Manchester City went into their 20th game in the Premier League against Watford City at Vicarage road after a disappointing 0-0 draw against Leicester City and standing at the 3rd spot, 6 points off Arsenal.
A loss at the hands of flying Watford could possibly push them down to the 4th position. Watford though, went into this game with an impeccable record, having had just a single loss in their last 7 matches. For the visitors, De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero were in fine form whilst for the hosts Ighalo was himself in an unstoppable form, having scored 13 goals in his last 19 games.
The Citizens would love to add some away wins as their away form has not been good this time around, having gained just 3 points out of a possible 18.
The match looked rather slow for over an hour until Watford took a much deserved lead with an own goal by Kolarov which was forced by a beautiful corner by Ben Howard at the 54th min. Watford then took command of the match, until Yaya Toure smashed in a great ball from a precise pass from Kolarov at the 82nd minute. Things went from bad to worse for the hornets as they conceived yet another goal 2 mins later, scored by Sergio Aguero from a Sagna cross. So the citizens went home with all the 3 points even after a pretty good display from Watford.
