Manchester City face Cardiff on Sunday in the FA Cup fourth round as we continue our assault on all four competitions.

Our Carabao Cup semi-final victory on Tuesday against Bristol City means we have already booked one date at Wembley this season, and now we go in search of more domestic success in Wales.

Ahead of the game, Pep Guardiola said he expect a tough challenge against the high-flying Championship side.

“I saw Mansfield v Cardiff and realised immediately the way they play, they do to quite well," he said. 

"My staff know more than me. They are third in the Championship. We are playing away. It will be tough.

"We know exactly how complicated the game will be. Last season against Huddersfield, we needed a replay. It’s a team on top form. Tall team, set pieces, aggressive one against one.

"We have to defend high because if we defend the box they are so strong."

The players trained on Friday ahead of the game – and you can watch behind-the-scenes footage via the video above.
