Manchester City breeze past an under-strength Aston Villa 3-0

Manchester City 3 – Aston Villa 0 (FA Cup 5th round, March 2, 2011) (Longer highlights) Poor defending from Villa saw a 5th minute Kolorov corner actually hit Clark’s hand only for Yaya Toure to smash the ball in the net and avoid any need for a penalty. Villa were in a world of pain after 25 minutes as Yaya Toure freed Mario Balotelli with superb ball over defence and the moody Italian striker showed his quality with a lovely half-volley into the top corner. On 70 minutes David Silva sealed the win, lashing home the third.
