Premier League: Birmingham vs. Manchester City

By Joe,

Carson Yeung investing in Birmingham will help their cause to fight the relegation battle this season.

Cash injections and new players are one main topic among both teams that are meeting up in St. Andrews. Birmingham with Carson Yeung injecting £40million into the club is good news but that is dwarfed by the City’s sizeable amount spent in the post season by the rich Saudi owners.  With all the off the field headlines topping the news page, it is really the result on Sunday that will be remembered this season.

Last week, new owner millionaire Hong Kong businessman, Carson Yeung watched his team claim victory over Sunderland picking up their first win since August in the Premiership. Yenug promised Manger Alex McLeish that there will be money made available to spend so Birmingham will be looking forward to strengthen their team when the transfer window opens. McLeish will be without Bent, Espinoza, Murphy, Martin Taylor and Joe Hart as he is ineligible to play his former club while on loan. Fahey is ruled doubtful to face City.

Manchester City won 5-0 in the midweek against Scunthorpe in the Carling Cup. It is certainly a good warm match leading up to the Birmingham match for Mark Hughes’s men. Both Manchester City duo Kolo Toure and Martin Petrov missing out the midweek tie but they should return in time to face Birmingham. The only players who will not feature in the squad are Nedum Onuoha and Robinho. It looks like a strong attacking City team that will travel to St. Andrews.

Manchester City are favourites to collect three points in St. Andrews in the only Premiership match on Sunday. There is a serious competition for the two attacking places available on the starting line up and that could prove the edge for Manchester City. Birmingham will ride on their luck and hopefully overcome their scoring problem.
