They may try and take advantage of the fact that they are playing at their home ground but this may just turn out to be futile. They are facing one of the league giants and more so the reigning champions, who will not have mercy on them. Perhaps, the only thing they can do is to employ a defensive mode of play not to concede so many goals.

The only injury concern for Neil Warnock is Nathaniel Mendez-Laing who is out with knee injury.

The reigning EPL champions will be coming into this away matchup purposed to continue with their league dominance. They are undefeated in the last 5 EPL games and they will not stop at anything to retain the title at the end of the season.

Nevertheless, they were beaten in their last UEFA Champions League fixture against the French league 1 side, Lyon. This may have aggravated the Citizens and will be coming into this matchup to unleash their frustrations.

Sterling continues to be in great shape with a remarkable contribution to the team’s performance. Currently, he has 3 goals. In this game, Sterling, Aguero, and Sane will be among the starting XI in the forward positions. On the other hand, Kevin De Bruyne, Eliaquim Mangala, Danilo, and Claudio Bravo all remain sidelined for Manchester City with injuries.

Cardiff City vs Manchester City: Head-to-Head

There have been 3 h2h meetings between these two sides in the last 5 years.

Cardiff City vs Manchester City: Prediction

Cardiff is vulnerable for a loss in this matchup and winning here may be a miracle. However, they can be able to score since their striking power has really improved, evidently seen in matches against Arsenal and Chelsea.

Pep Guardiola still has his eyes focused at retaining the league title. He must win the many seemingly easy games before facing the mighty contenders. Therefore, this is will be an easy win for the Citizens who will entertain us with over 2.5 goals.
