EPL: Man City Back On Top


Manchester City regained their top spot in the English Premier League on Sunday after a Joleon Lescott goal saw them grab a narrow 1-0 win over Aston Villa at the Villa Park.

Lescott’s goal was against boyhood heroes Aston Villa. Manchester United’s 2-1 win over Liverpool on Saturday had put City under pressure and in second position, but Lescott finally eased their nerves after dominating the game when he hooked in ex-Villa midfielder Gareth Barry’s far-post header after 62 minutes.

The visitors dominated possession in the first half but could not make the most of that supremacy until halfway through the second term as they finished the match in a fairly nervy manner with Villa pressing hard for a leveler.

City now top the table with 60 points from 25 games, two ahead of United while toothless Villa are looking anxiously over their shoulders down in 15th.
