Edin Dzeko is 4/1 with Ladbrokes to outscore Wayne Rooney in the Premier League this season.
Rooney is 1/6 to add to his current tally of two to outscore Dzeko with 10/1 the price that the two strikers end up on the same goal count.
Should he translate his excellent Bundesliga scoring record to the Premiership then he could easily score 8 goals or more which is a 9/2 shot.
It’s 6/4 he manages between 5 and 7 and it’s 10/1 he either fails to score or only nets once.
His first goal is most likely to come on his debut against Wolves which is an even money chance, it’s 4/1 he finds the net for the first time at Villa Park and 16/1 he breaks his duck when City visit Old Trafford.
The same price applies should he fail to score at any point in the league this season.
Manchester City are currently the 7/1 third favourites to win the title behind Manchester United (4/6) and Arsenal (4/1).
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Dzeko’s goal scoring record for Wolfsburg speaks for itself and he could set the Premiership alight. He will become an instant City legend if his first goal is the winner at Old Trafford.”
