Mario Balotelli played a starring role as Manchester City emphatically proved there is life after Carlos Tevez with a 4-0 Barclays Premier League win at Blackburn.

Balotelli capped a brilliant performance with a 59th-minute goal while other second-half strikes from Adam Johnson, Samir Nasri and Stefan Savic eased City home.

Blackburn's best chance fell to substitute Mauro Formica late on but it was not enough for the home fans, some of whom called for boss Steve Kean's dismissal.
