The latest Aston Villa Man City, Man Utd West Brom odds as punters pile on the Manchester double in the betting at a handy price of 11/10 with Paddy Power.

Manchester City and Manchester United look to catch up to the league leaders as the respective 4/7 and 3/10 favourites look to pick up wins against Aston Villa and West Brom

In the afternoon kickoffs, both Manchester sides will be looking to close down the gap to Arsenal with Manchester City knowing that a win could potentially put them level with The Gunners.

Having destroyed Manchester United and Wigan in the last two games, it could be anyone’s guess as to who will feature in the first 11 against Villa on Saturday afternoon.

Many of the new signings such as Jesus Navas and Stevan Jovetic both scored impressive goals against Wigan putting pressure on the likes of Samir Nasri and Edin Dzeko whilst the imperious form of Yaya Toure has kept the likes of James Milner out of the City squad.

The Villa will be going into their clash looking to find another potential goal source after they lost top goalscorer Christian Benteke to a hip injury that will keep him out for the next 6 weeks.

It means that Paul Lambert will need to hope that new signings such as Libor Kozak and Nicklas Helenius will be able to step up and score as often as what Benteke has done so far in 2013.

Meanwhile, Manchester United will return to Old Trafford looking into give a much better performance than the one the world saw in the Manchester derby last Sunday.

United will likely field a mix of the two teams that lined up over the past week with Javier Hernandez set to appear alongside Wayne Rooney up front with Robin Van Persie still a slight doubt for Saturday’s clash.

It could also see a possible return to the starting line-up for either Jonny Evans or Chris Smalling who both put in strong performances against Liverpool in place of either Rio Ferdinand or Nemanja Vidic.

West Brom will be looking to try and pick themselves up after losing on penalties to Arsenal in the league cup on Wednesday night as they face a tough trip up north.

The Baggies could see Irish striker Shane Long finally return to the line-up having struggled with a couple of injuries over the last month or two meanwhile the likes of Chris Brunt and Zoltan Gera are also likely to return after being rested on Wednesday night.

With several of the title contenders all having potentially tricky ties, it will be up to them to show their strength and resilience to grind out results and keep gaining momentum in the title race.
