Burnley 1 City 6
City went into this game under pressure to deliver against a side facing relegation and fighting for their lives.
Of course the endeavour of the home team would cause Mancini's men some problems initially behind a partisan crowd and Toure and the boys would need to stand firm in the face of an early tempest.
Every Blue was hoping that their side's class would then shine through taking them to another away win and into fourth place in the Premiership, after Spur's slip up at Sunderland.
That was the plan anyway but nothing ever goes to plan in football does it? Well no as this time City registered an away win record of the season by murdering the Clarets six one in, five in a first half blitz never seen before in Premier League history.
After three minutes Adebayor teed up a Johnson cross for himself to lash a volley past the helpless Jensen in the Burnley goal.
Things got better as Bellemy waltzed unchallenged into the area to pass the ball into the bottom right hand corner and then Carlos Tevez finished off another quick City counter attack.
Patrick Viera then scored a bullet header before Adebayor finished superbly after a great through ball sliced open the Burnley defence.
The score line unbelievably flattered the Lancashire side as City could have been seven or eight goals ahead come the break.
The second half was marred by atrocious rain and a waterlogged pitch hampering City's passung game and encouraging Burnley to pressure for an abandonment to the game.
Vincent Kompany scored his second league goal in a carbon copy of Patrick Viera's in the first half before Burnley scored a nice consolation through Fletcher who finished with aplomb.
City overtake Spurs and take fourth position back and of course cut the deficit back by seven goals today.
We also received no suspensions going into the last five game of the season and can look forward to home games against inferior opposition before our trip to the Emirates.
