Free-scoring Manchester clubs 16/1 to hit double figures against Crystal Palace

Roy Hodgson's men have yet to win a Premier League game this season but can the Eagles restrict two in-form title contenders on the road?

Crystal Palace are currently in the unenviable situation of having had two more managers than they have Premier League points or indeed, top flight goals this season.

Life doesn't get much easier for newly appointed Roy Hodgson though, as he takes the Eagles to Manchester twice in the space of a week, but how many goals will the rampant pair score combined?

dabblebet have priced the market up and make it 16/1 (17.0) that Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho's respective sides rack up 10 or more goals in their two matches against Palace.

The two teams managed just that in their most recent outings as City plundered six against Watford and United notched four against Everton at Old Trafford. Such an eye-catching quote could well prove popular in the run up to Saturday's trip to the Etihad for the South London club.

Over 3.5 goals is available at just 1/7 (1.14), but the option to back over 5.5 goals combined at 11/10 (2.10) is also a tempting option for those who believe Palace will be powerless to stop the likes of Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus and Romelu Lukaku from building on their impressive goal tallies thus far.

5/1 (6.0) is available at over 7.5 goals and with United having scored four goals on three seperate occasions already this term, that could also be a potential wager for punters who can see Hodgson's men suffering a similar fate as West Ham did on the opening weekend of the campaign.

Worrying for the rest of the Premier League, City's attacking options really seem to be clicking into action after a stuttering start with Aguero and Jesus beginning to form what would undoubtedly be the deadliest strike partnership in the division.

With 14 unanswered goals in their previous three matches in all competitions, few will be backing against Guardiola's men when they take on Palace and dabblebet go just 1/7 (1.14) that the hosts come out on top. With Manchester United likely to be a similar price the following weekend, these markets offer a viable alternative for bettors who want to invest in Palace struggling to contain the two leading title candidates.

Unlike their first season under Mourinho, United have become adept at plundering late goals against their opponents and that could be the key to these markets paying out. The Red Devils have netted nine times (56.2%) of their Premier League tally in the final 15 minutes of matches.

Considering the way Palace have struggled to contain Huddersfield, Swansea and Southampton in recent weeks, this is a huge step up in quality against high-flying teams showing no mercy in the final third.

With the Manchester clubs prohibitively priced for the upcoming games against Crystal Palace, these goal tallies are a great option for punters who believe it could be about to go from bad to worse for Roy Hogdson and his new side.
