Watford did find some consolation with a goal of their own in the 66th minute courtesy of Gerard Deulofeu, 3-1.

Pep Guardiola apologised if Manchester City's opener against Watford was offside, but blamed other clubs for not backing VAR this season.

Moments afterwards, Darryl Janmaat produced a superb goal-saving tackle on Raheem Sterling, when the England winger looked set to score.

There were no qualms when David Silva and Mahrez sliced their way down Watford's left channel, however, and Sterling tapped in the former Leicester City man's cross.

Guardiola was frustrated by the questions about officiating and complicated rule system, just as he was irked by a report on the eve of the game that he had verbally agreed to join Juventus on a four-year deal.

Eighteen for the season in all competitions, as well as 15 assists. "We try to win every game". However, presumably because the ball had been touched on to Sterling's leg by a sliding tackle from Daryl Janmaat, referee Paul Tierney opted to overrule his assistant and award the goal - much to the annoyance of Watford's players.

'No, I didn't hear what (the referee) was saying but at the time I didn't think I was offside, so I was hoping he did have a long think and give us the goal and that's exactly what he's done, ' the England worldwide told CityTV. I have two years and it is impossible for me to move, unless I get sacked.

The Hornets put up a good fight in the first half, but their resistance crumbled after the break.

On an unhappy return to his old St Mary's stamping ground, Pochettino, serving the first of a two-match touchline ban, could hardly credit how his side capitulated to two late goals in five minutes from Yan Valery and James Ward-Prowse.

"If we have made mistakes we will be punished".

With that, the game changed in City's favour and the points were never in doubt as the pressure now switches to Liverpool, who face Burnley at Anfield on Sunday lunchtime.

"I already said last season that I trust a lot in what the club have done, because I know them, but I hope they can solve it as soon as possible".

Burley believes Liverpool are at a disadvantage as they play the day after Pep Guardiola's side hosts Watford (5.30pm).

Manchester City won the Premier League in the 2017-18 season and are now seated at the top of the table.

Fulham are in 19th place on 17 points with their plight only topped by Huddersfield Town's after the Terriers remained three points further adrift following their 2-0 home defeat by Bournemouth.
