Was the result fair?
City were deserved winners, but the scoreline certainly flattered them. The two harsh penalty decisions all but ended Villa's chances of an equaliser after they had looked threatening on the break.
Man City's performance
Despite the eye-catching result, it was by no means vintage from Mancini's men. However, they created enough opportunities to warrant the three points. There wasn't much in the way of flair when they went forward but persistence yet again paid off for them.
Aston Villa's performance
The visitors launched some threatening counter-attacks in the first half, only to capitulate following City's second goal. They played with some confidence, although manager Paul Lambert could struggle to lift his players now that they are in the drop zone.
Sports Mole's man of the match
Yaya Toure: When his team needed to be dragged forward, it was the Ivorian who was there to do it. Dynamic, committed and always positive - Toure helped force his side to the top of the table.
Biggest gaffe of the game:
The first penalty decision was cruel on Villa and should never have been given. It was the linesman who flagged for handball when the ball had clearly hit Andreas Weimann's shoulder. What game he was watching is anyone's guess.
Jon Moss was having a solid afternoon until he awarded City their first spot kick. The second was questionable as well, as Barry Bannan could do little to get his hand out of the way of a cross.
