—after beating Watford 3:1

(BBC SPORT) Reigning champions Manchester City moved top of the Premier League for the first time this season with a dominant win over struggling Watford.

Raheem Sterling headed City ahead after only four minutes, when free at the back post to meet Phil Foden’s excellent cross from the left.

The hosts were repeatedly ripped apart by City’s movement, passing and creativity and only a number of saves from goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann kept the score down to one goal in the first 30 minutes.

But City got a well-deserved second as Bachmann denied Ilkay Gundogan, but the rebound fell to Bernardo Silva, who showed excellent skill to beat two defenders and finish well from a tight angle.

Silva then grabbed his second and City’s third, cutting in from the right side of the penalty area and curling a fine finish past Bachmann.

Cucho Hernandez pulled one back for Watford, following in to convert a rebound after his first strike hit the foot of the post. After 15 matches, City – title winners in five of the past 10 seasons – are a point ahead of Liverpool.

Chelsea began the day top, but are now a point behind the Reds in third place, after losing 3-2 to fourth-placed West Ham.
