull further clear of the relegation zone and they have also been successful in the both teams to score market with six of their last eight matches doing the business.
