Match Highlights View More Below

Ah, the power of love. Mario Balotelli dedicated his vital first goal to girlfriend Raffaella, and Sergio Aguero continued the seduction of his serenading fans.

This City team wear their hearts on their sleeve in the chase for the title. In the spirit of '68, they attack with abandon whenever the chance arises, and Rovers felt the force this time.

Balotelli broke their resistance in his first League game since his penalty winner against Tottenham a month earlier, celebrating with a T-shirt declaration of his feelings for Rafaella.

Then soon after the break Aguero ensured the Blues would celebrate a remarkable 18th home win in a row by despatching City's second when the overworked Paul Robinson finally made a mistake.
