PICTURE: Van Persie, Rooney, Mata and Januzaj look ready for action tonight

by Sam Peoples

Has there ever been more excitement about a Manchester United midweek game against a team who are bottom of the Premier League?

Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie, Juan Mata and Adnan Januzaj are all in the matchday squad to face Cardiff City and there is a massive buzz around the club right now as tonight could see Mata make his debut. Unfortunately for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, he is coming back to Old Trafford at the wrong time because United are going to be fired up tonight. 

When fit and firing on all cylinders, that front four would be up there with the best in Europe and it certainly isn’t the attack of a team in decline.

Yes, United might have had a poor start to the season but we have smashed our transfer record for Mata in a real statement of intent – United might be down but we are going nowhere.

With that front four, we’ll be capable of scoring goals against any defence but we need to make sure we start playing as a team from now on. Our season starts now.
