Pep Hails Man City’s Win Over Watford.

The Spaniard saluted the quality of City’s attack after they put eight past the Hornets on Saturday.

Pep Guardiola expressed his delight after Manchester City beat Watford 8-0 at the Etihad, adding he was impressed by how they approached the game today.

The Citizens returned to winning ways following their shock loss to Norwich last weekend, scoring five goals in 18 minutes as they handed the away side their heaviest ever defeat in the league.

Bernardo Silva's hat-trick, and goals from David Silva, Sergio Aguero, Riyad Mahrez, Nicolas Otamendi and midfield maestro Kevin De Bruyne tore Watford into pieces and following the match Guardiola said: “We shot on target five times for five goal.

“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.”
