Middlesbrough thrash Manchester City

Middlesbrough ran riot against a beleaguered Manchester City side.

City's problems began when Richard Dunne saw red for fouling Tuncay and Stewart Downing scored from the spot.

Afonso Alves drilled home, then Downing hooked into the net and Alves ran clear to make it 4-0 before Adam Johnson scored with a deflected effort.

Fabio Rochemback's fierce free-kick was followed by Jeremie Aliadiere's low shot and, although Elano replied, Alves completed his hat-trick to make it 8-1.
