David Moyes will be hoping that United's turnaround will continue after starting the season with only two wins in six matches. The Red Devils have won six and drawn three of their past nine matches in all competitions and have gone five games without a loss in the league.
"That's our aim - to still be up there and maybe top or in or around there come the New Year. Then, hopefully, we can kick on," Wayne Rooney told the team's official website.
Rooney will again be a major factor in United's success and has been in good form with five goals in his last eight games.
His partner on the attacking line, Dutch international Robin van Persie, will also be counted on against Cardiff which United has not faced in 38 years when both clubs where in the second division.
Newly promoted Cardiff City are near the relegation zone, but did manage to beat Manchester City and will be looking to sweep the Manchester clubs this season. Since that impressive win over City, Cardiff have recorded just one win in four home matches.
Cardiff have been having a tough time finding the back of the net with just three goals during their last five games. Facing United does not look like it will give the club a reprieve given that United has allowed only one goal in their last four matches.
Kick off for the match is at 11:00 a.m. ET and can be watched online here.
