Rafa Benitez will be hoping DeAndre Yedlin can return to the matchday squad following a mini crisis at right-back.
The US international injured his knee on the opening weekend, and despite training prior to the trip to Cardiff, a decision was not taken not to risk him the early kick-off. "We had a conversation and he will stay here because he needs time to get back to his level." His absence provided Javier Manquillo with a rare start, but following an innocuous looking challenge just before half-time, the defender never re-appeared for the second forty-five due to a twisted ankle. "It's too early, we will see if it is [very serious]," revealed the United boss post-match. The injury left Benitez with no choice but to utilise Isaac Hayden as a makeshift right-back. However, his afternoon had barely begun, before referee Craig Pawson issued a straight red for a rash challenge on Bluebirds winger Josh Murphy which will see the 23-year-old banned for the next three matches.
