Man City launch a close pursuit against Premier League leaders Liverpool after flexing their muscles against Aston Villa in a 3-0 victory.

Man City now stays three point behind Liverpool who needs to restore and maintain their six-point lead only if they are able to beat Tottenham on Sunday. After losing points last weekend, Jurgen Klopp’s side were very much aware that Man City runs never to stop until they equals the lead.

Even as it’s all looking like this is a shaped routine win for Manchester City, they had to block their loopholes before meeting a well prepared Aston Villa whose manager had said that the Pep Guardiola’s side are not supper human, even though they’re truly good.

Aston Villa’s grip on Man City was largely spread across first half and had lasted for only twenty minutes in the second half after squandering possession from their own kick-off, Ederson’s long punt forward was flicked on by Gabriel Jesus and into the path of Sterling, who made no mistake in driving home result.

Gabrieal Jesus should have made it 2-0 afterwards when an unexpected mistake by Bjorn Engels left him clean through, but both Tom Heaton save and a brilliant goal-line clearance by Tyrone Mings didn’t allow it.

Man City actually played for another 65 minute to launch their second goal, which was awarded to Kevin de Bruyne after a long delay for a VAR decision was taken.

The confusion centered around who among David Silva or Raheem Sterling was offside from a Silva touch, had got a deflection on De Bruyne’s wicked curling cross but it was later decided that it had gone straight in.

Moreover, Ilkay Gundogan left no stone on-turned in making sure of the points a few moments later, when Fernandinho’s shot was cleared into his path, and he smartly adjusted his body to put away a fine first-time finish.

The hosts played the final match with only 10 men following Fernandinho exit.
