Man City already playing like Barcelona - Guardiola

Manchester City have reached the top of the Premier League table for the time being and will next face West Brom in the EFL Cup third round on Wednesday night.

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

And Sergio Aguero was City's goal hero - yet again. Watford started the season with a 3-3 thriller at home against Liverpool, and since that game, they have not conceded a goal in the league.

Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus and the Manchester City boys appear to enjoy their trips to Watford.

Watford withstood City's early pressure, with goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes saving well from Fernandinho and Christian Kabasele making a superb tackle to deny Aguero a one-on-one after 18 minutes.

But, with United not playing until tomorrow, City have a chance to leapfrog their local rivals.

Who will come out on top in the battle of the managers Marco Silva or Josep Guardiola?

Gabriel Jesus scored from an offside position off an assist from Aguero, Nicolas Otamendi headed in a Silva cross and Raheem Sterling scored from the penalty spot for the team's sixth.

As for the visitors, Pep Guardiola's Manchester City find themselves second in the division with 10 points from a possible 12 this season, coming off the back of consecutive league wins.

"When we are able to do that, then I will feel we have made a step forward to become a better team".

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

Aguero then delivered an wonderful run into the box and then rolled the ball past Gomes for a fifth, before Raheem Sterling dusted himself down after winning a penalty to make it six.

"He was so important last season". Liverpool may or may not take the frustration of a bad week out on Burnley, while Huddersfield can move back into the top four with a win over Leicester. "The big clubs win the games and that is the big difference to the big teams", he added.

City spent more than £200 million (S$358.9m) on new players and have made an unbeaten start to the campaign in all competitions.

Summer recruit Mohamed Salah's tying goal secured a point for the Reds but even he can't match the brilliance of Mane, who is serving a three-match suspension after being sent off against Manchester City last weekend.
