Written off in many quarters, Manchester United certainly made an uncertain start to the season and indeed to life under new boss David Moyes but with their potential title rivals all lacking consistency, the champions have never really been out of it and the victory over Arsenal last time out really re-ignited United’s hopes of retaining their crown.
Moyes’s charges should further boost their stock this weekend as well as they head to Cardiff and bookies agree meaning the visitors are just 4/6 with William Hill to collect a vital three points in South Wales.
The hosts have struggled for goals so far this term, averaging fewer than one per game and that doesn’t bode well against a United defence that has kept four clean sheets in six outings across all competitions.
BetVictor’s 15/8 about an away success ‘to nil’ catches the eye then and for punters seeking bigger prices, bet365 price a 1-0 victory for Moyes’s troops at an appealing 7/1.
Robin van Persie meanwhile, has struck in the last four league matches for and catches the eye at 6/5 (BetVictor) to net at any point in this one.
