Cardiff preparing for Manchester City by chasing shadows - Warnock

I spoke to my colleagues and they know Neil Warnock. Yet he came to watch the two teams. "If Mourinho brightens up the room, Guardiola pulls down the curtains, and I guessed that Guardiola now tried to measure himself with him", he wrote in his autobiography after famously falling out with the Spaniard during their time together at the Camp Nou. Even if I was Pep, if they are losing at Liverpool with a minute to go, I don't understand why they would take a short corner.

"We'd prefer more time but we are in four competitions and we have to adapt".

City were beaten 5-1 that day, with Pellegrini justifying the decision by pointing out they had a Champions League away match with Dynamo Kiev three days later.

"We are going to play the final at Wembley on February 25, and then play on Thursday against Arsenal in the Premier League. It means he cares; you've got to take your hat off to that". "But if people like Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva are on their game they'll beat anyone in the world". It's been great. We've just been chasing shadows to get used to it.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola: "They are third in the Championship".

So he has warned his gifted team of superstars to avoid being drawn into a physical war and concentrate instead on trying to out-football the Bluebirds.

Cardiff, third in the Championship at present, set up a meeting with the best team in the country courtesy of a 4-1 replay win over Mansfield - a game Guardiola was in the stands for.

Two weeks ago, Turkey launched air strikes and shelling against Kurdish militias in northern Syria, marking a unsafe new escalation in the conflict.

Guardiola said: "That situation [two seasons ago] was completely different to now".

Pep has chopped and changed his side brilliantly and the players just want to keep going, so I'm expecting them to continue down that path of quadruple glory.

Cardiff won the last FA Cup meeting between the two sides, in January 1994, when they knocked out their top-flight opponents as a League One team.

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

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.

"They don't have the pressure (Championship teams), so it's ideal for them, it's a party or maybe a good opportunity. The boys are confident though and it's going to be a tough game, we'll have to be firing on all cylinders".

Guardiola's reported interest in Athletic Bilbao defender Aymeric Laporte, a France under-21 global, shows he is not satisfied with his four current center backs - Stones, Nicolas Otamendi, Eliaquim Mangala and Vincent Kompany.
