Manchester City team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Cardiff City

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester City’s latest injury and suspension news ahead of Wednesday’s Premier League clash with relegation-threatened Cardiff City.

Manchester City could take another step towards defending their Premier League title on Wednesday when they face relegation-threatened Cardiff City at the Etihad Stadium.

Liverpool’s dramatic late victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday saw the Reds move back above the champions at the top of the table, but Man City’s game in hand still gives them the edge in a title race which looks set to go down to the wire.

Pep Guardiola‘s side go into the midweek match having won each of their last 12 outings across all competitions and know that if they maintain their recent 100% record until the end of the season then the title will be theirs.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Man City’s latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.
