Watford 0-6 Manchester City

"Of course the result is important, but so is the way we played". Miguel Britos serves the second of his three-match ban after being sent off against Brighton. Gabriel Jesus, Nicolas Otamendi and Raheem Sterling were the other scorers for the visitors at Vicarage Road. Eleven against 10 was much better but sometimes it's not easy to play 11 against 10, and we did it so well.

The hosts have a long injury-list, and they will be missing the likes of Mauro Zarate, Kiko Femenia, Younes Kaboul, Craig Cathcart, Sebastian Prodl and Roberto Pereyra.

Manchester City have reached the top of the Premier League table for the time being and will next face West Brom in the EFL Cup third round on Wednesday night.

For City, Vincent Kompany won't be available after picking up an injury during the worldwide break.

Reports from last season suggested Aguero was heading towards the exit door at the Etihad Stadium to make way for the exciting Brazilian talent.

Three consecutive clean sheets, no doubt aided by the big money signings of Ederson, Kyle Walker and Benjamin Mendy, ensure that City will feature heavily come the conclusion of the season.

Jesus has scored three goals in four Premier League starts. He has only lost two out of eleven games while in charge of Hull City and Watford.

Thanks to his incredible display at Watford, the top points scorer in Fantasy Premier League is now Sergio Aguero. This includes an exciting 3-3 tie against Liverpool to open the season. Set to be peppered by a barrage of shots on Saturday, thus, Gomes will have to be on his guard at all times to earn his side a point, and maybe even more.

Manchester City head to fellow unbeaten side Watford on Saturday (today), aiming to maintain their impressive form that has seen them win by an aggregate 9-0 scoreline in their last two matches.

Marco Silva's Watford will be a huge test of City's title credentials, with the Hornets proving to be tough customers thus far.

Watford's record against Man City is poor, to say the least.

The Premier League match was over by half-time thanks to two goals from Sergio Aguero and another by Gabriel Jesus. Minutes after a denied penalty shout from Newcastle, Lascelles rose high over the defense on a corner to meet another Ritchie cross and nod it into goal for the 2-1 lead and the eventual win.
