The Citizens,who are currently on a 15-game winning run, will host Mauricio Pochettino's charges at the Etihad on Saturday night.
However, Rose was full of praise for Pep Guardiola's charges ahead of the clash.
They're in good form," Rose told the Evening Standard.
They do look very frightening - scoring goals and they've kept a clean sheet against Swansea.
"We've done alright there in the past couple of seasons and that should give us some confidence at the weekend."
