Numbers game: Blackburn Rovers (H)

We break down the statistics from City's 2-0 home defeat against Blackburn Rovers.

Blackburn scored a goal in either half, one inside the first two minutes through Bradley Johnson's strike, before Adam Armstrong tucked in their second.

City had their chances, notably Ashley Williams, Niclas Eliasson, while Famara Diédhiou came within inches of reaching a Jack Hunt cross.

It wasn't to be as City moved to seventh in the Sky Bet Championship table.
