  1. That's all from this live commentary - report, reaction and ratings to follow. Thanks for joining us.

  2. There's no stopping Man City it seems. Cardiff gave them a good run for their money at times today, but their strength and awesome goal threat saw them to victory comfortably in the end. The Welsh club looked better than a bottom-of-the-table team though.

  3. FT

    Full-time: Manchester City 4 Cardiff 2.

  4. 90+4

    Yaya Toure named man of the match here - can't argue with that.

    Cardiff need Marshall to make another save as the ball threatens to trickle over his goalline. The Etihad attendance today is 47,213.

  10. 84

    A great stat courtesy of Infostrada: Sergio Aguero has just scored Man City's 900th Premier League goal. Their first was scored by David White in a 1-1 home draw vs QPR on 17 August, 1992.

    YAYA TOURE GOAL (76) - having appeared to give the ball away to Noone inside his own half, Toure then manages to get it back and strides forward. He plays a one-two with Aguero on the edge of the box and then fires home low past Marshall. 3-1.

    GOAL! Manchester City 3 (Yaya Toure 76) Cardiff 1

    Kolarov is booked for a foul on Noone (75).

    Aguero was sent scampering away towards goal by Dzeko but he couldn't get an initial shot away and after pivoting through 360 degrees, he fires over.

  20. 73

    Man City are still looking the more likely to score - they're maintaining a steady 66% possession percentage and are now up to 15 shots, while Cardiff have had four - although all of those have been on target.
