Meet the opposition

Birmingham finished 19th in the Sky Bet Championship last season, only four points from clear of the relegation zone.

Garry Monk is currently at the helm after being appointed in March 2018, making him the Blues' fifth permanent manager in 15 months.

Monk has had to deal with a transfer embargo this summer meaning it's unsure whether their only signing so far, left-back Kristian Pedersen from Union Berlin, is registered to play this weekend.

However, Birmingham possess plenty of attacking talent with the likes of Jota, Isaac Vassell and Che Adams posing their biggest threat to the Canaries.
