How we expect Man City to line-up against Birmingham in FA Cup

The striker has endured a torrid injury-hit campaign due to a niggling knee complaint, but should line-up against the Championship side this weekend.

Fellow striker Gabriel Jesus and right-back Kyle Walker could feature after returning to training this week, and being unused substitutes against Manchester United on Wednesday, following positive Covid-19 tests.

Goalkeeper Ederson, winger Ferran Torres and midfielder Tommy Doyle are the next players due to return but they must first test negative and playing in the game may be unrealistic.

Third-choice goalkeeper Scott Carson, defender Eric Garcia and midfielder Cole Palmer are still isolating while centre-backs Aymeric Laporte and Nathan Ake are doubts with muscle problems.

Manchester City predicted XI (4-3-3): Steffen, Walker, Stones, Harwood-Bellis, Mendy, Gundogan, Rodri, Bernardo, Mahrez, Aguero, Foden
