Carlos Tevez scored for the first time in 11 months as Manchester City sparked back into life to keep their faint title hopes alive with a 4-0 win over West Brom.

Sergio Aguero struck twice and David Silva was on target in a routine defeat of West Brom as City, perhaps belatedly, showed why they were once firm favourites for the Barclays Premier League crown.

Manchester United's 1-0 defeat at Wigan meant the gap at the top was cut to five points, and with a derby to come the game may not yet be up, but it could still be too little too late.
