Pep Guardiola’s side gained an historical treble of domestic trophies closing season with the Premier League and FA Cup, and they totally deserved their triumph in spite of a spirited effort from Aston Villa.
Manchester City appeared like they would stroll to victory when Sergio Aguero’s strike and Rodri’s header from a nook that was hotly contested through Villa put them in entire control inside 30 minutes.
Villa, while strictly 2nd best, offered themselves a lifeline when Mbwana Samatta headed in from Anwar El Ghazi’s cross 4 minutes before the interval.
City persisted to dominate as they sought a third goal and Villa have been agonizingly close to forcing extra time when Bjorn Engels saw his header from a nook turned on to the woodwork beautifully with the aid of keeper Claudio Bravo.
It was their final chance and City closed out the win their superiority merited.
