  • CITY GO IN FRONT! Foden receives the ball from Gundogan on the left flank, and he takes his time before crossing precisely to an unmarked Sterling, who applies the finishing touch from close range! Too easy for the champions, as Watford sat off passively and invited them to score: 1-0 to City!

  • CITY DOUBLE UP! Just as the Watford fans were gaining a slight sliver of encouragement, City go two ahead, as another Bachmann save eventually runs into other path of Bernardo Silva, who fires clinically into the net from the right side of the area. The champions go 2-0 up and give Watford a mountain to climb!

  • WHAT A STRIKE! Silva receives the ball on the right side of the area, skins Rose - who has struggled to handle both the Portuguese playmaker and Sterling all game - and effortlessly curls the ball into the top left corner with a wondrous left-footed strike. Another excellent goal to follow his strike at Villa Park, and City now lead 3-0!

  • WATFORD GET ONE BACK! Half-time substitute Hernandez does brilliantly to cut back inside from the right and drill a low shot into the bottom corner of the City net, helping his side pull back within two goals of the champions. Surely it's too late for an improbable comeback? Watford 1-3 Man City.
