  1. Full Time. That's it. Brave effort from Villa but they didn't have the quality to get anything against the Premier League champions. Carlos Tevez's goal enough to separate the sides.

  2. 90+4

    Delph booked for handball.

  3. 90+3

    Dawkins sees a shot blocked.

  4. 90+2

    Villa trying everything. Benteke with a header across goal from Holman's cross.

  5. There will be four minutes of added time.

  6. 90+1

    Barry on for Silva.

  7. 89

    Milner tries to find Dzeko with a low cross from the left but Guzan is down well to claim at his feet.

  8. 87

    Milner tries to be too cute as he flicks the ball towards Nasri as Villa can break. Benteke is soon down in the box claiming a penalty but the referee waves away the claims. It was a decent shout as Nastasic hung a leg out there.

  9. 86

    El Ahmadi on for Westwood.

  10. 85

    Nasri shoots wide at the near post.

  11. 84

    Dawkins on for Weimann.

  12. 81

    Holman tries to thread a pass into the feet of Benteke inside the box but Kolo Toure is quicker to react.

  13. 80

    Great skill by Delph to get away from two. When the ball comes to Bennett he crosses from deep to Weimann on the far side but he can only strike the bouncing ball well over the bar.

  14. 79

    Scrappy passage of play in the middle of the field. Villa relying on the big ball up to Benteke but he looks to be tiring.

  15. 77

    Westwood makes a hash of a simple pass.

  16. 77

    But it comes to nothing and Villa break.

  17. 76

    Milner shows superb skill to beat his man and win a corner.

  18. 75

    Nasri on for the goalscorer Tevez.

  19. 75

    Benteke ruled to have fouled Nastasic in an aerial challenge. Yellow card is as much for his reaction.

  20. 74

    A reminder of the threat City possess. Villa huffing and puffing without showing anything like the clinical threat of the visitors.
