Manchester City Top The EPL; As Aguero Scores Hat-Trick

In Game-week 5 of the English Premier League, Manchester City extended their unbeaten run to 13 games with an emphatic 6-0 win over Watford.

Manchester City made light work of a Watford defence that had been impenetrable in the previous three games as Aguero found the net on three occasions, with Gabriel Jesus, Nicolas Otamendi and Raheem Sterling also joining Aguero on the score sheet.

Aguero took his tally to nine goals in five games with two simple first-half stikes from close range and a brilliant second-hald solo goal, while Jesus scored his 11th goal in 13 EPL starts since joining the club in January.

The home side managed to withstand Manchester City’s early pressure with goalkeeper Gomes making brilliant saves from Fernandinho and Christian Kabasele making an awesome tackle to deny Aguero a one-on-one stituation after 18 minutes.

In the 27th minute, Kevin De Bruyne floated a free-kick onto the head of Aguero, who made no mistake from five yards out.

Four minutes on, Jesus skipped down the left flank before feeding the ball to David Silva inside the box and the Spaniard squared it across the face of goal where Aguero arrived unchallenged to poke the ball home.

Manchester City made it 3-0 inside 37 minutes when Aguero dribbled to the edge of the box and threaded a pass to Jesus, who picked his spot in the far corner of the net and dispatched the ball clinically.

Watford looked to pull one back with a curled cross from Richarlison which went wide of Ederson’s goal.

Watford keeper Gomes tried his best to keep the scores at 3-0, however a brilliant cross from David Silva in the 63th minute picked out Nicholas Otamendi who powered a header beyond Gomes to make it 4-0.

In the 82th minute, Aguero scored the pick the goals when he danced through the Watford defence and rolled the ball into the net.

Raheem Sterling sealed the rout by scoring a penalty in the 88th minute after he was brought down in the box by Kabasele.
