PICTURE: Predicted XI - Cardiff City vs Manchester United

Manchester United are back in action in the English Premier League on Sunday afternoon with an away fixture to league new boys Cardiff City. It is the first time that both teams have met in the league since back in 1975 and with Cardiff already getting one over on the the smaller club in Manchester earlier in the season, they will be looking to do the same over United this weekend.

David Moyes will be without first choice central midfielder Michael Carrick on Sunday as he recovers from surgery, also Phil Jones is unavailable for selection but likely to return for the Tottenham Hotspur away fixture on the 1st December 2013.

Below is our predicted Manchester United XI to face Cardiff City at the Cardiff City Stadium. Also there is a full article posting regarding the squads selection process this week, click here to read the starting XI article.

As for Cardiff City, they are currently sitting in 14th position in the league, with their last fixture falling to a 2-0 loss to Aston Villa.

Cardiff City’s predicted XI to face Manchester United is:


Theophile-Catherine, Caulker, Turner, Taylor;

Medel; Cowie, Gunnarsson, Whittingham;



If you are looking for a good bet for Sunday, then Robin van Persie to score first or anytime would be a good one, since the start of the 2011/12 season he has scored the most goals (63) but not only that, he has also hit the woodwork more than any other Premier League player, 19 times.

Moyes being very tactical will opt for fast attack and strong defence my prediction is

De gea
Rafael. Smallings. Evans. Evra
Cleverly. Fellaini
Valencia. Rooney. Januzaj/kagawa
The score will be 2-0 mufc win

Thank God someone has the sense to leave Giggs out of the starting line.
Every week on countdown to kick off who ever is on, Robson, Mickey Thomas or Gordon McQueen they all have Giggs in midfield. No wonder they are poor managers.

Players such as zaha, chicarito and Kagawa have become victims of a bad start in which they played no part. The opening few fixtures which included the likes of Liverpool, chelsea and city produced bad performances and few points which caused fans to question moyes and the new regime but in sticking by his guns in which I feel have been an easy last 6 or 7 games moyes has managed to make it look as though he was right all along which in turn has stopped fans questioning team selection and ultimately halting player development.
