Pep Guardiola pleased with Manchester City goalfest

2:40 | Soccer         Transfer window winners and losers PSG up Arsenal down

Watford's defensive crisis has left Marco Silva scratching his head and the fans with a nasty sense of deja vu. Last week, they registered an impressive 2-0 win at Southampton.

But he impressed as he was given a second City start in Wednesday's emphatic 4-0 win at Feyenoord in the Champions League.

Sergio Aguero scored a hat trick and there were also goals for Gabriel Jesus, Nicolas Otamendi and Raheem Sterling as Ctiy moved to the top of the table for 24 hours at least. Still, it is a dream of Watford to defeat Manchester City in the EPL.

Watford will be without a host of defenders once more, giving boss Silva a selection headache ahead of the encounter.

"Of course the result is important, but so is the way we played".

Craig Cathcart (knee injury) and Miguel Britos (suspended) are also out but the manager singled out Kaboul as the player Watford could miss the most on the weekend. However, a lack of complaints from Watford's players perhaps reflected an acceptance of their fate.

For City, Vincent Kompany won't be available after picking up an injury during the worldwide break.

Jesus added a third before half-time - his fifth of the season - when he drilled home from Aguero's cut-back, despite tame calls for offside from the Hornets defence.

He also told reporters that the exact deployment locations of the de-escalation control forces was yet to be determined. A joint statement said that the zones will be formed for a six-month period and will be extended if necessary.

Last season, however, City won only two of the six league games they played following a European group stage match, and Guardiola wants them to show an improvement.

However, he is yet to feature so far this season, as he was named on the bench for their first three matches before then missing out entirely against Liverpool last time out, reportedly due to coaching staff being concerned with a perceived lack of fitness - claims rebuffed by his agent.

Watford might not have attracted big headlines this season, but they remain one of the three undefeated sides in the league. Huddersfield (18 mins) and Manchester United (2 mins) are the only teams that have been behind for fewer minutes.

Swansea brought Tottenham back to earth in a scoreless draw at Wembley, three days after Spurs tore apart Borussia Dortmund. The Hornets are playing with a lot of confidence at the moment.

Thanks to his incredible display at Watford, the top points scorer in Fantasy Premier League is now Sergio Aguero.

The Portuguese pulled off an incredible display against Liverpool in a insane 3-3 draw to start the season, with last weekend's long-range efforts from Abdoulaye Doucoure and Daryl Janmaat against Southampton bringing their fans another three points to cheer.

Unbeaten Watford can go top for the first time in 35 years by beating Manchester City today. "What Silva did at Hull City was incredible".

Man City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne reckons the intense competition for places at the club is helping to maintain their standards on the pitch.
