Still struggling to get into the top four seat in current English Premier League standing, another tricky test arrived for Manchester United this midweek as they face up against newly promoted side, Cardiff City. Although having much stronger side on paper, Man United won't be taking things lightly, considering their inconsistent league form up till now. The arrival of Juan Mata might trigger a positive performance from David Moyes' team, as there's a new found spirit filling them out.
Cardiff themselves have also been in a difficult form in recent times, but they do possessed that ability in causing some problems for top teams up till now, so it's definitely something they're keen on doing on Tuesday, January 28. Playing at Old Trafford will definitely be a difficult task, but the away side will be giving their all to snatch something positive from that battle.
It was a positive result indeed for Man United as they a comfortable 2-0 victory over the struggling Cardiff at Old Trafford, an important result for Moyes' team as they maintained that top four chase. Robin Van Persie marked his return from injury with an opening goal after just six minutes of play, before Ashley Young sealed the game with his effort on 59 minutes.
