City run riot
Manchester City moved above Chelsea into third place in the Premier League after a crushing 5-0 victory over Sunderland at Eastlands on Sunday.
Adam Johnson marked his first league start for almost three months by opening the scoring in the ninth minute before Carlos Tevez doubled the lead six minutes later from the penalty spot.
It was the Argentina striker's 19th in the league this season and David Silva capped another highly impressive display by adding the third before substitute Patrick Vieira got the fourth.
Yaya Toure completed Sunderland's misery in the 73rd minute and ensured City moved to within three points of second-placed Arsenal with seven games remaining.
Johnson broke the deadlock in the ninth minute, the England international finishing off a quality move with an equally impressive finish.
It was started by Toure, who swapped passes with Johnson before his reverse pass found the winger bursting into the penalty area to shoot past Simon Mignolet with a low finish.
And six minutes later it was 2-0 after Tevez beat Sunderland's Belgium international keeper from the penalty spot after Phil Bardsley had clattered into the striker inside the area.
It was too easy for City, who were watched by Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson ahead of his team's FA Cup semifinal with City.
Once again it was Silva who was pulling the strings for City, the Spaniard's clipped pass over the top of the Sunderland's over-worked defence shortly before half time only narrowly beating Tevez's outstretched foot.
