Birmingham City will be hoping some classic FA Cup magic will help them defeat Manchester City at the Etihad on Sunday.

However, the Blues have been eliminated from the competition by Premier League opposition for the last seven years.

It also doesn’t bode well for Birmingham that Manchester City last failed to reach the fourth round back in 2011/12.

Pep Guardiola’s side have won their last five third round ties by an aggregate score of 23-2, and will be expected to make light work of their out-of-form opponents.

Here is everything you need to know:

When is it?

The fixture will kick-off at 1:30pm GMT at the Etihad Stadium.

How can I watch it?

The match will be streamed live on the BBC Sport website and iPlayer.

Confirmed line-ups

Man City: Steffen, Joao Cancelo, Dias, Walker, Mendy, Rodri, Mahrez, De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, Foden, Gabriel Jesus

Birmingham: Andres, Colin, Clarke-Salter, San Jose, Friend, Kieftenbeld, Sunjic, Toral, Leko, Ivan Sanchez, Hogan

Odds

Manchester City: 1/10

Draw: 8/1

Birmingham: 22/1

Prediction

Birmingham’s form in the Championship has been awful, and so this clash against a Manchester City side in the ascendency just feels like bad timing. 4-0 City.
