  • CITY SCORE FROM THE CORNER! A set-piece that probably shouldn't have been rewarded as replays suggest the final touch came off Gundogan leads to a goal as Rodri gets the better of Guilbert just outside the six-yard box and thumps his header past the keeper! 2-0 to Manchester City!

  • ASTON VILLA CUT THE DEFICIT IN HALF! Stones falls over in an attempt to stop the run of El Ghazi, allowing the winger to continue unimpeded down the left. When in position, he looks up and finds the run of Samatta, whose leaping header beats Bravo at the near post! 2-1!

  • A reckless sliding challenge leaves Aguero in a heap and Nakamba in the referee’s notebook. The ball was there to be won but it’s a two-footed challenge from the midfielder who can count himself lucky to stay on the pitch.
