Mauro Zarate´s brace earned 10-man Birmingham a 3-1 victory in their battle for Barclays Premier League survival against Sven Goran Eriksson´s Manchester City.

The on-loan Al-Sadd striker produced some clinical finishing to edge Blues further away from the bottom three.

The home side had a few scares after Franck Queudrue´s red card as Elano converted a penalty but another spot-kick from Gary McSheffrey restored the two-goal advantage.
