English Premier League wrap: Manchester City v Watford, 9 March 2019


With eight matches remaining for both sides, City manager Pep Guardiola spoke about the team's current position in the table.

Guardiola said: "When you are fighting people want to underestimate what you achieve".

Sterling's 13-minute treble secured a 3-1 win against Watford in the league on Saturday and the England winger believes City's confidence and steely focus can carry them to an historic season.

But that can not be said about Jurgen Klopp and his armies as they have given City the chance to top the log with just eight round of matches before the season wraps up.

But his dead-eyed ruthlessness to capitalise, taking the game away from Watford and moving on to 15 Premier League goals this season again underlined the impressive strides the former Liverpool man has taken under Guardiola. "We try to win every game".

Sterling was taken off shortly afterward, and Watford substitute Gerard Deulofeu pulled a goal back for the visitors just 17 seconds after going on, scoring with his first touch after Troy Deeney flicked a long ball into the box.

Watford made seven changes to their starting line-up ahead of Saturday's game at the Etihad Stadium in an attempt to frustrate the champions, and just like Bournemouth did the previous weekend the Hornets reached the interval without recording a single shot of any note.

Spurs really should have been out of sight at the interval but a solitary Harry Kane goal was all they had to show for their excellent first half performance.
