Man City 8-0 Watford 'a joy to watch' - Pep

Manchester City's 8-0 win over Watford was a "joy to watch" after the shock loss to Norwich last weekend, manager Pep Guardiola said.

City came within one goal of equalling the all-time Premier League record for a scoreline on Saturday as Bernardo Silva scored a hat trick, with David Silva, Sergio Aguero, Riyad Mahrez, Nicolas Otamendi and Kevin De Bruyne also on the scoresheet.

With five goals in 18 opening minutes, and the first coming after 52 seconds, City blew Watford away but were unable to reach Manchester United's Premier League record 9-0 defeat of Ipswich in 1995.
