Manchester City are up to third place in the English Premier football League after thumping Sunderland 5-0 this morning, with five different players scoring.

City have overtaken Chelsea and strengthened their grip on a Champions League spot which is a priority for their manager Roberto Mancini.

Second-placed Arsenal and Blackburn Rovers played out a scoreless draw leaving Manchester United seven points clear in the race for the premiership.
