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

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

Manchester City are unbeaten against Watford in the Premier League, winning four of their six matches (D2).

Elton John made his first appearance at Watford for two years yet he will have felt like going home at half-time after the home side leaked three goals in 10 first half minutes.

"It was so good, especially after an away game in the Champions League", Guardiola said.

Aguero completed his hat-trick in the 81st minute.

"I don't want just two or three players defending or trying to score goals, I want everyone defending and everyone attacking".

Ilkay Gundogan has showered praise on Sergio Aguero following Manchester City's thumping 6-0 win at Watford on Saturday afternoon.

But Aguero provided only half of City's scoring total.

Guardiola suggested the biggest barrier between City and greatness is mental strength, but the recent ruthlessness they have showed is a pleasing factor. The flag stayed down though he appeared to be offside - and Watford manager Marco Silva was left with an incredibly hard team talk at half-time.

Those figures became eight in five as the Argentine was on hand to provide a simple finish 31 minutes in after Heurelho Gomes had palmed Gabriel Jesus' shot into his path.

Guardiola also spoke highly of his opposite number at Watford, Marco Silva, saluting their "amazing start" to the season, with the Hornets just two points shy of joint-top City.

"I was lucky to manage Barcelona with many outstanding performances but this week has been a lot of goals".

Everton have struggled without him so far but Lukaku said he would be focused only on getting another win.

"First of all I start with that, to believe".

It was a marked contrast to last season when the team struggled against their top-six rivals and, aside from the play-off round, failed to win away in the Champions League.

Nicolas Otamendi headed home a fourth before Aguero secured the match ball and Raheem Sterling rounded things off with a penalty.

Jesus added a third before half-time - his fifth of the season - when he drilled home from Aguero's cut-back, despite tame calls for offside from the Hornets defence.

"We have only lost three points".

"We scored a lack of goals last season so we thought that maybe they should play together because Gabriel, when he came, was also striker".
