Man City must learn to deal with short turnaround, says Guardiola

17 September, 2017, 00:33 | Author: Joan Malone

But he impressed as he was given a second City start in Wednesday's emphatic 4-0 win at Feyenoord in the Champions League.

Jesus has scored 12 goals in 16 Premier League games including one in the rout at Watford.

Aguero contributed a couple of goals and Jesus another in the 5-0 win at Vicarage Road that sealed City's place in the Champions League on the final day last season back in May. In on of Saturday's afternoon kick-off, Manchester City will aim to extend their unbeaten start to the season when they meet Watford, who are yet to be defeated this term as well, at Vicarage Road, with a chance to become the new league leaders.

Striker Aguero now has five goals in three games and has moved to within two goals of becoming City's all-time record goal scorer.

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.

If his impressive home record continues and Watford collect all three points, the Hornets will spend Saturday night at the top of the Premier League table.

Large numbers of police, ambulances, and fire trucks are in the area, which has been cordoned off by armed police officers. It is also being reported that people were initially told not to leave the station before an evacuation took place.


Aguero was in uncompromising form in front of goal once again, and he has now scored nine goals in six games against the Hornets.

Craig Cathcart (knee), Sebastian Prodl, Younes Kaboul (both hamstring) and Tommy Hoban (cruciate ligament) are all nursing short-to-long-term injury. Defender Miguel Britos is suspended for the game.

Club captain Vincent Kompany will miss the clash after picking up an injury while on worldwide duty with Belgium.

The visitors are huge favourites to claim a win at 4/11 odds. We can win at home, away - it doesn't matter where.

Etienne Capoue blazed a free header over the crossbar 19 minutes from time, before Aguero scored the pick of the goals when he danced through Watford's defence and rolled the ball into the net. The Blues suffered from some slow starts before, but can now kick on and show their class. Man City attacking partnership of Aguero and Gabriel Jesus was in a flawless working order against Liverpool. For the hosts, Andre Gray and Troy Deeney are available at 15/4 odds. But notably, City's best player so far is one it was rumored to have available for transfer this summer if the right deal came around.

"We have a lot of games".
