Cardiff City were refused in the cruelest of styles during Sunday afternoon when they conceded two late goals to lose 1-2 at home to Champions League hopefuls Chelsea. Chelsea’s first goal should have been disallowed for an obvious offside, but the referee failed to call it leaving a bitter atmosphere for Cardiff City’s fans.
The Bluebirds are now five points shy of zone with seven matches left to play with and a game in hand on 17th-placed Burnley. They still have grounds to hope for survival but it is going to obviously be a hill to climb for Neil Warnock and his guys. Cardiff City travel to Etihad Stadium to play reigning champions Manchester City at mid-week’s round. They go in the battle as massive underdogs, but their principal goal is keeping players safe from injuries forward of the most important game of the season from Burnley in the next round.

Manchester City vs Cardiff City: Prediction
The hosts had no troubles storming past penultimate-placed Fulham 0-2 in Craven Cottage on Saturday. Sergio Aguero helped first and scored second goal before he suffered an injury that will keep him away from the pitch for this tie with the Bluebirds.
However, Pep Guardiola includes two super powerful squads on disposal and Gabriel Jesus will probably be equally dangerous leading the lineup here against Cardiff City. The defending champions have a opportunity to overtake Liverpool at the peak of the standings with a win here and we can’t expect anything else but a comprehensive victory for hem here.
The Bluebirds won two, drew 2 and lost 10 of 14 away outings so far in this season. They shipped five goals in this term’s match against Manchester City and we would be surprised to find that a similar scenario happening here too.
