Manchester City vs Birmingham Prediction


Manchester City are massive favourites to win this cup tie against a Birmingham team that have struggled in the Championship.

  • Manchester City have won all of their home ties since 2015 (English FA Cup).
  • Manchester City have won both halves in 5 of their last 6 home ties (English FA Cup).
  • Manchester City have won their last 5 matches (all competitions).
  • Manchester City have won 7 of their last 9 home matches (all competitions).
  • Birmingham have lost 5 of their last 6 matches (English Championship).

Head to Head


Manchester City have 67 wins in this fixture compared to Birmingham’s 55. They have also played out 24 draws.

Manchester City won the most recent meeting 2-0 in September 2011.

Manchester City Form


Manchester City look back to their best after picking up some huge results in recent matches.

Pep Guardiola’s team have won five on the bounce, starting with victories over Southampton, Arsenal and Newcastle. They then beat Chelsea 3-1 away from home in their last Premier League fixture.

City then booked their place in the League Cup final after beating Manchester United 2-0 at Old Trafford. Goals came from two unlikely sources in John Stones and Fernandinho.

Birmingham Form


This looks set to be an uphill battle for Birmingham who have lost five of their last six matches, drawing the other.

Blues have dropped to 18th in the Championship table, with their away form being desperately poor. Aitor Karanka’s team have lost seven of their last eight matches at St. Andrew’s, while they have also failed to score in their last three matches.

They lost 2-0 to Blackburn in their previous outing after goals from Adam Armstrong and Bradley Dack.

Team News


Manchester City’s absentees include Cole Palmer, Scott Carson, Nathan Aké, Tommy Doyle, Ferrán Torres, Aymeric Laporte, Eric García and Ederson.

Birmingham will be without Kristian Pedersen, Marc Roberts, Gary Gardner and Alen Halilovic due to injury.
