Neil Warnock's side are third in the ChampionshipWhat is the team news?

Pep Guardiola has insisted Manchester City remain committed to lifting the FA Cup this season despite the prospect of a nightmare-run of fixtures.

Cardiff's Rhys Healey once had a trial with Sunday's opponents and Warnock could give a chance to the young forward as fellow front-man Danny Ward is out with a knee problem.

And Guardiola accepts trophies are the only thing that will decide how this City side are judged, regardless of the scintillating style of play that has seen them surge 12 points clear at the top of the Premier League. We like to play high up the pitch, we don't dilly dally on the ball, we don't pass it around the back 4 and play possession football. Warnock has tried a variety of different formations, but his team has struggled to contain individual players one-on-one, a trait that does not bode well with City's visit now looming large.

CARDIFF will host Premier League leaders Manchester City in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

"The spotlight on the Premier League, it's so massive now", added the Bluebirds' skipper.

YOU can watch the match live on BBC One. I'm fully aware of the quality of Aguero, I've played against him before and I just have to go out there and do my job.

Former Blackburn Rovers man Junior Hoilett has been key to their progress in this competition, and Cardiff will need the Canadian winger at his very best if they are to have any hope of victory here.

"We will have a go but it has been the easiest week of training, because we haven't had a ball, we have just been chasing shadows to get used it", he joked.

Which TV channel is Cardiff City vs Man City on? We have spoken about them and we know it will be complicated.

Guardiola said he understood why Pellegrini made that decision - with City going on to reach the Champions League semi-finals - but added that the club are in a stronger position to deal with such tests now. The pressure is not on us, we can give them a really good game, do what we did to Wolves and other teams in the Championship.

Pep Guardiola knows his Manchester City side will be judged on trophies rather than the fantastic performances they have produced this season, as they closed in on the first silverware of a possible quadruple.
