DREAM TEAM POINTS Watford 0 Man City 6

"They need to look forward and prepare well for the next match".

Pep Guardiola wants Manchester City to pay tribute to Sergio Aguero when the Argentine "legend" becomes their record goalscorer.

"Sergio showed again what a good guy he is".

Sterling than completed the rout, slamming home an 88th-minute penalty after he was brought down in the box by Kabasele.

David Wagner's men thought they had won it when Kachunga rifled home and video replays suggested the effort may have been wrongly disallowed.

It was truly delightful to watch (unless you're a Watford fan, that is).

"But he knows what the gap is to improve as a football player, he has to win the duels".

The hosts' resistance gave way just a minute later, however, as a pinpoint free kick delivery from the impressive Kevin De Bruyne was nodded home by Aguero.

"Day by day I say thank you to the club - to all the people involved for buying these players".

His return meant even more to the 26-year-old than the brilliance of City's display. Silva, though, is still a vital cog in that Citizens team. Though, they are standing at the second position now in the points table by winning two matches with eight-plus goals difference.

The Premier League may still be in it's infancy this season, but after the game Pep Guardiola was about how important goal difference may be in title race v Man United. "He is a very intelligent player, and it is a pleasure to have him with us".

"John Stones, there is no doubt about his quality", he said.

That was 17 goals scored by the South American strike partnership in the last 10 games. When the Belgian worldwide is absence, usually through injury, City are very suspect in defence.

DF Nicolas Otamendi, 8 - The defender was never put under real pressure but did what he had to do in playing his part in City's third clean sheet in a row. When they did have to defend, Barcelona had centre-backs Carles Puyol and Gerard Pique who were a superb partnership.

"He's a fighter and he helps us in many many ways". He led the pressing from the front, with which Guardiola was delighted, and dropped back into midfield as City hogged possession. When the coach asks him to play on the right side, the left side, as an offensive midfielder, a more defensive midfielder, to cause attacks, to finish.

Bookmakers have cut the odds on Manchester duo City and United, and already they are suggesting the Premier League title is unlikely to go anywhere else. The Catalan boss can also rotate his squad, with a number of expensive options available from the bench.
