MANCHESTER, England - Manchester City narrowed the gap on English Premier League leaders Liverpool to six points yesterday with a comfortable 3-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion at Eastlands.

Pablo Zabaleta, Sergio Aguero and Martin Demichelis all scored for City as three different Argentine players netted in an EPL match for the first time.

West Brom pulled the score back to 2-1 through Graham Dorrans but, ultimately, City had too much quality.

City will close further on Liverpool should they win their game in hand, although they still need the Merseyside club to drop points in their remaining three games if they are to take the title.

Manuel Pellegrini, City manager, responded to his side's 2-2 draw with Sunderland with three changes as Gael Clichy, David Silva and Edin Dzeko came in for Aleksandar Kolarov, James Milner and Alvaro Negredo.
