Manchester City 15 points clear of rivals Manchester United 

Runaway leaders Manchester City showed no ill-effects from the end of their 18-game Premier League winning run by comfortably beating Watford last night. 

Playing two days after the 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace, City took just just 38 seconds to open the scoring as Raheem Sterling slotted home Leroy Sane's cross for the quickest goal in the Premier League this season.

City, who are now 15 points above second-placed rivals Manchester United, doubled their lead when Kevin de Bruyne's cross was turned into his own net by a sliding Christian Kabasele.

City got the third goal their dominance merited when Sergio Aguero scored from close range after the Watford goalkeeper parried De Bruyne's cross.

Andre Gray netted a late consolation for Watford, tapping home Andre Carrillo's low cross.
