Blackburn 0-1 Manchester City – Match Highlights

Edin Dzeko came off the bench to fire Manchester City to a vital 1-0 Premier League win over Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park that gives their Champions League aspirations a huge boost.

Roberto Mancini introduced the Bosnian striker with 18 minutes remaining and it took him just three minutes to have a decisive impact on the game as he fired his first goal since arriving in a £27 million move from Wolfsburg in January.

Victory sees City open up a four point advantage over Tottenham – their nearest rivals for the fourth and final Champions League spot – and move within five points of third-placed Arsenal – having played a game less than the Gunners – with five fixtures remaining this season.

The result was no less significant for Blackburn, who remain in 16th and just a point above the drop zone after their 10th league game without a win.
