Malky Mackay's men just avoided defeat against Premier League champions Manchester United in their last home league game. Wayne Rooney gave David Moyes' side an early lead before Fraizer Campbell equalised for the Welsh club.

However, United bounced back from Patrice Evra's header from Rooney's corner before the break. The Red Devils were on the verge of sealing all three points when substitute Kim Bo-Kyung's goal in the final minute gave Cardiff a point.

Arsene Wenger

The Gunners come into this game after a comfortable 2-0 victory over Marseille in the midweek Champions League clash at the Emirates. England international Jack Wilshere struck twice for Arsenal as Wenger's men took top spot in the group table with 12 points, leading second place Borussia Dortmund and third place Napoli by three points.

The victory brings the north London club one step closer to the knockout stages of the Champions League and a point against Napoli in the last fixture will give them top spot in Group F.

Meanwhile, in their last league fixture, Arsenal registered a comfortable 2-0 victory over Southampton. The Gunners sit on top of the Premier League table with 28 points from 12 games and are leading second place Liverpool by four points. Cardiff are 15th with 13 points.

What the Managers Say

Malky Mackay: "I hope he [Ramsey] gets a great reception here and I am pretty sure he will. He is a fine young man, I met him a couple of weeks ago when the Welsh squad were here. He popped in and at that point I said to him to make sure that in a couple of weeks' time he goes easy with us."

Arsene Wengr: "At Swansea he [Ramsey] got stick, at Cardiff I don't know," the Frenchman told reporters. I think the first time he went back there in the Cup tie he was not comfortable with the situation - it was too much for him. Now he is much more experienced. At Swansea it inspired him. The first time it affected him, now he takes that in a more positive way."
