London: Carlos Tevez kept Manchester City's slim hopes of retaining the Premier League title alive as he earned Manchester City a 1-0 victory which left Aston Villa still rooted in the relegation zone on Monday.

Tevez punished Ciaran Clark's calamitous mistake in first-half added time at Villa Park to enable second-placed City to move within 12 points of runaway leaders Manchester United.

It was far from a vintage performance from Roberto Mancini's team, but the victory at least preserved their faint hopes of catching bitter rivals United.
