Manchester City's rampant goalscoring ways continued on Wednesday, as the hosts throttled Blackburn 5-0 in the FA Cup. 

Alvaro Negredo and Edin Dzeko both bagged braces and Sergio Aguero marked his return from an eight-match absence due to injury with a goal of his own.

Dzeko opened the scoring in the 46th minute while rising high to put away a header off a cross from Fernandinho.

He got the brace as a result of some questionable Blackburn defending and a fantastic long ball from Aleksandar Kolarov.

Negredo found Kolarov's long ball behind Blackburn's defence, brought it down and coolly chipped in.

Edin Dzeko made it three when he blasted home a shot from a tough angle with an assist from Jesus Navas.

Aguero, who had just come on as a substitute, took a perfect first touch in a tight space and turned to fire across the box to mark his return with a goal.
