Man United are comfortable 1/4 favourites to smash Cardiff City as club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer leads the Welsh side to Old Trafford.

There aren’t many people who know Manchester United better than Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the baby-faced Norwegian will hope this knowledge will serve him well as he takes Cardiff City to face his former employers.

It won’t be easy though with United needing a big push if they are to improve on their current position of seventh in the standings.

However, David Moyes’ side will no doubt be reinvigorated by the arrival of Juan Mata from Chelsea and the Spanish playmaker looks set to make his debut on Tuesday.

He is likely to join a much stronger looking Untied squad that will also have Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie back in the line-up after both players had been out injured since the start of the year.

With United having been such a major force in the Premier League over the past 22 years,a win would see The Red Devils overpass the 1,000 point mark at Old Trafford in the league having currently earned 998 points at home in the top flight.

Cardiff will no doubt be out to spoil the party but The Bluebirds have it all to do as they sit bottom of the table although a win would lift them out of the relegation zone for the moment.

The good news for Solskjaer is that he has no new injury concerns to worry about however it means that Don Cowie, Andrew Taylor and Matthew Connolly will all miss the trip to Old Trafford.

Alongside that, Cardiff look poised to make two more signings in the shape of Fabio and Kenwyne Jones but neither of the deals are likely to be finalised in time for the Od Trafford clash.

Although it has been 60 years since Cardiff last won at Old Trafford, the Welsh side currently have the highest proportion of headed goals in the Premier League (33%) and their prominent aerial threat will cause problems if forgotten about.

There’s no doubt that Solskjaer will be emotional bout returning to his second home but the baby faced assassin will need to be fully focused if Cardiff are to spoil both Juan Mata’s and Manchester United’s party on Tuesday night.
