Foden Scores Hat-Trick as Man City Defeats Villa

Manchester City continued their impressive form as they defeated Aston Villa 4-1 at the Etihad Stadium. Phil Foden was the star of the show, scoring a sensational hat-trick to take his tally to 21 goals this season. City took the lead through Rodri’s goal, but Villa equalized soon after with a low finish from Jhon Duran.

Foden then took charge of the game, scoring a low free-kick just before half-time, followed by two more goals in the second half to complete his hat-trick. City’s win leaves them level on points with Liverpool and a point behind Arsenal in the Premier League table. Meanwhile, Villa suffered a disappointing night, missing key players and losing goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez to illness just before kick-off.
