Man. City face a trip to Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Sky Blues will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 34 and win only 14 of the 59 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in December 2008, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2 - 2 draw in a Premier League match.
