Just when we thought it was all over, someone decided to switch back time. Just when they seemed to have thrown away the Barclays Premier League, Manchester City woke up and remembered that they are a fairly decent side.

It may still not too late, of course. The great enemies of city of Old Trafford remain Favorites to win this Championship. But after the horrors of Stoke, Sunderland and Arsenal, Roberto Mancini of type and brushed aside West Bromwich team returned without breaking sweat.

As city ambled to victory, there was even a goal for Carlos Tevez on the occasion of his first start since September. That came on the hour after Sergio Aguero-a more reliable South American striker had scored in either half to put them-two objectives.

West Brom were quite miserable but city credit for benefit. They showed no mercy, David Silva scoring the fourth with 25 minutes to go.

With Mario Balotelli suspended after his afternoon of madness at the Emirates, it was clear that Mancini would have to change things up front. Tevez had returned since the contribution from his exile was limited to cameo by the bank. Here, his first real chance to Show City was finally what they have missed.

City, perhaps feeling less pressure after United had opened what looked like a title-winning lead, much better football played during the first half hour. West Bromwich could not been this season no mugs but near the ball for much of the first half.

Aguero, who himself looked after his return from injury on Sunday, not seemed to find the rhythm of this game much faster and worried the defense of West Brom with a direct run in the second minute.

On that occasion, his shot was blocked but within four more minutes he had scored the first goal of the game and the 25th of his debut season city.

Aguero from deep but this time again reed which he advanced from a more central position. Sensing that West Brom had backed off a bit, he let fly with a low right-foot shot that zipped over goalkeeper Ben Foster and in his right angle.

Almost immediately, it was possible to lift the tension a bit on the Etihad. City started playing football what the only surprise was that the enterprising and not immediately yield more targets.

West Bromwich were totally not a threat in the first half. A low cross from the right on the front of Joe Hart’s fizzed all purpose but that was about it. On the other hand, the team captain Jonas Olsson had Roy Hodgson to thank for his only one goal down during the break.

City began with United drawing at Wigan on half the time, the second period sensing that they can see a sense of light in the title race. Within a few minutes, they came close to adding a second goal as Silva crossed from the right and Samir Nasri, who had been ground to a halt in the offsetting side, then volleyed a corner.

Silva then a ball played by the Middle, Gareth Barry to the breaking up and strike West Brom only for the ricochet of Billy Jones. The city fans called for a penalty but referee Kevin Friend was unmoved.

Than news of a goal for Wigan filtered by and that was soon followed by city the second of the night. Once more was the scorer, moving on to a pass Aguero of Nasri to score about Foster with his right instep.

If the target back to the Etihad-Poznan short celebration the followers here not done it for a while-city moved through the gears, Nasri abort from the left to shoot in goal and inches wide.
