The VMC Man of The Match No. 35 versus Aston Villa

The votes are in and the VMC Forum Posse reckon that the improving, certainly in an attacking sense, Aleksander Kolarov was our star man in the frustrating defeat at Villa

The 25 year old Serbian international is slowly acclimatising to the Premier League and his marauding runs and willing involvement at Villa Park promise more to come, but still doubts remain over his defensive abilities, particularly in cutting out crosses at source.

With City's previously watertight defence suddenly under the spotlight during January's phase of no margin for error fixtures, Roberto Mancini will be looking to Kolarov to seal off the left wing as a matter of urgency.

Meanwhile, as ever, Vincent Kompany and Nigel De Jong are thereabouts in the votes from an instantly forgettable game.

Aleksandar Kolarov 52.63%
Vincent Kompany 26.32%
Nigel De Jong 21.05%
Joe Hart 0%
Jerome Boateng 0%
Kolo Toure 0%
Gareth Barry 0%
David Silva 0%
Toure Yaya 0%
Carlos Tevez 0%
Edin Dzeko 0%
Adam Johnson 0%
