Money back on Manchester City v Manchester United if Robin van Persie scores anytime

Paddy Power will refund losing bets on certain markets including first goalscorer and correct score if Manchester United's leading goal scorer finds the net on Sunday
Irish bookmakers Paddy Power are famous for their money back specials which have become a great way for punters to ensure their cash is returned if if their bet losses on the big match.

Matches don't come much bigger than this Sunday's meeting between the Premier League's top two clubs. Manchester City host Manchester United in a match that could be an early indication of which side of the city this season's title could end up on.

Roberto Mancini's side are made firm favourites for the match, priced at 5/4 (2.25) by Paddy Power. An away win for Sir Alex Ferguson's side is available at 21/10 (3.10) while a draw is a 12/5 (3.40) shot.

But for those who are looking for a little something extra this Sunday, Paddy Power's latest offer could be just the thing.

After giving customers the opportunity to vote on which special they would offer, the poll results showed a clear winner.

Punters voted in their masses and Paddy Power will refund losing first/last goalscorer, correct score and scorecast bets if Robin van Persie scores anytime in the match.

The Netherlands international has continued his impressive form since his move from Arsenal in the summer and has fired a total of 10 Premier League goals so far, leaving him level with Demba Ba, Michu and Luis Suarez in the hunt for the top scorer award ahead of this weekend's fixtures.

Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero look set to lead the Manchester City line and both are available at 11/2 (6.50) to break the deadlock on Sunday afternoon.

Mario Balotelli is available at 7/1 (8.0) to be the first name on the score sheet while Wayne Rooney is the same price to open the scoring for Sir Alex Ferguson's side.

Those expecting late drama could be tempted by Edin Dzeko to score the final goal at 13/2 (7.50) or even Javier Hernandez who is priced at 8/1 (9.0), both players have become specialists at coming off the bench and scoring late goals for their respective sides.

If you were to back any of these players in either the first or last goalscorer market and Robin van Persie finds the net then Paddy Power will refund your bet, up to a maximum of £50. This offer is open to new and existing customers so don't miss out.

If you don't have a Paddy Power account then you can also take advantage of up to £250 in free bets when you open your account through
