Edin Dzeko’s right footed shot, converting a Pablo Zabaleta low cross on 64 minutes opened the scoring at a rain-soaked Etihad Stadium.
Dzeko was on hand to tap home again eight minutes later to double Man City‘s lead, Stevan Jovetic added a third late on, before Yaya Toure powered through the Villa defence for a fourth deep into injury time.

The result means City leapfrog Liverpool into first place, now needing just a point on the last day of the season to clinch the title, barring a record Reds win over Newcastle, requiring a 13 goal margin. A win for City would win the league.
So we go to Anfield on the last day of the season with the title mathematically possible. That's some achievement. pic.twitter.com/Ngg00pCFRT

Liverpool‘s on-loan striker Fabio Borini got the second for the Black Cats after Jack Colback had given them an early lead.
Norwich City are effectively relegated.
