Manchester City beat Aston Villa to close gap behind leaders Arsenal in Premier League

Manchester City have closed the gap to Arsenal with a routine 3-1 victory over Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium.

City send warning to the Premier League. The Premier League declared war on champions Manchester City this week, making serious allegations among over 100 charges

Full Time Ratings. Ederson : Didn't seem to do as much as he could have done when Watkins scored, but better in the late Villa charge including a great tip over the bar from Coutinho. 7

Full Time Ratings. Walker: Took his eye off the ball to allow Villa in late on but otherwise a solid showing as he looks to reclaim his spot. 6

Full Time Ratings. Dias: Gave what City have missed from him, organising the backline and putting his body on the line to keep Villa out. 7

Good work by Rodri Laporte was caught out of position but Rodri tracked back to deal with Duran's cross

Dominant possession. City are able to play this game at their own speed. Villa are sitting back trying not to concede

Plenty wanted that penalty. Rodri wanted that penalty, so did Erling Haaland. Both looked unhappy to hand the ball over, but Mahrez got his way and converted cooly.
