Rio Ferdinand believes their Premier League title rivals will also drop points at Cardiff City this season.

The defending champions appeared to be heading towards a 2-1 win thanks to Patrice Evra’s header after former United striker Frazier Campbell had cancelled out Wayne Rooney’s opener.

However, Cardiff substitute Kim Bo-Kyung netted a dramatic late equaliser to rescue a point for the home side and deny Untied the chance to move into the top four.

The Bluebirds have now taken four points off Manchester City and United this season, and Ferdinand expects other big clubs to stumble at the Welsh outfit.

“We set out to win and are disappointed not to do so, but other big clubs will come here and drop points,” Ferdinand told United’s website.

“We’re unhappy we didn”t close the game out but, looking back at the end of the season, we may say this was a point gained rather than two lost.

“[Cardiff’s equaliser] was the last free-kick of the game and a silly one to give away – we didn’t defend it as well as we should have. It’s happened a couple of times this season and we have to put it right.

“But nothing’s given out now so it doesn’t matter what the table looks like, as long as we’re within touching distance. We’ll keep looking to pick up points, build momentum and push our way up the table.”
