Bet Live on the FA Cup: Manchester City vs. Blackburn RoversPublished January 15, 2014 by OCR Editor
Manchester City vs. Blackburn Rovers, 7:45pm UK time.
Over at the Etihad Stadium tonight home team Manchester City hosts Blackburn Rovers for the FA Cup third round. The game is a replay after the Citizens and the Rovers concluded their last match at Ewood Park with a 1-1 draw.
Manchester City is having an excellent season so far, positioned second in the Premier League's table with 47 points, just one point apart from table leader Arsenal. Manchester City's form is great: Excluding the draw with Blackburn last week, the team has had 9 wins in their last 10 overall games.
Blackburn Rovers can cling to the fact that they're the only team that stopped City recently, and with that spirit they will climb the pitch; the Rover's are not in great pressure as opposed to City whose players will be looked upon very closely after their "slip" in their last meeting with the Rovers.
Blackburn is doing not so bad themselves in the Championship league; in all competitions in total they've lost only one match in their last eight. One more thing that Blackburn's got working for them is Manchester City's injuries which sees key players like Samir Nasri, Sergio Aguero, Stevan Jovetic and Yaya Toure likely to sit on the bench. The City's defense is up for a serious test and we have an interesting game ahead of us.
