Manchester City falls just shy of Premier League history in walloping Watford

The record scoreline in the Premier League era (1992-present) is Manchester United's 9-0 victory over Ipswich Town on March 4, 1995.

Manchester City's flying start in their 8-0 demolition of Watford was "weird" and "not normal", according to Pep Guardiola.

There was a time when Manchester City were not that good, and it is not so long ago.

Sergio Aguero, Riyad Mahrez, Bernardo Silva and Nicolas Otamendi also scored inside of 18 minutes, giving City five goals faster than any team in PL history had scored them.

Pep Guardiola felt Man City's 8-0 thumping of Watford carried a touch of the freakish and rejected claims he did not respect the opponents.

It was the flawless reaction from City to last weekend's surprising 3-2 loss at Norwich.

But Malaysia's Film Censorship Board banned the movie from cinemas, saying it would have to make so many cuts to racy scenes there would be barely anything left to screen.

David Silva got City up and running after finishing off a delightful pass from Kevin De Bruyne in the first minute, before Sergio Aguero's 100th Premier League goal doubled the hosts' advantage from the penalty spot.

The Manchester club did not take their foot off the gas in the second half, with Bernardo Silva scoring two of the three goals after the break to complete his hat-trick.

Given the recent history of this fixture, it was no real surprise that City won - or by a sizable margin. "Five shots, five goals".

After all, they had beaten the Hornets on the last 11 occasions they had met them in all competitions, including last season's one-sided FA Cup final at Wembley when City ran out 6-0 winners.

"The quality we have is a joy to watch".
