Match Highlights View More Below

City twice threw the lead away at Villa Park to lose 3-2 to Aston Villa who performed something close to a smash and grab raid on their own pitch.

Yaya Toure and Edin Dzeko put the Blues ahead twice, but Villa fought back on each occasion before finally taking a decisive lead themselves after a spirited second-half fight-back.

The defeat means City have taken just one point from a possible nine on their travels this season – a worrying statistic given the opposition have been, with respect, Cardiff, Stoke and Villa.

Spurs’ 1-1 draw with Chelsea earlier in the day meant City knew they could top the table – briefly at least – with three points against Villa.
