Sunderland - Manchester United Betting Preview: Why backing goals at both ends can prove profitable

Both sides have been struggling in recent weeks and our tipster expects action aplenty when David Moyes's men take on the Black Cats at Stadium of Light on Saturday night
Manchester United have won just one of their last five Premier League matches and David Moyes's men will be desperate to claim all three points when they take on Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Saturday evening.

Despite their indifferent form, the visitors are chalked up as warm favourites to win, with Paddy Power offering just 8/13 (1.62) on an away victory here.

Sunderland, too, will be hoping to kickstart their season, having garnered just one point from their opening six Premier League games.

The Black Cats are set to remain under the stewardship of caretaker boss Kevin Ball for this game and can be backed at a massive 9/2 (5.50) with Paddy Power to enjoy a much-needed victory on Saturday. The draw is available at 3/1 (4.0) with the same firm.

United striker Wayne Rooney missed out in midweek as the Red Devils were held to a 1-1 draw against Shaktar Donetsk in the Champions League but the 27-year-old striker is likely to return to the fold for the trip to the Stadium of Light.

Paddy Power are offering an incredible offer to mark Rooney's return and new customers can back the England striker at an enormous 4/1 (5.0) to score at any time on Saturday evening. The offer allows a maximum stake of £10 and is sure to prove extremely popular with punters given the supremely generous odds on offer.

It is worth noting that Rooney has scored an impressive five goals in just six appearances for Moyes's men already this season and the 4/1 (5.0) quote available to new Paddy Power customers simply cannot be ignored.

The primary concern for Manchester United ahead of the trip to Sunderland will surely be their defensive deficiencies. The Red Devils side have conceded in four of their last five matches in all competitions and, with the Black Cats likely to be fired up, it is easy to anticipate goals at both ends.

With that in mind, punters are advised to snap up the generous 4/5 (1.80) quote from Paddy Power for both teams to score at the Stadium of Light on Saturday evening.
