Pep Guardiola‘s side knew victory over the bottom-placed side would pile pressure on Premier League leaders Liverpool.
Rodrigo broke the deadlock in the 14th minute after skipping beyond a midfield challenge and driving into the box before passing the ball into the far corner.
The pair of creative midfielders worked an opening that was eventually tapped home at the back post by Julian Alvarez.
Our dominance was illustrated by the whopping 938 passes completed - the second most ever recorded in the Premier League only behind our total of 942 against Swansea City in 2018.
The victory sets the seal on an unforgettable 2023.
As well as lifting the Big Five trophies, we have not suffered a home defeat this year, winning 25 of our 28 games across all competitions at the Etihad.
