  • CITY LEAD 1-0! WHAT A GOAL FROM SILVA! Friend fails to deal with a diagonal ball played towards Mahrez and can only head it into the danger area. And it falls for Silva on the volley who thunders it into the top corner to put City one goal to the good!

  • GOAL! SILVA DOUBLES CITY'S LEAD! This is a textbook City goal. Mahrez, Foden and De Bruyne pass it around with ease on the right flank before the Algerian plays in De Bruyne who cuts it back for the onrushing Silva to finish from close range. 2-0 City!

  • GOAAAAAALL! IT'S 3-0 CITY! Mahrez breaks forward with pace before finding Foden on the edge of the box. He's surrounded by Birmingham defenders but his first touch is brilliant and his second is even better as he fires a low shot into the bottom corner. 3-0 City!

  • It's been coming and it's Sunjic who becomes the first player to be booked. Foden is bearing down on the defence and the midfielder feels he has no option but to cynically haul the Englishman down.
