Manchester City ran over Watford their Premier League clash, in which the 'sky blues' got some records. The team of Pep Guardiola took advantage of a very weak opponent to score an overwhelming 8-0
It does hardly some weeks that started the season, and the Manchester City of Pep Guardiola already is harvesting records. The team that directs the technician of Santpedor has had some difficulties in the start of the Premier League, but of course no so many like his opponent of this Saturday, a Watford that is colista and that does not raise head in spite of the recent changes in the bench.
In the Etihad Stadium, the venues ran over to the 'hornets', beginning by the 5-0 faster of the history of the competition. Hardly 18 minutes took the ones of house to sentence the meeting, that went a show for the fans and a torture for the rival players. The 8-0 final has turned into the third elder goleada that it has certified in the First English Division.
The afternoon began badly for the visitors, since in the first seconds of the duel, David Silva opened the tin. Precise centre of Kevin of Bruyne and the Spanish that did not waste the sending in mouth of goal. It was the start dreamed by the 'sky blues', with the memory of the painful defeat in Norwich still too cool. After this exhibition, has erased almost completely.
In something more than a chamber of fateful hour, the result did not leave to fatten. A penalti absurd converted by Sergio Agüero; a free direct from the frontal of Riyad Mahrez that coló after striking in Tom Cleverley; a so much of Bernardo Silva after a very bad corner defended; and the 'manita' of Nico Otamendi, that took advantage of a powerful sending that the 'Kun' put to the area after a fault taken out in short by the Canarian midfield player.
The City brakes but also golea in the second time
Although the City followed carburando and leaving without break to the Watford, the terracing had half hour of truce without celebrating, as if his stars had given him a rest after 18 minutes of maximum intensity. The veteran guardameta Ben Foster had to multiply not to go out badly stopped, but is difficult to judge his performance in a rain of shots of which was complicated to go out indemne.
In the resumption took advantage of Bernardo Silva to build a 'hat-trick', taking advantage of the defensive fragility of an opponent that did not raise of the canvas. The Portuguese followed 'hammering' and with rebounds and something of expectancy confirmed that it carried the balloon home. Kevin of Bruyne put the end of party with a golazo, with a missile that mixed power and precision and that closed the day in style.
