CITY SET TO CONTINUE WINNING RUN
Manchester City are one of the most in-form teams in European football after winning their last five games in all competitions. They can make it six wins on the bounce when they entertain Birmingham City from the second tier of English football. Manchester City will face Birmingham City this weekend on the back of a good win over Manchester United in their Manchester Derby clash in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night. Manchester City saw off their city rivals to book their place in the Carabao Cup final. John Stones and Fernandinho were the unlikely scorers for the Citizens during their Carabao Cup last four game at the home of Manchester United earlier this week.
Manchester City have won the FA Cup on six occasions but their third round opponents Birmingham City are yet to taste success in the competition though the midlands club reached two finals and ended up on the losing side. They lost to West Brom and Manchester City in 1931 and 1956 respectively.
