Johnny On The Spot: And so the Home Counties street parties are put on hold for another fortnight as City record a third straight win since Southamptongate bolstered by a fourteenth league clean sheet of this title hangover season...It was a hard fought one too. Perhaps unneccessarily so, as a game young Villa side, now deep in relegation trouble zipped the ball about with endeavour but in truth could have lost more heavily had City's hard working forwards had their sights more focused. Our season's achilles heel alongside a relentless injury list...Noticeably, Villa appeared to tire heavily towards the end of each half yet maybe that was down to their high tempo efforts. Factually, not many sides come close to outpassing Man City and Villa put together 412 to The Champions 478 in this encounter...Ultimately Roberto Mancini's 106th win as City boss was sealed by resurgent Carlos Tevez's 3rd goal in 3 games and was as coolly taken as any of the 69 El Apache has scored for The Blues...The win didn't come without a price though. Young Jack Rodwell has been playing superbly but his season is back on the rocks after what Mancio confirmed is yet another hamstring injury. Such rank bad luck had been a major source of frustration to David Moyes in recent seasons and it's Everton next up for City. The side who had such a big say in the destination of last season's title will be chomping at the bit to have their say again in two weeks time. That game should be a cracker with City gathering momentum. Stats Courtesy Sky Sports

We need to finish teams off when we're in the ascendancy, the defence dealt very well with what Villa could muster late on.

On a different night the score could have been 1-4 or 5. We looked lethargic for the first 20 minutes and Villa threw everything they had at us for the last 10. Otherwise, we should have been home and hosed by the 4th save Guzan had to make or the 2nd time the ball came back off the inside of the post. Give them their due, Villa certainly took heart from only being 1 goal down and made a game of it, but it would have been a travesty for City to have dropped any points. Good luck to the Villa for the rest of the season.

"On a different night the score could have been 1-4 or 5." Worryingly though fifth, those nights rarely seem to come along, we have grinded our way through games like this so much this season, often resulting in draws that has us far behind United. Must improve a lot next season but happy for the 3 points tonight.
