  • That's all from this live commentary - report, reaction and ratings to follow. Thanks for joining us.

  • There's no stopping Man City it seems. Cardiff gave them a good run for their money at times today, but their strength and awesome goal threat saw them to victory comfortably in the end. The Welsh club looked better than a bottom-of-the-table team though.

  • Full-time: Manchester City 4 Cardiff 2.

  • Yaya Toure named man of the match here - can't argue with that.

  • CAMPBELL GOAL (90+3) - from a corner, the ball comes across the face of goal and Campbell knocks it in to reduce the arrears.

  • GOAL! Manchester City 4 Cardiff 2 (Campbell 90+3)

  • A minimum of four additional minutes will be played.

  • Milner bustles into the area and almost catches out Marshall from a tight angle.

  • Cardiff need Marshall to make another save as the ball threatens to trickle over his goalline. The Etihad attendance today is 47,213.

  • A great stat courtesy of Infostrada: Sergio Aguero has just scored Man City's 900th Premier League goal. Their first was scored by David White in a 1-1 home draw vs QPR on 17 August, 1992.

  • Final Man City change - Clichy ON, Navas OFF (82).

  • Second change for Man City - Milner ON, Silva OFF (80).

  • AGUERO GOAL (79) - Toure, near the halfway line, loops a ball into the right channel for Aguero to run onto. He tricks Caulker and finishes superbly past Marshall. 4-1.

  • GOAL! Manchester City 4 (Aguero 79) Cardiff 1

  • Cardiff make their final change - Wolff Eikrem ON, Gunnarsson OFF (78).

  • YAYA TOURE GOAL (76) - having appeared to give the ball away to Noone inside his own half, Toure then manages to get it back and strides forward. He plays a one-two with Aguero on the edge of the box and then fires home low past Marshall. 3-1.

  • GOAL! Manchester City 3 (Yaya Toure 76) Cardiff 1

  • Kolarov is booked for a foul on Noone (75).

  • Aguero was sent scampering away towards goal by Dzeko but he couldn't get an initial shot away and after pivoting through 360 degrees, he fires over.

  • Man City are still looking the more likely to score - they're maintaining a steady 66% possession percentage and are now up to 15 shots, while Cardiff have had four - although all of those have been on target.
