A stubborn but resolute Villa defence held the line after Darren Bent scored on his debut for the Midlands side.

I would have to say City may have blown their title chances and perhaps now we should concentrate on finishing in the top four.

Well done Villa.

Its not sour grapes when I say that Villa were lucky, but the fault lies with City in a ver poor first half showing. Not seen barry have a decent game yet against his old Club and when he was subbed, that when we started to dominate. Credit to Dunney and his mates for keeping us out and he did a top job on Dzeko. Bob take note man for man marking does work.

thanks for the compliments :D bt seriously u r in 3 rd place how can u just write ureself off like that if u carry on consistently getting gd results and teams above u drop points ur right back in it + u still have to play man u anyway i think, and arsenal always drop off at the end of the season and are always too inconsistent for the title so u dont even need to worry about them

Though yesterday was just a bad day for man city. Passed it around nicely but literally got nowhere with not really a clear chance. You will definately get champions league because you are a great team and could of easily won yesterday, good game, frustrating from city's point of view but i wont complain.
