Manchester United News and Form
Manchester United’s season will end without a shot at a top-four finish. They have taken only the two points from their last four league games now in what has been a terribly poor finish. If they can overturn a one-point deficit to Arsenal (two points really considering they are far worse off in goal difference to the Gunners) then United could steal fifth. The home record of the Red Devils this season is 10 D6 L2 and really it is in their home games against the stronger sides where they have failed. They have gone D4 L2 in their home games against the other top seven sides, leaving all their wins coming against teams eighth or lower.
United have averaged 1.8 goals per home game, managing to take a clean sheet in just 11% of home fixtures. 72% of league games at Old Trafford have gone over 2.5 goals and of the ten home victories they have recorded, seven of them have been by a one-goal margin. The Red Devils have no clean sheet in their last ten league games, home and away, none in their last five at Old Trafford. Manchester United have been leading at half time in nine of their home games, which is good, but they have conceded 74% of their goals at Old Trafford in the second period of games.
Manchester United v Cardiff Head to Head
The Red Devils were 5-1 winners at Cardiff in December

Cardiff News and Form
The Bluebirds are on a three-match losing streak. They could not do enough to keep their survival hopes alive until the final weekend of the season. So they are heading down. Their away record for the season in the EPL reads W3 D2 L13 and in that campaign, they have managed just eleven away goals. That is an average of 0.6 per game. Less than half of their road games have made it over 2.5 goals. Each of Cardiff’s last five away games have actually ended under the goal line.
In total, the Bluebirds have taken a clean sheet in 22% of their away games this season in the top flight. Cardiff have lost four of their last five away games (W1) the one bright moment in that sequence coming against Brighton. Of their thirteen away defeats, eight of them have been by a one-goal margin only. Cardiff haven’t been involved in an away draw in any of their last nine on the road. They have been losing at the halftime break in exactly half of their road games for the term. Nine of the 11 goals which they have scored on their travels this season have come in the second half of games.
