Sergio Aguero’s strike and Rodri’s header from a corner in the 20th and 30th minutes respectively saw City cruising early in the encounter.

But Villa got a lifeline when Mbwana Samatta headed in from Anwar El Ghazi’s cross four minutes before the break.

Both sides searched on throughout the second half for a goal to no avail, as City held on to seal the triumph.
