Match Highlights View More Below

Patience was the key as a dominant City moved into second-spot in the Premier League following a 2-0 win over Aston Villa.

The Blues bossed the game throughout, recording 27 shots on the Villa goal before Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero bagged goals in the last eight minutes to give Manuel Pellegrini’s men recorded back-to-back wins on the road.

As the old cliché goes, these are the games teams with aspirations to win the title have to win – or something along those lines – and it was at this ground last season that City dominated large portions of the game only to somehow lose 3-2.

The first real opportunity was when Aleks Kolarov lashed in a trademark left-footed howitzer that cannoned off the outside of the post on 10 minutes as the Blues sought an early foothold in the game and, in turn, perhaps a release from the hosts high press tactics.
