Manchester United vs. Cardiff City - Football Match Report

Manchester United ended yet another Premier League season in disappointing fashion, losing 2-0 at home to already relegated Cardiff on Sunday. Our live coverage lets you follow all the key moments as they happen.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made five changes to the side that was held to a 1-1 draw by Huddersfield Town last weekend ahead of the final Premier League game of the season, against Cardiff City. Find out by following our live matchcast.

The Red Devils enjoyed an impressive turnaround in form under Solskjaer during his stint as caretaker of the club, winning 14 of his first 9 games in charge of the club, prompting the Old Trafford based outfit to appoint the Norwegian tactician on a permanent basis in March 2019. We know what we have to work on, the player have got the message quite clearly as well.

United had been challenging for third place as recently as the March global break only for the catastrophic loss of form, that directly followed Solskjaer's appointment on a permanent basis, to cost them - and that despite the indifferent showings of their rivals for a top-four finish.

United are scheduled to visit Australia, Singapore and China for four matches in July, although their schedule could be disrupted if they are forced to start in the second qualifying round of next season's Europa League. For me, Greenwood deserves is chance after producing so regularly at every age group he has played in this campaign, alongside Lingard and Chong. "We've hit a brick wall towards the end of the season".

Nathaniel Mendez-Laing scored twice, either side of the break. This game was not where our challenge lies, we have a long and hard way to be where we want to be.

"We've been poor", Solskjaer said.

As far as maintaining a pay structure adjacent to results, Manchester United have yet again proven that they are a club steeped in the culture of overpaying for talent - much like how they shelled out mega money in wages to Alexis Sanchez and signed on the likes of Ashley Young, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling to new contracts.
