Despite all of Man City’s possession Watford went close as Jose Holebas’ free kick found Richarlison but his header was off target and soon City were ahead.
Kevin de Bruyne’s fine free kick found Aguero who nodded home the opener and four minutes later David Silva crossed for Aguero to tap home his and City’s second.
City made it 3-0 before the break as Aguero turned into the provider to slot the ball into the path of his Brazilian forward partner Jesus. Although he looked in an offside position, the goal stood as Watford were simply battered by City’s star men.

Watford improved in the second half, presumably after a half time rollicking from Marco Silva, but City looked increasingly dangerous on the break as Aguero put a shot wide.

Silva had a shot tipped over by Gomes and from the resulting corner he sent in a cross for Otamendi to nod home.
There was time for Aguero to complete his hat trick, his 10th for Man City, as he jinxed past four defenders before putting in a shot off the far post.
In the final minute of the game Sterling made it 6-0 after winning a penalty and converting the spot kick to compound Watford’s misery.
