MANCHESTER, England (AP) -- Alvaro Negredo and Edin Dzeko grabbed two goals each and Sergio Aguero scored on his return from injury as Manchester City swept to a 5-0 win over Blackburn in an FA Cup third-round replay on Wednesday.

In taking its goal tally to 99 in all competitions this season, City delivered another demonstration of its lethal firepower at Etihad Stadium to set up a fourth-round match at home to another second-tier team -- Watford.

City's largely second-string team took a while to get going, with Negredo opening the scoring in first-half injury time, but the Premier League side was irrepressible after the break.

Aguero scored within a minute of coming on as a 72nd-minute substitute following a month out with a calf injury.

The teams drew 1-1 on Jan. 4.
