EPL Wrap: Manchester City score six of the best in Watford rout

The manner in which they swept Watford away suggests the subject will not be raised very often this season. Recording a comfortable victory over Brighton and Hove Albion on the opening weekend, before needing a last-gasp victor from Raheem Sterling to seal a come-from-behind win over Bournemouth last month.

Pep Guardiola once again compared Manchester City to his great Barcelona sides after it beat Watford 6-0.

Aaron Mooy's Huddersfield team held on for a 1-1 draw against Leicester City to be fifth on eight points but should have gone behind late in the game if not for a complete whiff from Foxes striker Jamie Vardy.

The goalfest got underway just before the half-hour mark, with Aguero heading home a Kevin De Bruyne free-kick.

"They made an awesome start", said Guardiola.

Guardiola's side controlled possession throughout, and returned from the half-time break wanting more even after taking a 3-0 first-half lead.

Pep Guardiola has insisted Manchester City can not yet declare themselves ready to match the level of English Premier League soccer title-holders Chelsea.

6 - Sergio Aguero has scored his sixth @premierleague hat-trick; only Shearer (11), Fowler (9), Owen and Henry (8) have scored more. From there he drove toward the box, passing to Silva who drilled the ball across the goal.

With the score still 0-0, Sterling was also the recipient of a delicious through ball from De Bruyne and a goal seemed certain before Kabasele made an excellent last-ditch intervention.

He said: "We knew it would be a tough day to compete at this level but City are strong enough to create problems for us".
