That's full time. City win 6-0, one better than last week. Aguero has his sixth Premier League hat-trick, and 299 career goals. City go top, at least until Sunday night. An impressive showing, and Watford weren't even that bad.

A flick-on from a corner finds Capoue running at the back post, but he heads wide.

Mendy is found by Silva on the left. A driven cross is slightly nicked on the way through, and it's a corner on the right wing for City.

Doucoure is given a yellow for a couple attempts to trip Sterling as he pelted down the middle.

- Yellow cardJose HolebasWatford

Kabasele pulls off an excellent tackle, swinging his leg ahead of Sterling in the box, and claiming the ball from him, shielding it, and sending the winger to the floor.
Plenty of possession for City at the moment, but Watford are sitting back and coping well enough for now. The problem is keeping fitness and concentration levels up.
De Bruyne slides through pass for Aguero down the inside right channel, and his attemped chip from a tight angle drifts a yard or so over the bar.

- 1st Half
The match gets underway. Silva fizzes a shot at goal that's deflected for a corner.
Marco Silva v Pep Guardiola. One is an Iberian maverick, ready to redefine tactics, and so much more. The other is Pep Guardiola.
If City win, they will go top of the league. Interestingly, so would Watford, who are just a couple of points behind City and United. United are playing tomorrow, as are Chelsea.

Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero start in attack for City, and Ederson is able to return to action after getting clattered by Sadio Mane at the weekend.
The very enjoyable Richarlison makes a start against City, and is the attacking spark for Watford today.
Here's the Watford side.
No rotation from Pep Guardiola after City's midweek Champions League exploits, but there's no Vincent Kompany who has a calf problem.
