There are two English Premier League matches taking place on Sunday and we take a look at each of them from a betting angle.
A reminder that English Premier League Long-Term Markets are constantly updated and at the moment you can get 5/8 about Arsenal winning the Title with Manchester City next in the betting at 7/4. There are plenty of other markets including team to finish in the bottom half, team to finish last and of course the Top Goal Scorer which looks no contest at this stage with Haaland trading as a 1/20 favourite.
Leeds United v Manchester United – Click here to bet
It is quite unusual to see two teams playing each other in the League just days apart, but these sides met on Wednesday night at Manchester United and the game finished 2-2. That left Leeds 16th on the log and without a win in their last 8 matches. That being said, it was a good result for them as Manchester United were trading at 11/20 to win the game in 90 minutes.
Leeds have only won 1 of their last 5 home matches and looking at their goal stats at home 60% of their matches have delivered profits for over 2.5 goal backers.
Manchester United are 3rd on the table, but could have done without dropping those 2 points against Leeds on Wednesday night and they have now only won 1 of their last 4 matches in the League. Goals have tended to flow in Manchester United games and both teams have found the net in their last 5 games and in 5 of their last 6 matches, over 2.5 goal backers would have been in the pay-out queue.
United have won 5 out of 11 matches on the road this season and their games away from Old Trafford have averaged 3.2 goals each with 6 of the 11 matches reaching the 3 goal mark.
This fixture finished 4-2 to Manchester United last season and the last 3 matches between these sides have all had at least 4 goals in them.
We backed over 3.5 goals in midweek and I am not going to change strategy here and will go in again at a price of 15/10.
Suggested Bet: Over 3.5 goals at 15/10

Manchester City v Aston Villa – Click here to bet
Manchester City are currently 2nd on the table, but coming off a 1-0 away loss at Tottenham and they certainly have plenty of problems off the field as well. Their home form remains top draw though with just one defeat in 11 matches to go with their 9 victories and looking at goal stats when Manchester City host opposition, 10 of the 11 matches would have delivered profits for over 2.5 goal backers with an average of 4.5 goals per game.
Aston Villa are currently 11th on the log and last time out were beaten 4-2 at home by Leicester. Prior to that they had strung an unbeaten run together which had seen them take 10 points out of a possible 12. They have won 3 times on the road in 10 attempts this season and looking at Villa goal stats on their travels 50% of their matches averaged the 3 goal mark.
These sides played to a 1-1 draw at Aston Villa earlier in the season, Manchester City won home and away, 3-2 and 2-1 last season.
Manchester City are predictably short here at 1/4, but I actually fancy Aston Villa will push them hard as they have done in their last 3 meetings and I am going to back Aston Villa to get on the score sheet while at the same time expecting City to find the back of the net.
Suggested Bet: Both teams to score, YES, at 21/20
