Aguero scores hat-trick as Manchester City put six past Watford

Aguero opened the scoring in the 27th minute, heading home De Bruyne's superb free kick, and doubled the lead within four minutes when he converted Silva's teasing cross from close range.

Sergio Aguero scored a predatory hat trick and laid on an assist for Gabriel Jesus, while Nicolas Otamendi headed in, and Raheem Sterling added a late penalty.

But Gomes' hard work was undone one minute later when Silva sent over a cross that evaded the yellow shirts in the box and picked out Otamendi, who powered a header beyond the goalkeeper to make it 4-0 with just over an hour played.

Moments later, City took full advantage as De Bruyne's delivery was flawless for Aguero to score his seventh goal in five games against Watford. "A hat trick is not easy, so all the credit to him".

The Portuguese pulled off an incredible display against Liverpool in a insane 3-3 draw to start the season, with last weekend's long-range efforts from Abdoulaye Doucoure and Daryl Janmaat against Southampton bringing their fans another three points to cheer.

"To play alongside Kevin, David Silva and all the players we have in this squad - it is very good to be here and I am feeling better and better".

"You have to be serious until the end, goal difference could be important". The duo have starred up front together in recent weeks and Aguero, for the second game running, set up Jesus for a goal as the South American duo tore Watford's defense apart. We tried to sign one more during the market because we know some of the players here have had some problems in the past.

Elton John made his first appearance at Watford for two years yet he will have felt like going home at half-time after the home side leaked three goals in 10 first half minutes.

While City went on a rampage Burnley were once again the bane of the big clubs.

In other game Rafa Benitez returned to the bench after surgery as Newcastle secured a 2 - 1 win over Stoke City.

Manchester City have reached the top of the Premier League table for the time being and will next face West Brom in the EFL Cup third round on Wednesday night.

And in that time they have conceded 11 goals and scored just once.

West Bromwich Albion and West Ham United recorded a 0-0 draw as both teams failed to get on the score sheet at the Hawthorns.
