Pep Guardiola's side struggled to get going but eventually broke the deadlock when Raheem Sterling scored in the first minute of the second half. 

Villa had done well until that point but they were unable to live with City from there. David Silva added the second, getting a touch on a Kevin de Bruyne effort after good work from Benjamin Mendy. 

Ilkay Gundogan completed the scoring in the 70th minute for City, who saw Fernandinho sent off in the 87th minute.
