Despite having Gareth Barry sent off in the 73rd minute,first-half goals from Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure and a second-half penalty from James Milner helped City to a comprehensive victory.     

They move to 48 points from 20 games, three clear of rivals Manchester United who have played one match fewer and six clear of Tottenham who had Jermain Defoe's clinical finish to thank for their victory at White Hart Lane.

Sunderland maintained their good form since the arrival of new manager Martin O'Neill with a 4-1 win over struggling Wigan Athletic.
