Gabriel Jesus, tracked by Arsenal, begins his festival in the fourth minute. Well served by Zinchenko, the Brazilian deceived veteran Ben Foster (39). Biss repeated in the 23rd minute when Kevin De Bruyne landed a millimeter cross over Jesus’ head, which doubled the stake. Former Nice, Hasan Kamara, leads a sneaky revolt at the Hornets by deceiving Ederson with a cross shot and giving hope to the current 19th-place finisher in the Premier League. A rebound was quickly extinguished by Rodri, who put Watford two lengths behind nationals, shortly before halftime (34th). Gabriel Jesus this time turned into a passerby to serve the Spanish international.

By the start of the second act, Guardiola and his players kill the match. Gabriel Jesus took his goal-scoring suit for the third time on a penalty in the 49th minute, then the fourth, impeccably served by the inevitable Kevin de Bruyne. The match being folded, Man City puts itself on autopilot mode and is content to control the opposing tilt. Despite some attacks from the Skyblues, the score did not budge and City walked away from Etihad with three points and a clean goal difference. A good point ahead of this Sunday’s Mercy derby between Liverpool and Everton. With five games remaining in the championship, Jurgen Klopp’s players must win to not allow City to take a four-point lead. City will host Real Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League on Tuesday before the championship returns to daily life.
