LAST TIME OUT
City’s pre-season preparations stepped up a gear at the Academy Stadium on Saturday as we secured an impressive 4-0 win over Barnsley in our second summer friendly.
HEAD TO HEAD GUIDE
In total, City have won 34 of our 80 clashes with Blackpool, drawing 25 and losing 21 since our first encounter back in 1896.

Earlier that season we triumphed 3-2 at Bloomfield Road in a game memorable for David Silva’s first and spectacular Premier League effort for the Club.
