Pep Guardiola delighted with lethal Manchester City after six-goal show

Manchester City vs Watford FC

But, with United not playing until tomorrow, City have a chance to leapfrog their local rivals.

A makeshift back four that lines up mirrors the same problems suffered against Pep Guardiola's side in the final game of last season.

But in recent games, Guardiola's side have began to hit their straps with nine goals in their past two outings against Liverpool and Feyenoord.

The victory took City atop the standings with four wins and a draw from five games.

"I was really impressed with their performance at Southampton where they dominated the first half".

The Premier League match between Watford and Manchester City will be broadcast live on NBC Sports.

The Blues suffered from some slow starts before, but can now kick on and show their class. Man City attacking partnership of Aguero and Gabriel Jesus was in a flawless working order against Liverpool. A late goal by Sevilla last Wednesday kept the Reds from taking home three points in the Champions League.

The hosts have a long injury-list, and they will be missing the likes of Mauro Zarate, Kiko Femenia, Younes Kaboul, Craig Cathcart, Sebastian Prodl and Roberto Pereyra.

Club captain Vincent Kompany will miss the clash after picking up an injury while on worldwide duty with Belgium.

The visitors are huge favourites to claim a win at 4/11 odds.

Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles proved the Magpies' hero once again as his second-half header earned a hard-fought 2-1 win at home to Stoke.

"Sometimes in a bad situation maybe we weren't able to overcome the situation".

City's next European hurdle is a home clash against Shakhtar Donetsk, who beat Napoli 2-1 in their opener, on September 26.

Marco Silva's Watford will be a huge test of City's title credentials, with the Hornets proving to be tough customers thus far. You can get the best odds of 10/1 for our betting tip at Bet365.

Sergio Aguero has now scored the 200th goal of his league career in Europe.

There are only three teams who are still unbeaten going into the fifth round of Premier League matches this weekend, and two of them are set to face each other today.

"We want Brahim. But the market is the market and you can't control it. We have found our game, we can make short passes and we have a lot of energy from our full-backs".
