  • Manchester City romped to a comfortable 5-0 victory against Blackburn at the Etihad Stadium to set up an FA Cup fourth round meeting with Watford. Alvaro Negredo and Edin Dzeko both bagged a brace while Sergio Aguero returned to action with a goal after eight games out with a calf injury.

  • We're into THREE added minutes of stoppage time at the Ethiad Stadium.

  • Connor Mahoney comes on for Lee Williamson for the final few minutes.

  • SO CLOSE! How has that not gone in! Milner thumps his right-footer inches wide of the far post.

  • City win a free-kick on the edge of the area and James Milner gets ready to take this.

  • Chris Taylor feels he is caught on the edge of the area, but play continues.

  • City have Cardiff to come at the weekend at home before take on West Ham in the second leg of the Capital One Cup next Tuesday and then they welcome Watford to the Etihad in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

  • DZEKO BAGS HIS SECOND!! Jesus Navas races away down the right, gets his head up and finds the Bosnian international at the near post. Dzeko simply flicks the ball beyond Simon Eastwood at his near post for his 21st of the season and City's 99th goal overall.


  • Manchester City have played in two of the last three FA Cup finals and will be determined to reach other final this season.

  • Micah Richards is replaced by young Welshman Emyr Huws who was brought in from Swansea in 2009.

  • AGUERO WASTES NO TIME!!! Edin Dzeko picks out the Argentina striker inside the box and the little magician takes one touch to control before firing his left-foot shot into the bottom corner with his second - just 50 seconds after coming on as a substitute. That's his 20th goal of the season!


  • Sergio Aguero replaces two-goal hero Alvaro Negredo.

  • The bad news for Edin Dzeko and Alvaro Negredo is that Sergio Aguero is ready to come on so the partnership which has blossomed so well is about to be broken up!

  • WONDERFUL FINISH!! Jesus Navas gets to the byline before pulling the ball back for Edin Dzeko who meets the ball first-time sending it careering into the roof of the net. That's 14 for the season and four goals in his last three games!


  • CLOSE!! Three chances in a matter of minutes for Rovers now as Jason Lowe thumps his effort just wide of Costel Pantilimon's near post.

  • Aleksandar Kolarov is shown a yellow card for a late tackle on Lee Williamson.
