6 Birmingham City players who will surely be guaranteed a start against West Brom



What better way to kick things off again after the postponement of fixtures than to meet high flying West Bromwich Albion in a Midlands derby.

Pep Clotet’s side have gradually improved over the course of the season and since the turn of the year, results have been impressive.

Sitting 16th in the league table as things stand, the Blues are not a million miles away from getting into the top ten and that would be a seen as a huge achievement come the end of the season.

Facing off against West Brom on the weekend of June 20, Clotet will no doubt already be planning his starting eleven, but we have selected SIX players who we feel will walk straight into that team.

Lukas Jutkiewicz

Lukas Jutkiewicz has had a good season all round, netting an impressive 13 league goals so far, and his partnership up front with Scott Hogan is one that Pep Clotet can lean on for the remainder of the season.

Scott Hogan

Joining Birmingham in January on loan from Aston Villa, Hogan has been prolific and excellent.

The former Stoke City man has netted seven goals in eight games and continues to play well with Lukas Jutkiewicz up front.

Marc Roberts

Defensively, Pep Clotet has gradually began to build a solid unit and Marc Roberts has played an important part in that.

The 29-year-old central defender has played in 28 games in the Championship and he will be expected to continue his form when the season resumes.

Kristian Pedersen

Kristian Pedersen is one of those players who will be fighting it out for the Player of the Season award.

The left back has been excellent, committed to the cause and as hard working as they come.

Jeremie Bela

Since Jeremie Bela arrived back in November last year, the tricky winger has done nothing but impress.

Two goals and five assists in 21 appearances made the Frenchman one of Birmingham’s top performers and he will undoubtedly be handing a start on the right side of midfield.

Jude Bellingham

Jude Bellingham’s future will be addressed this summer, having been linked with a Premier League move before now, but he will be keen to push the Blues up the Championship table when football returns.
