Premier League Match Preview: Manchester City vs Cardiff

Manchester City will go one point clear of Liverpool if they win their game in hand at home to Cardiff on Wednesday. Pep Guardiola’s side have won their last 12 home matches in all competitions.

Cardiff were beating Chelsea 1-0 up until the last six minutes of normal time before falling foul of a terrible piece of officiating and losing 2-1. That defeat could end up costing them their Premier League status.

Cardiff would have only been two points off safety if they managed to hold on and beat Chelsea on Sunday but now they are five points adrift and unlikely to improve their position on Wednesday.
