Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Manchester United will be looking to put an end to their four-game winless run in the Premier League when they host Cardiff City at their Old Trafford. The Red Devils dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with Huddersfield Town and, as a result, they will not represent England in the Champions League next term. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s troops, though, aim to finish the season in style and we predict that they are going to go for a win against Cardiff City.
The Bluebirds will compete in the Championship next term as they suffered a heart-breaking loss to Crystal Palace at the weekend, but they surely want to spoil Man Utd’s party at Old Trafford. However, the Red Devils are more of a team than the Bluebirds and seeing that the Welsh club often struggle on the travels, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts.
Highlighted Player (Alexis Sanchez):
Alexis Sanchez is a Chilean football player born on 19th of December 1988. Sanchez started playing football for Cobreloa and played for Colo Colo, River Plate, Udinese and FC Barcelona before he started playing for Arsenal in 2014. The Chilean player is active for the national team as well.

Alexis Sanchez’ nickname was give by the Colo Colo fans and is El Nino Maravila which literally means The Wonder Kid. In 2014-2015 Alexis Sanchez was placed in the PFA team of the year and got nominated as Player of the year.
Highlighted Team (Cardiff):
Cardiff City are a Welsh football club that compete in the English second tier (Championship). In 2009 they moved from Ninian Park to Cardiff City Stadium, the venue that officially holds 33,280 spectators.
The Bluebirds played their first ever Premier League match on 18 August, 2013, but they were beaten by West Ham United (0-2) on their debut in the English top flight. However, a week later Fraizer Campbell (two goals) and Aron Gunnarson helped Cardiff City record their first ever win in the Premier League.
The Bluebirds outplayed Manchester City back then, but they eventually dropped to the Championship at the end of the season. Fellow Welsh outfit Swansea City are considered Cardiff’s fiercest rivals and the two teams take on each other in the South Wales derby.
The colour of Cardiff City’s home kit is blue, whilst they wear red shirts and shorts when playing on the travels.
