Time to rejoice as the Premier League returns and Jones Knows is in the chair. He fancies Taiwo Awoniyi to score on Monday Night Football.

I'm still trying to work Burnley out, which makes this prediction lark very tough. Have they regressed over the summer? Or is Vincent Kompany slowing building his new-look squad up to the rigours of Premier League football? I wouldn't be surprised by a home win, draw or away win here, so I'm not much to help to you on that front.

What is clear is that Taiwo Awoniyi is becoming the real deal at Nottingham Forest. Improving players is what Steve Cooper is all about. And what will take the manager to a top-six job in time, or perhaps, the England role if he fancied it.

Awoniyi has picked up from where he left off last season, scoring in seven consecutive games and since the start of May, the Forest striker has even outscored Erling Haaland in the Premier League, despite playing a game fewer. In a really tricky betting heat, keep it simple and back him to score first at 4/1 with Sky Bet.
