Important match for both team as they both will looking in it for a way to bounce back to the winning streak.City from the following Uef Champions defeat against Bayern Munich 2-0,and Rovers from heavy defeat last week from Newcastle 3-1.It will be interesting to see a score line at the end of match as Man City has already scored 19 league goals in this season,and 10 of them netted on the club’s away matches.To reflect at Ewood Park Rovers in their last eight matches have managed to keep only one clean sheet .

After the Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko apologised for his angry reaction to being substituted against Bayern Munich in Uefa Championship  he is exptected to start a match from the bench,and may come in to play to partner Sergio Aguero in attack.

“I know my reaction (to being taken off) was bad,” he said.
“I have spoken to the guys and to the coach as well.
“I have apologised for the reaction and Roberto has accepted it and said that everything is okay and that we have to be positive for the next game.”
