Watford, watched by Elton John and unbeaten before Pep Guardiola’s men rocked up here, fancied their chances but were blown away by a three-goal salvo before half-time.

IndependentSergio Aguero’s superb hat-trick was the centre-point of a blistering Manchester City performance at Vicarage Road as they swept to the top of the Premier League.

TelegraphGoing one better than the 5-0 scoreline they rattled up here last season, Manchester City netted three goals in each half to cruise to the top of the Premier League.

Hornet effectWatford’s unbeaten start to the season was spectacularly ripped up as they were on the receiving end of a footballing lesson and an exhibition at times as an exceptional Manchester City team cantered to a 6-0 victory.

Relive – Hornets hammered on final day by ruthless City

Man City mauling ends Mazzarri malaise

Mazzarri ‘would like to see a team that could do better’ with injury woes

RATINGS: Sorry Hornets end season in disappointment

BBC Sport Manchester City sealed their place in next season’s Champions League by crushing Watford to finish third in Pep Guardiola’s debut season.

sky Pep Guardiola’s first season at Manchester City ended with a flourish as a 5-0 thrashing of Watford secured third place and Champions League football on Sunday.

guardian To their credit, Watford’s supporters stuck around to applaud their team during the lap of honour after the final whistle. “You give us a bit of shit from time to time,” Deeney said. “But we deserve it.”

Independent Mazzarri has often cited injuries as the reason for his team’s indifferent performances and the situation was so bad here that he was forced to select two goalkeepers among the substitutes. But there was no excuse for continuing his perverse insistence on beginning with club captain and leader Troy Deeney on the bench. That left his team short of heart and spirit and it showed.

TelegraphAs for Watford, this was their sixth straight defeat since they secured 40 points and it was too much for some parts of the home support, who baited their departing manager. When referee Jon Moss called Mazzarri over for a chat about his conduct, the home fans chanted for their manager to be dismissed. When the fifth goal went in it got even nastier, with Mazzarri invited to “f— off”, and “get out of our club”.

BHappy image Our leader, in a final peevish move by his manager, was on the bench (and it’s arguable that in the admittedly ring-rusty Ben Watson, another to have been discarded cheaply by Mazzarri, we had another wise head underemployed). And, of course, we named two goalkeepers… much as we all love Rene Gilmartin this was no tribute to a departing hero (notably, no fawning 26th minute intro/outro for Rene who isn’t nearly a vain enough peacock to have suggested one) but a pathetically self-indulgent sulky statement by the outgoing coach. “Look what I’m left with”. A Charlie Rowan, a Carl Stewart or an Ogo Obi could have filled that space and garnered Mazzarri more sympathy and options.

FranGomes denied Agüero again dropping to block and getting injured in the process.  What a relief that there were two goalkeepers on the bench.

The Hornets Nest Mazzarri surprised everyone by naming two goalkeepers on the bench, something which I have never ever seen done before. It was as baffling as it was disrespectful to those young players trying to break into the first team.
