Watford 0 Manchester City 6: Aguero hat-trick puts Guardiola's men top

Connie Andrews | 17 September, 2017, 00:44

Last season, however, City won only two of the six league games they played following a European group stage match, and Guardiola wants them to show an improvement.

Guardiola's side have scored 15 goals in their last three fixtures following emphatic wins over Liverpool in the Premier League and Feyenoord in the Champions League.

"Aguero's numbers speak for themselves - he is incredible", Guardiola told the BBC. While the start to the season wasn't quite as strong for the shot stopper - he let in three goals against Liverpool - he has not had to pick the ball out of his net even once since then.

Pep Guardiola has saluted Sergio Aguero as a Manchester City "legend" as he closes in on the club's record goal haul.

Watford withstood City's early pressure, with goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes saving well from Fernandinho and Christian Kabasele making a superb tackle to deny Aguero a one-on-one after 18 minutes.

City were a joy to watch today in the flawless advertisement for Pep Guardiola's infamous brand of one-touch possession football.

Watford's defensive crisis has left Marco Silva scratching his head and the fans with a nasty sense of deja vu. He's combined superbly with Gabriel Jesus, and he scored a hat trick against Watford on Saturday.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager's first season at the Etihad Stadium ended in May without a trophy as they finished third in the Premier League, with City repeatedly failing to win matches despite dominating chances and possession. I am learning a lot from them and I hope I can learn much more.

Defence is the worst hit area with five key first-team players unavailable.

In other game Rafa Benitez returned to the bench after surgery as Newcastle secured a 2 - 1 win over Stoke City.

Aguero then delivered an awesome run into the box and then rolled the ball past Gomes for a fifth, before Raheem Sterling dusted himself down after winning a penalty to make it six. Last season, they all had to work out the kinks as they transitioned into Pep Guardiola's system.

Last season, City completed a double over Watford without conceding a goal. If Watford win they will go top of the top division for only the second time in their history and the first since, of course, 1982.

"Watford are just two points behind us".
