Birmingham: Manchester City were brought down to earth in abrupt fashion on Saturday as Aston Villa stormed back from behind to record a rousing 3-2 victory in the Premier League.

Edin Dzeko restored the lead for Manuel Pellegrini's side after Karim Al Ehmadi equalised for Villa early in the second half, only for quick-fire goals from Leandro Bacuna and Andreas Weimann to snatch an unlikely victory.
