The Irish bookmakers are offering a standout price of 4/1 on the 27-year-old getting his name on the scoresheet when Manhcester United travel to the Stadium of Light on SaturdayAfter a credible midweek draw away to Shakhtar Donetsk, David Moyes will be looking to get Manchester United's Premier League campaign back on track when he takes his side to the Stadium of Light.
In Robin van Persie's absence, Wayne Rooney has stepped up and has been in fine goalscoring touch of late, finding the net five times in as many games.
Now Paddy Power are offering new customers the chance to take advantage of a special 4/1 anytime goalscorer price for Saturday evening's game. That's an industry best price by some way, with the next best odds available on the same bet being 13/10 (2.30). Full terms and conditions can be found here.
But that's not all - existing Paddy Power customers will be able to make the most of the Money Back Special which is available for this match that also involved the England international.
If Rooney scores the last goal of the match, Paddy Power will refund all losing first goalscorer, last goalscorer, correct score and scorecast singles on the match.
After Paolo Di Canio's departure from Sunderland, it's caretaker boss Kevin Ball who has been entrusted with overseeing first-team affairs until a permanent replacement has been found. History suggests that Ball has an uphill battle ahead of him in this game, though.
Despite United having somewhat of a wobble in the Premier League under the stewardship of Moyes, a trip to the Stadium of Light has been fruitful for the reigning champions in recent years.
United have claimed maximum points in their last five matches against Sunderland - in fact, you'd have to go back to March 1997 for the last time that a Black Cats side claimed a win over their illustrious opposition. What's more, Sunderland have only found the net once in their last seven games against this opposition.
These statistics suggest that this should be a tailor-made game for Moyes to boost confidence amongst the fans and that is reflected in the fact United are available at just 8/13 (1.62) to win the match, Sunderland are available at 9/2 (5.50) with the draw priced at 3/1 (4.0).
