Premier League Accumulator: Goals the order of the day in 4/1 double

There is a Premier League double-header to look forward to on Sunday with Manchester powerhouses City and United both in action, and we have a double for bettors to consider.

Just four days on from sharing the spoils in a thrilling 2-2 draw at Old Trafford, Leeds and Manchester United go at it again at 14:00, this time with Elland Road being the scene of their showdown. 

The second match on a super Sunday takes us to the Etihad, where title chasers Manchester City entertain Aston Villa at 16:30, and the Citizens can't afford another slip-up in their pursuit of league leaders Arsenal. 

We have had an in-depth look at both matches and selected a double which pays just over 4/1.

Sunday’s double:

Both teams to score & over 2.5 goals in Leeds v Manchester United @ 10/11 

Manchester City to win & both teams to score @ 7/4 

Odds were correct at time of writing and are subject to change.

Quick turnaround could yield the same result

Odds Leeds 11/4, Draw 14/5, Man Utd 10/11

Leeds and Manchester United put on a show at Old Trafford on Wednesday as their rescheduled Premier League meeting ended in a 2-2 draw, and a similarly lively contest can be expected in the return fixture at Elland Road. 

In what was their first match since the sacking of Jesse Marsch, Leeds performed with plenty of credit at Old Trafford, where impressive Italian youngster Wilfried Gnonto took just a minute to put the visitors ahead. 

Things were looking rosy for Leeds when they doubled their advantage just after half-time thanks to Raphael Varane's own goal but, as may have been expected, that sparked United into life. 

Goals from the red-hot Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho spared their blushes and given United won the shot count 24-8, a point was probably the least of what they deserved. 

However, Erik ten Hag's side were carved wide open at times and they face a tougher test in West Yorkshire, where only Arsenal, City and Fulham have won from the 10 teams that have tried this season. 

Rashford has 12 goals in his last 14 appearances in all competitions for United and at 13/10 to score at any time will rightly attract plenty of support. 

But backing both teams to score & over 2.5 goals in this contest is what makes most appeal at 10/11

The absences of Casemiro and Christian Eriksen left United vulnerable in midfield and those two will be missing again with the Brazilian suspended and Eriksen sidelined with an ankle injury. 

That 2-2 draw with Leeds was United’s fifth consecutive Premier League match in which both teams had scored, while seven of their last eight away league games have also seen the net bulge at both ends. 

Leeds, meanwhile, have managed only two clean sheets in their last 14 league encounters, so the Red Devils' attacking stars ought to make their presence felt. 

Six of the hosts' last eight games have seen both teams score and at least three goals netted and that trend can continue against United, whose last two away trips have seen them draw 1-1 at Crystal Palace and lose 3-2 at Arsenal.

Odds Man City 1/4, Draw 11/2, Aston Villa 10/1

Manchester City were unable to capitalise on Arsenal's slip-up at Everton last Saturday as they limped to a 1-0 defeat of their own at Tottenham on Sunday, but that setback should ensure the Citizens are fired-up for the visit of Aston Villa. 

Pep Guardiola has been criticised for some strange team selections of late - Kevin De Bruyne was on the bench at Spurs - but he is unlikely to take too many risks against Villa given they still trail Arsenal, who have a game in hand, by five points in the title race. 

City can sometimes be vulnerable against teams blessed with pace on the counter-attack, highlighted by last weekend's loss at Spurs, as well as the home defeat to Brentford earlier in the season. 

That should give Villa, who have shown significant improvement since the appointment of Unai Emery, some hope but their efforts may ultimately be in vain. 

The Citizens respond well to disappointing results. That 2-1 loss at home to Brentford was followed by a 3-1 win at Leeds, while their Manchester derby defeat in January was responded to by a 4-2 win at home to Spurs. 

In fact, City have not dropped points in back-to-back league games since 2020 so odds of 1/4 about a home win look a pretty safe bet. 

However, bettors can get more bang for their buck by backing City to win but Villa to net a consolation goal at 7/4

City have won nine of their 11 home league games this season, netting a total of 38 goals, but they have conceded 12 and managed only four clean sheets in that period. 

Three of those shutouts have come against Bournemouth, Nottingham Forest and Southampton so Villa, who have scored in each of their last eight league outings, should fancy their goalscoring prospects. 

Villa did hold City to a 1-1 draw on home soil earlier in the season but repeating the feat at the Etihad, where they were beaten 3-2 on a dramatic final-day last term, looks beyond them. 

Emery's men were beaten 4-2 at home to Leicester last time out, where their defensive deficiencies were brutally exposed, and the presence of 25-goal striker Erling Haaland and co means more damage is likely. 

Haaland is 1/2 to add to his tally this weekend but backing City to win & both teams to score is where the value lies. Interestingly, that selection has landed in five of the last seven meetings between this pair.
