Aguero scores 100 Etihad goals as Man City humiliate Watford

EPL By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 21/09/2019

Sergio Aguero scores 100 Etihad goals as Manchester City humiliate Watford  8-0 on an incredible, record-breaking day in the Premier League encounter on Saturday evening.

Pep Guardiola's reigning champions bounce back against the Hornets after a shock 3-2 defeat to newly-promoted Norwich City last weekend at Carrow Road.

David Silva put Manchester City ahead with a close-range finish within the first minute of kickoff, the fastest goal scored in the Premier League this season before Sergio Aguero then doubled the home team’s advantage from the penalty spot, a goal that elevated the Argentine into the elite class of just three players in the competition’s history to net more than 100 goals at a single venue.

Riyad Mahrez saw his free-kick deflected past Ben Foster by Tom Cleverley after the keeper had fouled the winger to make it three, shortly after, the fourth goal arrived as Bernardo Silva was afforded the freedom of the penalty area to nod home from six yards.

With only just 18 minutes on the clock, it soon became five when Nicolas Otamendi slid home to score at the back post, to nail a performance of the highest quality but the Citizens were not done just yet and shortly after the restart, as Portugal international netted another goal to secure his first-ever Premier League brace.

On the hour mark, the scoreline changed to read 7-0 with Bernardo Silva at it again: the Portuguese took one touch to control a dangerous low ball sent in by De Bruyne, before slotting his effort past Foster.

That third Bernardo goal was his first-ever top-flight hat-trick in what is his 178th appearance across the English, French and Portuguese top tiers.

Five minutes to time, Kevin de Bruyne then scored the goal his performance merited off a Riyad Mahrez assist to complete a record-breaking day for City and a horrible day to be a Hornets fan.
