Machester City routed Aston Villa, 4-1, to overtake Manchester United in the Premier League Standings. City got a big help from Liverpool that limited Man U to a 1-1 draw with minority owner Lebron James on the stands.

21-year-old Mario Balotelli opened up the scoring for City at the 28th minute. Adam Johnson, Vincent Kompany and James Milner added goals in the second half to deal Aston Villa its first loss this season. Stephen Warnock accounted for the lone goal of Villa.

The win gave City a 2-point lead over their cross-city rivals. The two top teams will have a Manchester Derby at Old Trafford on the 23rd.
