Manchester City cut the gap on Liverpool yet again as they squared off with Newly promoted Aston Villa at the Etihad.
A goalless half time was witnessed as three penalty claims were canceled off by VAR, with David Silva and Gabriel Jesus having the best chances at halftime as an organized Villa side frustrated City in the first half.
Seconds after the second half began, City took the lead, who else than Raheem Sterling, after Ederson’s pumped ball up front was caught by Gabriel Jesus’ header which set up Sterling for a clean sweep.
City doubled their lead in the 65th minute but with alot of tensed minds as VAR was involved in a possible offside from Kevin De Bruyne’s in swinger that went straight into the back of the net.
70 minutes gone and City were 3-0 up as İĺkay Gundogan’s accurate first-time finish from the edge of the box increased City’s advantage.
The 3-0 victory over Aston Villa took City to 2nd position and will be hoping Liverpool drop points as they face Tottenham on Sunday.
