Man City 3-0 Aston Villa | English Premier League
Manchester City beat Dean Smith’s Aston Villa side by a rather comfortable 3-0 scoreline in the day’s early kick-off. Although the sides looked pretty evenly matched in the first half, Manchester City came out all guns blazing in the second and simply blew the Villans away.
Goals from Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan were enough for the Citizens to seal the win on the night, as they rise back up above Leicester City into second place.
