Manchester City entertained Watford at the Etihad Stadium earlier tonight as they looked to pick up a win in front of their home fans. The Mancunian giants made a bright start to the game and took the lead in the fourth minute courtesy of Gabriel Jesus’ tap-in from close range. Jesus doubled his team’s advantage in the 23rd minute with a good header. Hassane Kamara got a goal back for the visitors just five minutes later when he scored with a clinical finish. However, Rodri restored Man City’s two-goal lead in the 34th minute with a great strike as the home team went into the half-time break 3-1 up on the scoreline.

Jesus completed his hat-trick from the penalty spot in the 49th minute before going on to score again just four minutes later. The contest ended with Man City securing an emphatic 5-1 win at home.

Let’s take a look at how each Man City player fared during the contest against the Hornets.
