General Game Stats Chart

Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +3 The hosts can't quite fashion a chance and Barry is dispossessed. Villa break forward and Agbonlahor wins a free-kick on the halfway line before the visitors earn a corner which Kolarov clears comfortably.
90' +1 Three added minutes at the Etihad Stadium. City push forward but Kolarov wildly overhits his cross from the left-hand side.
90' City are just running down the clock now, spreading the ball across the back and waiting to celebrate today's emphatic victory.
88' Aleksandr Kolarov has space on the left and plays a dangerous low ball across the area, but Tevez can't quite get on the end of it and Villa have a goal kick.
86' Nearly six! Maicon is released by Tevez and the 31-year-old pulls back for Sinclair, who sticks out a leg to get on the end of it but can only lift it over the bar.
85' Villa enjoying a rare spell of possession, but City are content to sit back with their work done. Brett Holman collects it in the middle and hammers a long-range effort just over the bar.
83' J. Bowery enters the game and replaces C. Benteke.
A quick change of shirt and Barry is back on the pitch. The pace has slowed right down in the match now and Villa just want the final whistle to come. Maicon presses forward down the right but loses control and it goes for a goal kick.
81' Gareth Barry is down after taking a smack in the face from Benteke's flailing arm. It looks unintentional but the former Villa midfielder doesn't care as he takes treatment to stop the bleeding.
79' Substitute Scott Sinclair has a great chance to pick up a goal as City break forward quickly. The winger darts into the box, cuts inside and releases a strike which flies over the bar. Disappointing effort.
78' City have now scored at least three goals in their last four league games against Aston Villa. Not a great stat for the Midlanders, that one.
