Rampant Manchester City looking more like a Guardiola team

1:59 | Planet Futbol         A look back at Manchester City's dramatic 2012 Premier League title win

However, the Argentine has six goals in as many games in all competitions this season, and has formed a lethal partnership with Jesus to catapult the red-hot blues to the Premier League summit.

Pep Guardiola vows Yaya Toure still has a vital role to play for Manchester City this season, after the Ivorian midfielder was left out of his side's Champions League win against Feyenoord on Wednesday.

"It was so good, especially after an away game in the Champions League", Guardiola said.

Sergio Aguero was the man of the match with the sixth hat-trick of his Premier League career.

Within three minutes, City went ahead after De Bruyne's free kick found Aguero open to nod home. "He's an important player in our squad but now is the moment to find another solution", Silva told the club website.

"Of course (he comes into contention)", Silva said of the 26-year-old who arrived on a season-long loan from Italy's Udinese and has not played for Watford yet. His teammate - Gabriel Jesus, is available at 11/13 odds.

The corresponding fixture last season ended in the exact same score in favour of City, with Fernandinho, Gabriel Jesus, Vincent Kompany and Sergio Aguero (twice) all finding the back of the net.

This is the fifth League match for both of them, while Watford had two wins and two draws by playing four matches so far. We tried to sign one more during the market because we know some of the players here have had some problems in the past.

Watford have played the 4-3-3 formation in three of their games before going to a 4-2-3-1 when visiting the Saints, and picking up their second win.

"At zero-five yeah. I like penalties to be taken by the takers but I understand why they switched because Sterling created the penalty".

Meanwhile, Raheem Sterling is available after serving his one-match ban last week, and is in contention to make the starting lineup with Guardiola likely to shuffle his pack to keep all his charges fit and firing.

Last season, City completed a double over Watford without conceding a goal.

Richarlison curled a shot just wide of Ederson's goal as Watford looked to re-assert themselves early in the second half but Gomes remained the busier of the two keepers and he saved Silva's powerful rising shot brilliantly on 62 minutes.
