Man City already playing like Barcelona - Guardiola

Man City already playing like Barcelona - Guardiola”

Victory means City have now scored 15 goals without reply in their last three games after big wins over Liverpool last week and Feyenoord in midweek.

It appeared in the early stages of this season that the same flaws were still an issue, with City scoring just once from 19 goal attempts as they were held 1-1 at home by Everton last month.

The Hornets have kept seven clean sheets so far in 2017, with three of those coming in the last three games under the stewardship of Portuguese boss Marco Silva.

"You are looking for character really, you're looking for desire, you're looking for people with enthusiasm", Hodgson said when asked what he wanted to see from his players.

Neighbours United had won numerous plaudits for their impressive start to the season but at Vicarage Road Pep Guardiola's side - led by the sublime quartet of Aguero, Gabriel Jesus, David Silva and Kevin de Bruyne - were rampant.

"They made an fantastic start", said Guardiola. "He's a guy who I admire".

"I think we can threaten a lot of teams with the way we are playing and we can have a great season", Watford defender Daryl Janmaat told the Watford Observer newspaper.

Attacking wise the Blues have started to show signs that they are able to play together, and attack as a unit.

"It will be a demanding game, especially after just three days and the travelling but we have to handle the situation", the Spaniard said.

"This kind of performance, and the way we played, is completely down to the quality of the players".

Good afternoon, and welcome to our live blog of four of the Saturday 3pm matches. "Every three days until the next global break - there are many, many games to play".

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. "They help our strikers", he added.

City are clearly in confident mood, but Watford may prove a tough nut to crack even for their potent strike force.

Gomes has been one of the best shot stoppers in the Premier League ever since Watford returned to the top flight in 2015. That would be a first.

Watford's record against Man City is poor, to say the least.
