Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany was happy to thump Aston Villa for the fans.

The 5-0 win took City back to the Premier League summit.

Kompany said: "Our European form is what makes the picture a little less clear. But it's good to give the victory over Aston Villa to our fans.

"It's probably the most comfortable victory we've had this season against a difficult team.

"It's nice to be back on top of the table but there are so many games still to play. It's nice for now but there are big games to come still."
