Manchester United Starting XI Prediction vs Cardiff City


Perhaps the number one thing to watch on Championship Sunday at Old Trafford when Manchester United hosts Cardiff City is the crowd size. With many of the club’s supporters displaying their angst online and in social media, it will be interesting to see if that translates to the attendance figures.

Given the pointlessness of this game, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may rotate his squad a bit. He may also hand a start to some of the doubtful players, should they be fit to go. That list includes Alexis Sanchez, Phil Jones, Ander Herrera and Antonio Valencia. Regarding the last two, this could be the final time they put on the red shirt of the Red Devils.

Herrera is all but out the door to Paris Saint-Germain, reportedly while Valencia, though the team captain, has clearly worn out his welcome with the club as he’s barely featured at all this season.
