Report: Manchester City 4-0 Aston Villa
City kept their title hopes alive by thrashing bottom-of-the-league Aston Villa to end a run of three straight Premier League defeats
Villa kept the Blues quiet until the second half, until Yaya Toure broke the deadlock in the 48th minute after a pass from David Silva.
A Micah Richards mistake let Sergio Aguero make it 2-0 soon after, before Aguero exchanged passes with Silva to fire home a third.
Raheem Sterling tapped in City’s fourth before Aguero missed the chance to get a hattrick with a missed penalty late on.
A big win to stay in the race. It's a tough one but we'll fight 'til the very end as usual. C'mon, City!

City’s win sees them close the gap on both north London teams after Spurs drew with Arsenal – they are now two points behind the third-placed Gunners with a game in hand.
But they remain 10 points behind leaders Leicester, who beat Watford in Saturday’s late kick-off.
