Irrepressible. That's the only way to describe this team at the moment. Their second four-goal victory took City to the top of the Barclays Premier League in a fashion to delight the fans.

Roberto Mancini felt able to leave creative stars David Silva and Samir Nasri on the bench and the Blues still comfortably handed buoyant Villa their first beating of the season.

Shay Given came back to a warm welcome from the fans but that was cold comfort as goals from Mario Balotelli, Adam Johnson, Vincent Kompany and James Milner took City into No.1 spot.

And the bad news for their rivals is that Nigel de Jong is back to reinforce as only he can, while Owen Hargreaves showed on his League debut for City that he can play a key role too.
