After suffering their third defeat of the season to Chelsea last weekend, Neil Warnock's men will be looking to improve on the showing at Stamford Bridge and will aim to cause an upset against the Citizens
With that in mind, here is how Cardiff are likely to line up against City.
1. Goalkeeper and Defenders
Neil Etheridge (GK) - The penalty save king has started every game this season and has certainly nailed down the number one jersey.
Bruno Manga (RB) - The tough tackling right-back has played in every game this season.
Sean Morrison (CB) - The captain has been an ever-present in the side since 2014.
Sol Bamba (CB) - The veteran defender scored the goal that put Cardiff ahead at Stamford Bridge.
Joe Bennett (LB) - The left-back has started every game since the start of the season, so there no reason for him not to continue in the starting lineup.
Victor Camarasa (RM) - The centre midfielder has been operating on the right flank in place of the injured Josh Murphy.
Joe Ralls (CM) - Plays well alongside Arter, their partnership helps Cardiff get forward.
Harry Arter (CM) - Since his loan move to Cardiff, Arter has been a constant figure in the heart of the midfield.
Junior Hoilett (LM) - An ever-present figure under Warnock.
Bobby Reid (CF) - Operates as the centre forward/attacking midfielder in Cardiff's 4-4-1-1 formation. Has a good eye for a goal and his work rate is high.
Danny Ward (ST) - Has been preferred up front ahead of Kenneth Zahore and Gary Madine. He has a good playing relationship with Reid up top.
