The two Manchester clubs, United and City, will be looking to maintain their places at the top of the Premier League by winning their respective matches this weekend. The Sky Blues are proving to be one of the most high-flying teams in world soccer this season. The Citizens appear to be doing just that - they beat Watford FC 6-0 on Saturday.
Whilst Sergio Aguero completed his hat-trick with a stunning fifth goal of the game.
Barely four minutes later and Aguero had the easiest of tasks from a yard out after David Silva's low cross evaded Heurelho Gomes at the near post.
Aguero notched his treble with nine minutes left, collecting the ball from Kyle Walker and skipping past a couple of challenges before scoring.
Sergio Aguero scored a hat trick and there were also goals for Gabriel Jesus, Nicolas Otamendi and Raheem Sterling as Ctiy moved to the top of the table for 24 hours at least. He has a goal scoring sense.
De Bruyne, Aguero and Jesus will lead the attack for the Manchester based outfit. He deserved his standing ovation when replaced by Ilkay Gundogan, whose first appearance since December past year brought even more cheer to Guardiola. This season, they seem to have that system down pat.
Marco Silva's arrival in Hertfordshire had brought an unbeaten start to the season but it was not to be sustained.
Gundogan believes the result and the performance was great, especially after a grueling week of travelling for Manchester City and feels it was a brilliant showing from his team-mates. Watford have earned clean sheets in their last three Premier League matches.
This time Liverpool were their victim, as they held the Reds to a 1-1 draw at Anfield, after holding Spurs and beating Chelsea earlier in the season.
"I am very happy and I will continue to work as it goes on".
Liverpool responded in kind three minutes later.
Steven Davis scored the only goal of the game after just six minutes when he tucked the ball home after Palace keeper Wayne Hennessey palmed a Dusan Tadic cross into his path.
Burnley has picked up away points at three of last season's top-six teams, beating Chelsea on opening day and drawing against Tottenham at Wembley.
