Argentinian contingent keeps City in the hunt

Goals from Pablo Zabaleta, Sergio Agüero and Martín Demichelis helped Manchester City FC see off West Bromwich Albion FC 3-1 to keep their title hopes alive.

Manchester City FC moved six points of the Premier League summit with a game in hand after posting a 3-1 home success against relegation-threatened West Bromwich Albion FC.

A sequence of one win in four league outings has seriously dented the Citizens' title aspirations, and a spirited response was paramount. Pablo Zabaleta provided it three minutes in, reacting first after Sergio Agüero's shot was beaten away by visiting goalkeeper Ben Foster. Agüero quickly made it two, finding the corner with precision after traversing the edge of the penalty area.

Graham Dorrans gave the visitors hope with a sublime volley, but their joy was short-lived as Martín Demichelis finished off a flick-on at the other end after 36 minutes. Manuel Pellegrini's side seldom looked in danger of conceding after the interval, yet their night ended on a sour note when Spain midfielder David Silva was taken off on a stretcher with an ankle injury.
