PP - Sturridge 5/1 to score any time

Liverpool take on Newcastle in the late game on Saturday and are 13/10 to win a fixture they have not lost in five of out seven Barclays Premier League meetings.
The sides drew 1-1 at Anfield earlier in the season and Paddy Power make it 11/2 that this scoreline is repeated on Saturday.
Brendan Rodgers praised his side's battling qualities after last weekend's 2-2 draw with Chelsea where Luis Suarez got a 97th-minute equaliser after super-sub Daniel Sturridge made it 1-1 seven minutes after being introduced at half-time.
The former Chelsea striker was delighted to get a goal - after rocking the post with a thunderous shot soon after coming on - and is 11/2 to get the first goal of the game against Alan Pardew's side at the weekend.
"I was itching to get on and the team performed well in the second half," Sturridge said. "I'm looking forward to the next game and it's onwards and upwards from here in helping the team get some results."
The England international has now scored six goals in 12 appearances for the Reds and is 6/4 to score at any time against the Magpies with Paddy Power or 16/5 to score first for his team.
Liverpool are unbeaten in 12 of their 17 away games this season, have not been beaten in their last four Premier League games and are 4/7 in Paddy Power's 'draw no bet' market.
LFC have kept the second highest number of clean sheets in the Premier League behind Manchester City and are 16/5 to win to nil against Newcastle and 11/5 to keep a clean sheet again.
Club captain Steven Gerrard - who will be honoured with a testimonial on August 3 against Olympiacos - has scored three goals in his last seven appearances against the Magpies and is 21/10 to hit the net at any time on Saturday.
LFC have averaged the 28th minute to get on the scoreboard on the road and are 5/2 to score after minute 26 or 9/2 to score between the 21st and 30th minute.
Liverpool to be winning at half-time or full-time is 5/6 while Rodgers' side are 21/10 to score in both halves.
