    Manchester United vs. Cardiff: An Alternative Preview

    Probable Lineups:

    campbell evans

    Manchester United (4-4-1-1): De Gea, Rafael, Smalling, Evans, Evra, Valencia, Fletcher, Jones, Januzaj, Mata, Welbeck

    The signing of Mata will be on everyone’s lips and with all of United’s injury concerns it is likely that David Moyes will start with the Spaniard playing behind Danny Welbeck. Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney have both resumed training and may feature at some point in the game.

    Cardiff City (4-4-1-1): Marshall, Theophile-Catherine, Caulker, Turner, McNaughton, Gunnarson, Medel, Whittingham, Noone, Mutch, Campbell

    Ole Gunnar Solksjaer returns to Old Trafford and will be looking to grab a point at his old stomping ground against a Man United side with a lot to prove.  Frazier Campbell and Craig Noone will be expected to start after good showings in the FA Cup.

    Fantasy Football Danger Man

    Juan Mata may have just arrived in Manchester but the diminutive Spaniard will be looking to inject some creativity into the midfield.  He could also prove a worthy differential, being owned by only 3% in the Official Fantasy Premier League game.

    Manchester United vs. Cardiff City: An Alternative Preview

    Manchester United have earned 998 points at Old Trafford in Barclays Premier League history, more than any other team has managed on home soil.

    Cardiff City have won none and lost six of their last eight Barclays Premier League away games (W0 D2 L6).

    37 points after 22 matches is the fewest Manchester United have mustered in any single Premier League campaign at this stage.

    Cardiff boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer scored 91 goals in 235 Premier League appearances for Manchester United between 1996-97 and 2006-07.

    The Red Devils have won two and lost three of their last five Premier League home games.

    Cardiff have the best disciplinary record in the top flight this season with just 27 yellow cards and no dismissals.
