It must be tough for Man City to motivate themselves just now, the title looks lost and they should comfortably finish in second place.
Aston Villa on the other hand have everything to play for and this had the makings of an upset on paper, but City have gone to Villa Park and blown their opponents away in the first 30 minutes.
Ryad Mahrez put them firmly in control with a excellently taken double in a matter of minutes. Firstly he finished smartly at the near post after some great individual play:

The second came after some disastrous defending from Villa, but Aguero does well to keep it in and it’s well taken by the Algerian:
Sergio Aguero made it 3-0 before the half hour mark, so this one looks done already. Aston Villa really need to improve defensively if they want to stay up.
