Man Utd v Everton Odds: Wayne Rooney well backed to score against his former club

The live kick-off from the Premier League on Sunday afternoon comes from Old Trafford as league leaders Manchester United take on Everton. United are looking to strengthen their position at the top of the table and extend a formidable record against the Toffees on home soil, while David Moyes' team are again bidding to upset the odds against the Reds.

Everton stunned United at Goodison Park on the opening day of the season as a Marouane Fellaini goal handed them a 1-0 win. They are 4/1 to win at Old Trafford this weekend, although it is United who go in as 4/6 odds on favourites with PaddyPower, who are offering to refund all losing first scorer, last scorer, correct score and scorecast single bets on the match if Wayne Rooney scores last.

Rooney has been in exceptional form of late and he could prove to be a thorn in the side of his former club. The England striker, who scored for his country against Brazil in mid-week, has notched eight goals in his last seven Premier League appearances and he has now set up or scored a total of 17 goals in his last 17 top-flight outings. He is 4/1 to be first goalscorer this weekend and he is 9/5 to score anytime in a United win.

That first goal of the match could well be an early one as Everton have conceded the highest percentage of goals in the opening 15 minutes of games in the division this season (30%). Furthermore, United's last five matches have seen five goals scored in the opening 10 minutes and PaddyPower bookmakers go 3/1 for a goal to be scored between 0-10 minutes on Sunday.

United have made a habit of getting that opening goal after starting the season seemingly intent on rescuing points from behind. Sir Alex Ferguson's team will be hoping that they can hold on to a lead against Everton this time though as they threw away a 4-2 lead to draw 4-4 in this corresponding Man Utd v Everton fixture last season.

That result precipitated their downfall in the race for the title but they can take great confidence from their form this season. United are unbeaten in their last 13 in the Premier League and they have won 11 of their 12 league games at Old Trafford this term, scoring 32 goals in the process.

Furthermore, they have won 15 and lost none of 19 league fixtures at home against Everton and they will fancy their chances of extending that run this weekend. David Moyes team have only lost one of their last 13 in the league themselves but the way they conceded three goals in a 3-3 draw against lowly Aston Villa last Saturday will be a worry.

Marouane Fellaini had to rescue them with two goals against Villa, including an injury time equaliser, and he is 9/1 to be last goalscorer after notching two goals in his last two appearances against United. However, Everton are winless at Old Trafford since 1992 and that run could be extended, with paddypower going 13/2 that United win 2-1.
