In Robin van Persie's absence, Wayne Rooney has stepped up and has been in fine goalscoring form 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 is 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 David Moyes, a trip to the Stadium of Light has been fruitful for the reigning champions in recent years.
The Red Devils have claimed maximum points in their last five matches against Sunderland, and you'd have to go back to March 1997 for the last time a Black Cats side claimed a win over thier illustrious opposition. What's more, Sunderland have only found the net once in their last seven games against the Old Trafford side.
These statistics suggest it's a tailor-made game for Moyes to boost confidence amongst the fans and that's 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).
