Manchester City travel to Watford to take on the Hornets

"We tried absolutely everything, but I think it was not the salary".

He joins Sebastian Prodl, Craig Cathcart and Tommie Hoban on the casualty list while Miguel Britos is suspended.

Club captain Vincent Kompany will miss the clash after picking up an injury while on worldwide duty with Belgium.

Up front, Roberto Pereyra (groin) and Mauro Zarate (cruciate ligament) are the men who will not play any part on Saturday. "I'm so happy for the third goal because he's so clever in the box".

It is unfair to criticise Andre Gray for his lack of goals in a Watford shirt since his record move from Burnley, because doing so would ignore the contribution he makes to the side. As City ran rampant, they always looked capable of surpassing last season's final-day 5-0 victory. Watford FC will host Manchester City FC, at Vicarage Road, at 1500 BST on Saturday, September 16, 2017.

Aguero then added the pick of the bunch, picking up Bernardo Silva's ball and bullying his way past four Watford defenders and taking Gomes out of the equation before finding the far corner with an exquisitely accurate finish.

It brings the club's goal tally to 11 in six days as City marched back to the top of the Premier League in style.

Watford have been playing catch up for just 33 minutes in the Premier League this season.

Even if Aguero was modest, his teammates summed up his brilliance with Ilkay Gundogan calling him a "goal machine" and his last goal "incredible" while Raheem Sterling put it perfectly: "Give Sergio Aguero a chance and nine times out of 10 he'll score".

Marco Silva says his focus is on his Watford players rather than the talents of Manchester City ahead of the side's meeting at Vicarage Road.

Three-goal Sergio Aguero was the star for Manchester City as they embarrassed Watford.

With Watford yet to best their Premier League superiors since the division's inception in the early nineties, a win for Silva's side seems unlikely this weekend, with such a strong attacking force at City's disposal.

Although it's taken a year longer than many expected, Manchester City is finally beginning to resemble a Pep Guardiola-coached team.

He said: "The big clubs win the games and that is the big difference".
