Not much to play for in this one for either of Manchester United or Cardiff except pride. Last time out United’s draw against Huddersfield ended any hopes of a top four finish while Cardiff’s 3-2 loss to Palace condemned them to Championship football next season. Form Labs return with their betting preview and tips for the game while we bring you plenty of value with our selection of enhanced odds for the final round of the Premier League season.
Nothing At Stake
Neither team has anything riding on this game with United unable to make the top four and Cardiff relegated last weekend hosting Palace.
The combative Neil Warnock will be furious nonetheless if his side don’t approach this game with the right attitude, though Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may use the fixture to send a message to some of his underperforming stars and give youth a chance.
Utd’s stalemate away at Huddersfield – the first time the Terriers have taken points off a member of the ‘Big Six’ this term – has been a new low for his side.
Cardiff will also be seeking to avoid a clean sweep for those outfits having lost all 11 encounters with the ‘Big Six’, though they have at least been more competitive in recent clashes.
Since late January, the Bluebirds have gone down 2-1 to both Arsenal and Chelsea, with Maurizio Sarri’s side very fortunate to walk away with the points in the bag, while they only lost 2-0 to title-chasing duo Man City and Liverpool last month, with those two sides clearly a cut above the rest of the division.
Regardless of whether Solskjaer elects to field his regulars who are lacking form and confidence, or instead turns to inexperienced youngsters, either way this will hardly be his best team and they look far too short at the prices on current form.

Indeed, the Red Devils are just W2-D2-L7 over their past 11 fixtures in all competitions, but even while the two victories came at old Trafford, these were unconvincing displays in 2-1 successes over Watford and the Hammers.
The Norwegian experienced an initial wind in the sails to his tenure by virtue of not being Jose Mourinho, even beating Cardiff 5-1 in the reverse fixture in his very first game in charge.
However, excluding his first three results where the players were benefiting from a feeling of liberation, United have only beaten a team by more than two goals just once in the subsequent 25 matches.
The one exception came on the road at Fulham back in early February, while he hasn’t lead them to a victory by even a margin of two goals in his past 10 at Old Trafford.
