Tevez keeps City’s faint title hopes alive

Carlos Tevez kept Manchester City’s slim hopes of retaining the Premier League title alive as he earned Manchester City a 1-0 victory which left Aston Villa still rooted in the relegation zone on Monday.

Tevez punished Ciaran Clark’s calamitous mistake in first-half added time at Villa Park to enable second-placed City to move within 12 points of runaway leaders Manchester United.

It was far from a vintage performance from Roberto Mancini’s team, but the victory at least preserved their faint hopes of catching bitter rivals United. Villa, meanwhile, remain in 18th and were once again left to rue a costly lapse of concentration from one of their players at a key moment. Their forthcoming matches against fellow strugglers Reading and QPR now take on even further importance as Paul Lambert’s team try to beat the drop.
