16 Sep 2017
Full-time whistle rings around Vicarage Road as Manchester City have humiliated Watford with a 6-0 thumping. Aguero with 3, Otamendi, Sterling and Jesus got themselves one each as City continue their rampant run.
PENALTY TO CITY! Sterling wins a spot-kick after Kabasele takes him down. An easy decision for referee Taylor.
GOAL! Sterling steps up and smashes the ball right into the top corner and leaves the keeper with no chance! 6-0 City.
CLOSE! Nearly a sixth for City as Sterling moves the ball onto his left foot and fires a low shot towards the far corner. It looks destined for the net but takes a slight deflection. Unlucky.
GOAL! Aguero has his third. Aguero surges into the Watford box, weaving past a number of challenges before flicking the ball past Gomes from a tight angle, it hits the post and goes in, despite the best efforts of Kabasele on the line.
Mendy has been up and down City's left flank all afternoon and powers forward again, winning a corner. Sane takes to Sterling on the edge of the box but Deeney snaps in with a firm challenge
Third and final change for the visitors as Silva makes way for Sane. Superb effort from the Spaniard today.
CHANCE! Another City break almost leads to a goal as Aguero bursts forward and tees up Sterling. The winger may be trying to find Aguero in the middle but either way, his low effort drifts wide of the far post.
CHANCE! Watford should be on the scoresheet! A corner is flicked on at the near post and Capoue is unmarked at the back stick but somehow nods over the crossbar. A sitter. Another substitution for the home side as Gray makes way for Deeney.
Substitution for Watford as Chalobah is replaced by Etienne Capoue.
Another substitution for the visitors as Kevin de Bruyne is replaced- a magnificent performance - with Ilkay Gundogan coming in for the Belgian.
GOAL! City grab a fourth! Otamendi rises highest in the Hornets box after Silva's cross put it on a silver platter for the Argentine. Silva wasn't closed down on the byline and punished the home side for it.
First substitution of the game sees Gabriel Jesus make way for Bernardo Silva. And a first substitution for the home side also as Watford bring on Pereyra for Tom Cleverley.
SAVE! Aguero holds up play well and feeds Silva with a back-heel. The Spaniard tries to blast his shot past Gomes from a tight angle but the goalkeeper tips it over.
Watford have certainly improved in the second half - they force another corner as Otamendi clears under no pressure. He needed a shout from his team-mates. Holebas' corner is flicked over the crossbar by Richarlison.
Richarlison takes a knock to the head from Walker and referee Taylor stops play, halting a City counter-attack. The Watford man is fine to continue.
NO PENALTY! Chalobah wants a spot-kick after Otamendi is a little heavy-handed with his challenge in the area following a Watford corner. Referee Anthony Taylor is not interested!
CLOSE! Better from Watford. Holebas storms forward, skipping past Walker and clipping a cross to the far post. It drops to Carrillo and he tries to cut across it with a right-foot strike. But the shot doesn't have enough curl, falling a few yards wide.
We back underway here as Anthony Taylor restarts the match with neither managers opting to make a substitution at half-time as City lead Watford 3-0 at Vicarage Road.
Half-time here at Vicarage Road as pure dominance from City is shown on the scoreboard as they enter the break three goals to the good with Aguero grabbing himself and brace and Jesus getting the third.
YELLOW! Doucoure hauls down Sterling as the City forward is bearing down on Watford's defenders.
GOAL! It's three for City as Jesus puts his name on the score sheet. As Walker picks the ball off the Watford midfield and feeds Aguero before he plays Jesus through the middle for him to finish coolly! Shouts of offside are turned down on Jesus.
City playing out of their skin at the moment, they could easily put another two past Watford in the next few minutes until half time, Watford need to up their game before they get embarrassed.
GOAL! City double their lead! Aguero with his second of the day! Fantastic work down the line from City leads to a fast ball into the box for Silva who plays a first time ball for Aguero to push the ball home! 2-0 City!
YELLOW! Holebas is in the book for a nasty kick out at De Bruyne, who is not pleased with the challenge.
GOAL! City finally break the deadlock, it was just a matter of time. Aguero puts his name on the score sheet following a delicious De Bruyne cross off a free-kick, the Argentine glides in and pushes his header into the near post!
CLOSE! What a chance for the hosts! Holebas whips in a fantastic free-kick from deep and it's right onto the head of Richarilson but the striker nods a yard wide. Poor defending by City and that almost cost them!
Janmaat is okay to continue as we resume play at Vicarage Road as we remain goalless with 20 minutes left to play.
Break in play as Janmaat puts his body on the line to clear a cross and takes a whack to the head while doing so.. He receives more treatment off the pitch.
CHANCE! Another opportunity for City, this time for Aguero, but the striker screws his volley wide after a corner from the left is defected into his path. At the moment it's only a matter of time before the visitors score.
Twenty minutes gone here at Vicarage Road and The Sky Blues the much better of the two teams so far as they pile the pressure on the Watford defense which has been relatively strong this season, conceding in only one of their opening four fixtures.
SHOT! Watford's first glimpse of goal comes from a partially cleared long throw which falls to Doucoure on the edge of the area who scored a screamer against Southampton last weekend, but his first-time effort is deflected wide.
CLOSE! Super by City. Silva switches play to find De Bruyne on the right and he finds Sterling with a perfectly-executed volley, Sterling miss-hits his pass and it falls kindly for Fernandinho, who strikes well first-time but Gomes gathers.
More bright attacking play by City as Aguero steals possession and tees up De Bruyne on the right. The Belgian digs out a cross and it comes to Mendy at the back post but the full-back blasts over on the half-volley.
City with a blistering start at Vicarage Road as they move the ball up-field at speed, they win themselves and early corner which De Bruyne whips in and finds Fernandinho whose header misses the target.
CLOSE! City come flying out of the traps! Walker gets forward and slips through Sterling, who cuts back towards Silva but Watford smuggle it away for a corner, which is then cleared.
Referee Anthony Taylor gets us underway here at Vicarage Road for what looks certain to be a feisty encounter as Watford looking for back-to-back league wins while the visitors go in search of their third win on the bounce.
