Manchester City: Line-up to face Cardiff

29 Enero 2018, 03:48 | Cornelio Vivanco

Guardiola has achieved a fair bit in the game, but he has never come up against a Neil Warnock side before.

Interestingly, Cardiff City secured their first ever Premier League victory, beating Man City 3-2 in their first home match back in the top flight in 2013.

"All the managers are complaining about this - a lot of games, no recovery, a lot of injuries, but it's what it is", said Guardiola. Maybe two or three weeks, or a month, we will see tomorrow.

Premier League heavyweights Chelsea and Manchester City eased into the fifth-round of the FA Cup with comfortable victories on Sunday. "They caught us a few times, and that is football, but obviously Leroy Sane is injured now and, hopefully that is not too bad".

"Playing in the FA Cup away to a Championship team like Cardiff, who are at the top of the league, is so complicated, but we react again like a mature team".

"Today that's so expensive and you cannot buy them all".

The German national team felt they had to remind Cardiff they had an important tournament coming up. The comment was made in jest, but the reality for Cardiff didn't prove too far different.

Cardiff started the game well with Nathaniel Mendez-Laing showing the visitors just how dangerous he can be with an early break down the right. Passing was off, shots were rushed and City just couldn't find the final ball.

"It was a guess".

Guardiola was incensed but soon enough City did have their second. Only Fernandinho and David Silva are in their 30s, with Sergio Aguero the remaining player aged over 27.

There was a moment of high controversy after 25 minutes when De Bruyne fed Bernardo Silva and the Portuguese's ferocious 25-yard shot flew past Etheridge and in off the crossbar. There are no marks for artistic impression, but teams that please the eye are traditionally rated more highly than those that grind out results.

The 24-year old Fred has been one of Shakhtar's best players this season and his performances in the middle of the park have attracted suitors in plenty, with both the Manchester clubs along with Arsenal and Tottenham understood to be monitoring the player.

Cardiff beat Manchester City during their last title winning season in 2013/14.

Wearing the blue No 24 shirt, Grujic certainly had his hands full screening the Cardiff back four.

Guardiola said: "All I ask is that the referee protects the players, not the Man City players, just the players".
