Manchester City 8 – 0 Watford



Manchester City scored five goals in a devastating opening 18-minute spell as they responded to their shock defeat at Norwich with an 8-0 demolition of Watford on Saturday.

David Silva opened the scoring with just 52 seconds on the clock before Sergio Aguero put the champions two up from the penalty spot on seven minutes with his 100th Premier League goal at the Etihad Stadium.

City added a third on 12 minutes through a deflected Riyad Mahrez free-kick before Bernardo Silva’s stooping header and Nicolas Otamendi’s close-range tap-in saw Pep Guardiola’s side race into a five-goal lead faster than any side in Premier League history.
