Manchester — Sergio Aguero scored two goals and missed a penalty as Manchester City used a dominant second-half performance to thrash last-place Aston Villa 4-0 and revive their Premier League title challenge on Saturday.

All the goals came after halftime, as Villa imploded at Etihad Stadium to slip closer to relegation with their 19th loss in 29 games this season.

Yaya Toure's deflected shot gave City the lead in the 48th minute, before Aguero scored in the 50th when Micah Richards' attempted clearance ricocheted in off the striker.

Aguero exchanged passes with David Silva to volley in for 3-0 in the 60th and Raheem Sterling converted Jesus Navas' cross in the 66th for the fourth goal.

Aguero was denied a hat trick after striking a 73rd-minute penalty against the post.
