• Manchester City 3-0 Blackburn
Balotelli opened the scoring as City ran out 3-0 winners in a one-sided contest at the Etihad Stadium to move five points clear at the top of the Premier League. The Italian was making his first league appearance for a month after serving a four-match domestic ban for stamping on Tottenham's Scott Parker.
