Sergio Aguero was back on the bench for Manchester City's FA Cup third-round replay against Blackburn at the Etihad Stadium.

The prolific Argentinian, scorer of 19 goals this season but out for the past eight games, was among the substitutes as Alvaro Negredo and Edin Dzeko again led the attack.

Negredo, Dzeko and Fernandinho were the only players retained from the weekend win at Newcastle with Costel Pantilimon, Joleon Lescott, Micah Richards and James Milner among those to come in.

Blackburn were without their star striker Jordan Rhodes through injury.
