Manchester City Blow Watford Away With Stunning Performance At The Etihad

Manchester City Blow Watford Away With Stunning Performance At The Etihad

If you thought Manchester City were entering a blip following their shock 3-2 defeat to Norwich a week ago, think again.

Having bounced back to winning ways with a 3-0 away victory over Shakhtar Donetsk in midweek, the champions ran riot over Watford at the Etihad - with Bernardo Silva scoring a hat-trick in a 7-0 thumping.

In just 18 first half minutes, Pep Guardiola's side smashed five past the Hornets - with David Silva, Sergio Aguero, Riyad Mahrez, Bernardo Silva and Nicolas Otamendi all getting on the scoresheet as City went goal crazy.

David Silva's opener came inside the first minute after a vintage gorgeously-shaped cross by Kevin De Bruyne, before Aguero bagged his 100th Premier League goal at the Etihad from the spot.

Riyad Mahrez added a third with his second in a week, before Bernardo Silva (3) and Otamendi got in on the act.

Just absolute madness from City, who were so rampant that Watford were forced to replace debutant Dimitri Foulquier just 33 minutes.

Given City hit Watford for six in the FA Cup final at Wembley in May, the Hertfordshire outfit are probably sick of playing City now.
