De Bruyne was central to City’s second goal, which came on 13 minutes, with his cross turned into the Watford net by Christian Kabasele.

Sergio Aguero had failed to make the most of a number of good chances before finally getting on the scoresheet just after the hour-mark.
Late on, Andre Gray would get one back for the visitors.
However, overall, Watford were well beaten as Pep Guardiola’s charges cruised to yet another win, which sees them go 15 points clear at the top of the table.
