Manchester City have ended Blackburn Rovers FA Cup dream

The Lancashire side had earned a replay against Manuel Pelligrini's men in the third round of the competition.

But Manchester City cut short any Rovers hopes of progressing further with a 5-0 victory at home.

It keeps alive the challenge from their manager to 'do the quadruple' of a Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and Champions League in one season.
