MCFC can reach a remarkable landmark on Saturday by scoring their 100th goal of the season, in all competitions.
This is the first time Cardiff have visited Manchester City in any competition since March 1985 when they escaped with a point after a 2-2 draw.
Cardiff came from behind to beat Man City 3-2 earlier in the season with all five goals in their 3-2 win coming in the second half.
Manchester City have won their last 10 straight Premier League games at the Etihad Stadium and won 15 of the last 16.
The Citizens have scored 38 goals on home soil this season, five more than any other team in Premier League history in their opening 10 home matches.
The Welsh side have failed to score in five of their last six Premier League away matches, netting just once in the other.
Manchester City have collected 28 points from their last 10 Premier League games (W9 D1) - three more than any other team over this period.

Jack Rodwell & Samir Nasri.
Hart, Pantilimon, Wright, Boyata, Clichy, Demichelis, Kolarov, Kompany, Lescott, Nastasic, Richards, Zabaleta, Garcia, Fernandinho, Milner, Nasri, Navas, Silva, Toure, Aguero, Dzeko, Guidetti, Negredo, Nimely.
Silva has had his fair share of knocks this season and is expected to return from another one. Solskjaer may try and set his side up to be solid. Silva has the ability to open up the most solid defences in the league so it wouldn't be surprising if he is at the centre of a lot of the home side's more productive play.
Lewis, Marshall, Moore, Amondarain, Brayford, Caulker, Connolly, Hudson, Lappin, Taylor, Theophile-Catherine, Turner, Cowie, Gunnarsson, Kim, Medel, Mutch, Noone, Whittingham, Bellamy, Campbell, Cornelius, Mason, Maynard, Odemwingie, Smith, Velikonja.
Campbell gave Man City a torrid time earlier on in the season when Cardiff caused the first major upset of the season. His pace to get in and behind the back four and awareness around the penalty area ensured he was a handful. Can lightning strike twice?
