2012 English Premier League:Manchester City vs. Blackburn RoversFebruary 21, 2012 by Marc Jerbs

On Saturday, Manchester City will host the Blackburn Rovers for a Premier League fixture at Etihad Stadium. The match will start at 17:30PM GMT.

Manchester City currently sits atop the Premier League table with 19 win, 3 draws and 3 losses. Their three losses came from Chelsea, Sunderland and Everton. They have a two-point lead over 2nd place Manchester United but have a 45-36 goal difference advantage.

Manchester City has won their last two games against Fulham and Aston Villa. However, they should not underestimate the Blackburn Rovers this Saturday. Blackburn could pull off an upset win if Manchester City let their guards down.

The Blackburn Rovers have moved up to 17th place but are still in danger of relegation if they don't win enough in their remaining matches. This is the 2nd meeting between the two clubs. Last August 21, Manchester City pulled a 3-2 win over Blackburn.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed Manchester City as the odds on favorite to beat the Blackburn Rovers this Saturday.
