LONDON (AP) -- Goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon gifted Blackburn an equalizer as 10-man Manchester City was held to a 1-1 draw in the third round of the FA Cup on Saturday.

City broke the second-tier side's resistance just before halftime when Alvaro Negredo put last season's runners-up in front.

But Blackburn earned a replay by leveling 10 minutes into the second half after Pantilimon fumbled Rudy Gestede's header before Scott Dann rushed in to sweep the ball into the net from close range.

City was left hanging on after Dedryck Boyata was sent off in the 85th minute when a foul on D.J. Campbell earned him a second yellow card.

In the standout fixture of the third round, Arsenal hosts neighbor Tottenham later Saturday.
