Watford have never beaten Manchester City in the Premier League, losing four of their six encounters (D2).

Nevertheless it was an established City player in England centre-back John Stones who scored twice for Pep Guardiola's expensively-assembled side as they won 4-0 away to Dutch champions Feyenoord in an impressive start to their Champions League campaign on Wednesday.

Speaking in a press conference ahead of the game against Watford at the weekend, Guardiola stated that it is essentially up to players where there future lies after the transfers during this summer's window of Kylian Mbappé from Monaco to PSG and Ousmane Dembélé's switch from Dortmund to Barcelona.

Sergio Aguero was the man of the match with the sixth hat-trick of his Premier League career.

Aguero notched his treble with nine minutes left, collecting the ball from Kyle Walker and skipping past a couple of challenges before scoring.

City were a joy to watch today in the flawless advertisement for Pep Guardiola's infamous brand of one-touch possession football.

The Hornets have looked very hard to beat under Marco Silva this season, and this could be a potential banana-peel for Pep Guardiola's side.

Nicolas Otamendi headed in David Silva's corner before Aguero completed his hat-trick when he poked home after a pulsating solo run into the box. On Saturday afternoon, they will host another undefeated side - Manchester City, at Vicarage Road.

And while the attack is the reason you should tune in every time City is on TV, the defense is why club has a chance to win every match. We have to handle these situations, when one team have one week to prepare and we don't have the time.

"The first goal is offside, the second goal we made a big mistake for them to create a goal and again the third goal is offside".

Moments later, City took full advantage as De Bruyne's delivery was flawless for Aguero to score his seventh goal in five games against Watford.

One player who is expected to play is Vincent Kompany, the City skipper having missed the last two matches through injury.

The victory took City to the top of the table, but Manchester United can join it on Sunday with a win over Everton. He deserved his standing ovation when replaced by Ilkay Gundogan, whose first appearance since December previous year brought even more cheer to Guardiola.
