Six & The City: Man City Rolls

Lascelles, who also scored the victor at Swansea last Sunday, powered home in the 68th minute to secure his side their first run of three straight top-flight wins since November 2014.

"We played really good, especially after the Champions League game away, against Watford, who were unbeaten until now with a top manager [Marco Silva] who showed at Hull City how well he works".

And Guardiola says he has been impressed with the displays of his team.

Manchester City will travel to Vicarage Road to meet Watford and City manager Pep Guardiola showered praise on his opposite number Marco Silva in his pre-match press conference yesterday.

Aguero and Jesus could force Guardiola to rethink his tactics: Guardiola has made it clear that Aguero will not feature in every game, and the striker has been rumoured to be close to the exit under Guardiola. "Between him, Mariappa and Kabasele, I have to choose the centre-backs". He is so important, I admire what he has done and in his career.

"We know how much quality we have", said the 26-year-old Belgium global.

The Portuguese pulled off an incredible display against Liverpool in a insane 3-3 draw to start the season, with last weekend's long-range efforts from Abdoulaye Doucoure and Daryl Janmaat against Southampton bringing their fans another three points to cheer.

Man City however have started the season brightly and look good value to add some silverware to their collection come next May.

"I think we can threaten a lot of teams with the way we are playing and we can have a great season", Watford defender Daryl Janmaat told the Watford Observer newspaper. "Every three days until the next worldwide break - there are many, many games to play".

City are clearly in confident mood, but Watford may prove a tough nut to crack even for their potent strike force. The iconic celebration is rarely seen nowadays, having once been one of the most famous in English football, but it still makes the odd appearance on special occasions.

Three points tomorrow would be a real statement from Watford and put to bed a long, fruitless spell of games against City.

If his impressive home record continues and Watford collect all three points, the Hornets will spend Saturday night at the top of the Premier League table.
