Manchester City drub Watford 6-0

Manchester City rounded off an outstanding season by crushing Watford at Wembley to clinch a historic domestic treble.

Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus both scored twice as Pep Guardiola’s team became the first English men’s side to achieve the feat of winning the Premier League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup in the same season.

They reaffirmed their status as this season’s dominant force as Watford were utterly outclassed, City achieving the biggest FA Cup final win since Bury beat Derby 6-0 in 1903.

Watford’s best chance of over-turning the odds came early on when City keeper Ederson saved at the feel of Roberto Pereyra and they were furious when referee Kevin Friend waved away penalty claims after Vincent Kompany blocked Abdoulaye Doucoure’s shot.

The contest was effectively over from the moment David Silva finished from close range after 26 minutes, Jesus doubling the advantage before half-time after Bernardo Silva’s sublime pass.

Watford rallied briefly after the break but were always wide open to the counter attack.

They were brutally punished by an imperious City side, as substitute Kevin de Bruyne scored from Jesus’s pass just after the hour before the Brazilian raced clear for another goal shortly afterwards.

Sterling scored twice in the final 10 minutes – turning in Bernardo Silva’s perfect cross before bundling in the final goal of a memorable display from Guardiola’s side.
