Aston Villa vs. Manchester City: Premier League Live Score, Highlights and Recap

Dusan LucicCorrespondent IIMarch 3, 2013

Aston Villa vs. Manchester City

Full time scoreline:

Aston Villa 0, Manchester City 1

Carlos Tevez 45+1'

The hosts started the match brightly, pressuring their opponents high on the pitch and creating several chances, but quickly faded away. 

Manchester City slowly grew into the game and were rewarded for their efforts in added time of the first half, as Tevez scored the only goal of the match, following a defensive error from Aston Villa captain Ciaran Clark.

The Citizens continued playing in the same manner in the second half, dominating possession and not allowing Villa much time on the ball. Consequently, Christian Benteke was completely cut off from the rest of the team and failed to have a meaningful impact on the match.

The Villans tried to push forward in the closing stages, but it was already too late for them.
