6:13 am on 15 April 2012

Carlos Tevez has hit a hat-trick as Manchester City crushed Norwich 6-1 to pile the pressure on English football's premier league leaders Manchester United.

City have moved within two points of title rivals United who now need to beat Aston Villa at Old Trafford tomorrow to re-establish their five-point advantage at the top.

After City's defeat at Arsenal last weekend, it was widely expected that United would cruise to their 20th English league crown, but the champions' midweek stumble at Wigan and back-to-back wins featuring 10 goals for City has breathed new life into the title race.
