Stephen Carr and Liam Ridgewell are the only absentees for Birmingham.

Right-back Carr is again rested and has not travelled to Portugal, with the veteran having only featured in one group game for City - their 3-1 reverse against Braga on matchday one.

Left-back Ridgewell, meanwhile, is still struggling with the thigh injury which has ruled him out of the club's last three games. Fit-again midfielder Morgaro Gomis (calf) comes back into contention but is unlikely to start.

Birmingham (from): Myhill, Doyle, Murphy, Caldwell, Ibanez, Davies, Spector, Burke, N'Daw, Beausejour, Gomis, Elliott, Fahey, Valles, Redmond, King, Zigic, Wood, Rooney.

'Costa Is A Bad Man. Suarez Is Not'

That's quite some claim. And yes, unfortunately we are still talking about this. We also have mails on Ronaldinho, possible replacements for Yaya Toure and more...

Red Mist Better Than Calculated Costa?

Hmmm. We're not sure about this argument - one Mailbox says Luis Suarez is easier to forgive because he is a little loco. We also have mails on Studge and more...
