DREAM TEAM POINTS Watford 0 Man City 6

City won only two Premier League fixtures out of the seven that followed their Champions League group and knockout matches last season. A full list of TV coverage from around the world can be found here.

They have only been at the top of the English football ladder once in their 136 year history, when a 2-0 victory over West Brom on September 11 1982 saw Graham Taylor's side reach the summit.

The Premier League match was over by half-time thanks to two goals from Sergio Aguero and another by Gabriel Jesus.

Sergio Ag├╝ero got a hat-trick, Gabriel Jesus, Otamendi and Raheem Sterling joined the party, and the Blues finished off a sensational week of three wins and 15 goals scored.

Defence is the worst hit area with five key first-team players unavailable.

Silva will be forced to field a makeshift back four in a repeat of last season's final game against the same opposition.

Aguero then added the pick of the bunch, picking up Bernardo Silva's ball and bullying his way past four Watford defenders and taking Gomes out of the equation before finding the far corner with an exquisitely accurate finish.

Incredibly, Sergio Aguero is only owned by 11% of the game, which is a bit insane considering his goal scoring record since arriving at Manchester City. The flag stayed down though he appeared to be offside - and Watford manager Marco Silva was left with an incredibly hard team talk at half-time.

It would also put Watford top of the Premier League table for 22 hours at least, with Chelsea and Manchester United playing on Sunday afternoon.

Both sides have made undefeated starts to the season, with City's record edging out Watford by two points, picking up one more win.

Pep Guardiola says Manchester City are beginning to remind him of his great Barcelona side after a dominant week domestically and overseas.

Manchester City, though, are another level of test altogether for the Brazilian, with the Citizens one of the most prolific sides in the league.
