Last weekend’s shock loss to Norwich was put firmly in the rear-view mirror, thanks to by the club’s biggest top-flight victory, sealed by five goals in a remarkable 18 opening minutes.
Man City hit eight past Watford Premier League highlights & reports Bernardo Silva’s hat-trick was complemented by efforts David Silva, Sergio Aguero, Riyad Mahrez, Nicolas Otamendi and star man Kevin De Bruyne as Watford fell to their heaviest ever league defeat.
“We shot on target five times for five goals,” the City boss said. “The quality of players we had up front made the difference. In the first minutes, we gave them two chances to score two goals and they didn’t.
“In the middle up front, we have a huge amount of talent and that is why we’ve done what we have done. The difference is the talent we have up front.
“What I liked the most is normally when it’s 5-0 at half time the second half is not serious, it’s boring, everyone does what they want. But we did completely the opposite, we were serious, more aggressive with our pressing and made a very good second half.
“People still don’t understand – journalists, pundits and former players – losing games is part of life. I have the same feeling now that I had after Norwich, so that was not a bad performance. We can lose the games; the important thing is the approach and how we react.”
