Manchester City see off stubborn Watford lailasnews


Goals from Leroy Sane and Riyad Mahrez gave City a hard-fought win at Watford which re-established their five-point cushion at the top of the Premier League table.

City had been frustrated early on by saves from Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster until Sane scored in the 40th minute by diverting in Mahrez’s inswinging cross with his chest.

Six minutes after half-time Mahrez increased the lead by sweeping in Gabriel Jesus’ cross at the back post.

City controlled the game with more than 70% of possession but Abdoulaye Doucoure scrambled in for Watford in the 85th minute to give the hosts hope of an unlikely comeback.

That resulted in a nervy finish for City as the hosts sent Foster forward for set-pieces, with Guardiola introducing defensive reinforcements to deal with the pressure, but the visitors held on for their seventh successive league win.

The victory moves them five points clear of second-placed Liverpool, who will again try to reduce the gap when they travel to Burnley on Wednesday.
