City cut gap with Villa win

04 March 2013 10:17

Carlos Tevez kept alive Manchester City's slim hopes of retaining their Barclays Premier League title with the only goal at relegation-threatened Aston Villa.

Tevez, who replaced knee injury victim Sergio Aguero, broke the deadlock in first-half injury-time after a mistake by Villa defender Ciaran Clark.

Victory again cut runaway leaders Manchester United's advantage to a still formidable 12 points with only 10 games remaining.
