Man United vs Cardiff City Injury Report: Sanchez, Bailly, Bamba, Paterson


Manchester United can now pretty much just look ahead to the summer transfer window. Or at least their fans already have. Yes, they have one more game to play, on Championship Sunday against already relegated Cardiff City, but it’s essentially meaningless as 1.) United are already officially demoted to UEFA Europa League next season and 2.) Cardiff City have already been relegated to the Championship.

It will be interesting to see what kind of crowd United draws to this match, as the unrest among their fan base is extremely strong right now.

Alexis Sanchez, widely considered among the worst acquisitions in club history is a major doubt for this match, while central defender Eric Bailly is confirmed as out. As this is essentially a meaningless match, look for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to heavily rotate his side here.

The same goes for Cardiff- expect Neil Warnock to make some changes to his starting lineup. He will be without the services of the injured Joe Ralls, Callum Paterson and Sol Bamba however.

If this trio of players had been available for the Bluebirds, who knows if that would have made the difference to stay up in the top flight.
