Red-hot Rooney to earn refunds with Man Utd goal against Liverpool

Wayne Rooney is 4/1 favourite to notch first against Liverpool on Saturday, and Ladbrokes look to be taking a big chance in offering punters refunds on losing first goalscorer bets if the former Everton forward scores at any time.

Rooney bagged a brace in his last Premier League outing, firing home two penalties against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, and his man-of-the-match display in that game showed he could be nearing a return to his best form.

His link-up play with a varying array of forwards was exemplary throughout the game, and with Javier Hernandez returning to scoring form and Danny Welbeck looking dangerous for United, a wide array of first goalscorer options are available for the Liverpool clash.

Hernandez and Welbeck are both 5/1 to net first, while Steven Gerrard, with three in his last five against the Red Devils, is a lengthy 10/1 to open the scoring for the visitors.

Luis Suarez is likely to make his first start since his suspension, and is 7/1 for the opener.
