Birmingham City vs Cardiff City – Match Preview

Birmingham City vs Cardiff City – Match Preview – Birmingham City take on Cardiff City at St Andrews Stadium this evening in the Skybet Championship.

Birmingham manager Steve Cotterill will take charge of his first full game as manager and has plenty of work to do to turn around the Midland sides fortunes. Birmingham currently sit in the relegation zone, in 22nd position after a poor start and a win would see them move up to 19th, at least until Saturday afternoon.

Cardiff have had a great start to the campaign as they sit atop the Championship, 1 point ahead of Wolves, who take on Aston Villa in the Saturday evening fixture.

Birmingham could have record signing Jota back in the side after recovering from a hamstring injury but Emilio Nsue could be on the bench after returning from international duty with Equatorial Guinea. Arsenal loanee Carl Jenkinson is still sidelined with a dislocated shoulder.

Cardiff have midfielder Aron Gunnarsson back after he went away on international duty with Iceland, something manager Neil Warnock wasn’t too pleased about due to Gunnarsson missing the previous two games for the Bluebirds.

Both Bruno Manga and Neil Etheridge also returned from international duty meaning they will also be assessed prior to kick off. Craig Bryson though could feature after missing out in the draw to Derby County, the side he is currently on loan from.

The hosts do not hold a good record against their opponents as in the past 11 meetings between the two, The Blues have only won one game back in 2015. However, Cardiff have only won twice in the past 27 away visits to Birmingham, without scoring a goal in the last three.

Cardiff should be able to breach the Birmingham defence but with Cotterill taking over for The Blues, and being at home, the side should surely be seeking a much needed win for both manager and the fans in what could be an exciting Friday evening fixture.

Manchester City vs Everton – Match Preview

Manchester City vs Everton – Match Preview – Manchester City host Everton at the Etihad Stadium in the FA Premier League, with the last game of the 2nd week set to be an exciting one.

Both sides have strengthened their squads; Manchester City have spent over £150 million on their defence alone, signing Kyle Walker for £45 million from Tottenham and raiding current French champions, Monaco, for Benjamin Mendy and Bernardo Silva.

Everton also added to their squad, selling forward, Romelu Lukaku, to Manchester United in an initial £75 million deal, allowing them to pursue a number of players in all areas of the squad. Most notably, the return of Wayne Rooney from Manchester United. Everton have also signed Swansea attacking midfielder, Gylfi Sigurdsson for £45 million, showing that Everton are not only looking to compete in the league, but on all fronts of competitions, especially with the Europa League being very demanding.

Team News

City defeated newly promoted Brighton on their opening fixture 2-0 at the Amex stadium, with Sergio Aguero and a Lewis Dunk own goal securing a comfortable win. No new injury concerns for the Citizens, with new signing Benjamin Mendy still sidelined with a thigh injury. City are expected to be unchanged from their opening fixture.

Everton also won their opening fixture, with a 1-0 home win against Stoke City as Wayne Rooney scored on his Premier League return to Goodison Park. Koeman and his men were in action in the Europa League first round playoffs last Thursday, defeating Hadjuk Split at home. Everton look set for a packed season, full of midweek games to fulfil as well as the Premier League and the signings made by Ronald Koeman show he has ammunition in most areas of the field.

New signing Gylfi Sigurdsson is poised to make his debut for Everton and Spanish forward Sandro Ramirez could return after missing out midweek. Ross Barkley and James McCarthy are still sidelined with injury.

Player To Watch

Wayne Rooney has come back to Everton with a smile on his face and has settled in extremely well, back at Goodison. He has taken the captain’s armband in place of Phil Jagielka and looks as though he never left the club. Slotting in behind the striker or even leading the line himself, Rooney can adapt to most circumstances on the field along with taking control from the middle. With Rooney’s experience and hunger for success, both Koeman and the squad will benefit from England’s all time top goalscorer and the added incentive of facing Manchester City could see a performance of the highest from the former Manchester United forward.
