Manchester City put their quadruple credentials to the test once again when they travel to Cardiff on Sunday. Pep Guardiola’s men are used to facing Championship high flyers, having faced both Wolves and Bristol City in the Carabao Cup, and the Bluebirds will be desperate to cause an upset and end the Premier League leaders’ hopes of a clean sweep of trophies this season.

GRAB THIS FROM BETVICTOR


Life has moved on a lot since, but City do not have great memories of the Welsh capital. Cardiff beat them 3-2 in their only Premier League meeting; but Guardiola’s men are a completely different animal to that side, who eventually won the title under Manuel Pellegrini. They should have very few issues getting through in this one, but they must be wary of Neil Warnock’s charges.

Form

Cardiff ended a run of four Championship games without a win by emphatically beating a struggling Sunderland side last week. They went on to dispatch Mansfield in an FA Cup replay, having drawn 0-0 at home in the first game, before playing out another stalemate at Hillsborough against Sheffield Wednesday. They currently sit third in the league, two points behind second placed Derby.

CORAL HAVE GOT YOU COVERED

There had been some talk about how Manchester City would bounce back from a first league defeat of the season at Anfield against Liverpool, but they did so in comfortable and professional fashion at home to Newcastle, maintaining a 12-point lead at the top. They eased past Burnley in the last round.

Team News 

Cardiff have a clean bill of health ahead of this game, while Manchester City could welcome back Gabriel Jesus from a knee problem.
