Manchester City took a great stride towards their second Premier League trophy yesterday morning (Singapore time), moving so close that they can smell the silver polish.

City romp to a 4-0 win over Aston Villa, but it could have been so different if Edin Dzeko had not calmed the nerves with a brace just after the hour.

Liverpool’s title challenge was built on breathtaking reckless abandon, but City’s was based on overwhelming strength in every department.

No injuries could hurt them, no loss of form could slow them.

In this, there was no better example than Bosnia striker Dzeko, who had struggled to cement his first-team place but frequently stepped in with the crucial goals when his teammates were injured or suffered from a dip in form.
