City put visitors in their place after early surprise

Manchester City moved five points clear at the top of the Premier League as they held on in a tense finish for a 2-1 victory at Watford on Tuesday.

Manchester City midfielder, Ilkay Gundogan has said that Pep Guardiola's side are not "invincible" in the Premier League this season. The Germany worldwide was pictured out and about in the city on a day of after his star performance in City's 3-1 victory over Bournemouth on Saturday.

Personally I would prefer us to run away with the League and open up a relaxing cushion of points. "Today we had a reason for the fragility".

"I think it is too early to see how decisive it is", Guardiola said of City's advantage. "It's about that appetite, that fire that you have".

Southampton let a two-goal lead slip against Fulham last week and United quickly hit back through Romelu Lukaku who was set up by Marcus Rashford.

Romelu Lukaku ran onto a pass from Marcus Rashford to shoot high into the net in the 33rd for his first goal for United since September 15.

And Raheem Sterling had the most impressive stats of anyone up for the award, with 3 goals and 3 assists.

Only after Sterling put City in front in the 57th minute, scoring for the sixth straight game against Bournemouth, did the champions really start to exert any dominance. "Hopefully he can stay here for many, many years".

"In the first half Raheem was not there but then he makes a slalom and changes the game".

This time a year ago, Pep Guardiola left City's record goalscorer on the bench for the Manchester derby at Old Trafford.

City has won 12 of its 14 league games. Capoue (who picked up a red card last time out) Mariappa & Deulofeu are out! With one of the best goals of the season in the Premier League, he did exactly that against Watford.

City finally broke through five minutes before the break when Mahrez's cross picked out Sane unmarked at the back post and he cleverly used his chest to power the ball below Foster.

Gabriel Jesus started against Bournemouth in Aguero's absence, but was unable to get on the scoresheet. "I'm not here to say whether this is a better side than Bayern Munich or Barcelona".

Watford's misery was complete when Etienne Capoue was sent off in the 90th minute for a lunge on Kelechi Iheanacho.

Crystal Palace ended their eight-game winless league run with a 2-0 success against fellow strugglers Burnley.

But Bournemouth have never lost on the road to the reigning Premier League champions, beating Chelsea twice at Stamford Bridge and drawing with Leicester at the King Power Stadium.
