Dominic Solanke Odds: Striker 7/2 to score three or more goals against Sheffield United and Luton

We've priced up Dominic Solanke at 7/2 to score three or more goals in Bournemouth's upcoming Premier League fixtures against Sheffield United and Luton Town.

The Cherries frontman is enjoying his most prolific Premier League campaign to date with a return of 14 goals in 26 appearances and Solanke has evolved into an integral figure in Andoni Iraola's plans.

Bournemouth have blown hot and cold under the Basque tactician but they returned to winning ways with victory over Burnley last weekend and their attentions now turn to two favourable home fixtures.

Iraola's outfit are 1/3 to secure all three points when Sheffield United visit the Dorset coast on Saturday and the Cherries are also odds-on favourites for another win when Luton travel to the Vitality Stadium on Wednesday.

bet365's Steve Freeth said: "You can forget the likes of Haaland, Salah and Watkins, it's all about Dominic Solanke over the next few days as he gears up to face both Sheffield United and Luton with many hoping, including the Fantasy Football family, that he fills his boots against two of the leakiest defences around."

Solanke may have blanked in the reverse meeting at Bramall Lane but the forward will be relishing the opportunity to test a Sheffield United defence that have conceded an astonishing 72 goals in 27 league matches.

The Blades' defensive vulnerabilities were exposed again by Arsenal, with Mikel Arteta's side plundering in six goals without really having to shift out of second gear. They conceded five to both Aston Villa and Brighton in their two previous home matches and Chris Wilder seemingly doesn't have the answer to plug their leaky backline.

While Luton have made a better fist of Premier League survival, the Hatters have been guilty of conceding a flurry of goals in recent outings.

Lucas Digne's late winner for Aston Villa was the 22nd goal they had conceded in their last six fixtures in all competitions and Rob Edwards must strike a balance between their attacking threat and defensive solidity if Luton are to survive.

With that said, Luton's frailties bode well if you're backing Solanke to find the back of the net.

Conspicuously absent from the FA Cup defeat to Leicester City, Solanke was a doubt for Bournemouth's encounter with Burnley due to a knee issue but the forward featured in 89 minutes of action at Turf Moor.

After Solanke emerged from the contest unscathed, Iraola said: "I think he was missing some sharpness, because he hasn't trained. When you miss three or four days of training during the week, probably you don't feel so sharp. He made a good effort and I think they both (Enes Unal) contributed.”

11 points clear of the relegation zone, Bournemouth will be looking to finish strongly and consolidate an impressive debut season for Iraola in England's top flight.

Solanke's contributions have been vital to a number of Bournemouth's wins, including a superb hat-trick against Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.

Only Erling Haaland, Ollie Watkins and Mohamed Salah have scored more goals than Solanke this campaign and the former Liverpool forward is now 8/11 to score 20 or more Premier League goals by the end of the season.

The 26-year-old is also 10/1 in our Top Goalscorer Without Erling Haaland market, with competition intensifying following Salah's injury lay-off and Watkins' sustained form.
