    Chris Johnson: There's nothing quite like a Villa match to lift the spirits after a tough week at work  

  4. Post update

    Man City 4-0 Aston Villa

    Villa have still only had one shot at goal, let alone on target. It came when Jordan Ayew tested Joe Hart before the break.

  5. Post update

    Man City 4-0 Aston Villa

    This game was finished as a contest a long time ago. City are spraying passes around, while Villa and their fans just want to go home.

    Max: Villa 4-0 today is the story of the season. Held it together briefly before crumbling like a poorly made apple pie

    And Villa have brought on Scott Sinclair, who did not get many Premier League minutes here when he played for City. He replaces Jordan Ayew.

    City's last change sees Manu Garcia on for his Premier League debut, replacing Yaya Toure.

  9. A thing of beauty

    Man City 4-0 Aston Villa

    Here's Sergio Aguero's second goal, a thing of beauty as far as team moves go, and it might make up for that penalty miss. Perhaps.

    Another Villa change - Leandro Bacuna is on for Jordan Veretout


    Man City 4-0 Aston Villa

    No hat-trick for Sergio Aguero, not yet anyway. He plants his penalty against the post.

  12. PENALTY to Man City

    Man City 4-0 Aston Villa

    Ciaran Clark fouls Kelechi Iheanacho. No doubt about that one.

    Chris Wright: They shipped 3 at Liverpool and right now they're pasting Villa 4-0. Just what is going on with Man City then?


    Man City 4-0 Aston Villa

    Another change for City. Kelechi Iheanacho is on for David Silva.

    Villa introduce their first sub - Rudy Gestede replaces Gabby Agbonlahor.

    Man City 2-0 Aston Villa

    Jimmy Armfield

    Former England defender on BBC Radio 5 live

    "City will nudge a little bit closer to Tottenham, Leicester and Arsenal if it stays like this, and everyone knows City have the players to make things happen."

    Matt Andrews: At least put up a fight Villa. Oh no, wait, you gave up fighting months ago  

  17. GOAL - Man City 4-0 Aston Villa

    Raheem Sterling (66 mins)

    It's just a question of how many City want to score now. Raheem Sterling adds to Villa's misery with a close-range tap in from a Jesus Navas cross.

  18. Post update

    Man City 3-0 Aston Villa

    This graphic showing territory and possession is almost exactly the same as it was at half-time - the difference? Three City goals in 12 second-half minutes.

    Manchester City

    Raheem Sterling is on for Wilfried Bony and almost makes an instant impact, testing Brad Guzan with a looping shot.
