Guardiola hopes 'incredible' Manchester City can maintain form through gruelling run

Such words will be music to ears of City fans, but there is little to put a smile on the face of Watford supporters after a galling afternoon in which substitute Gerard Deulofeu's goal was scant consolation.

"Especially when at the time Watford were frustrating this Manchester City side in the first half".

Manchester City's Raheem Sterling scores their second goal during their Premier League match with Watford at Etihad Stadium in Manchester March 9, 2019.

Hat-trick hero Raheem Sterling underlined the importance of Manchester City maintaining their "amazing mentality" as they look to make this a season to remember.

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.

The third goal was Sterling's 15th of the season in the Premier League, and he is just three behind teammate and leading marksman Aguero.

The win moved Premier League leaders City four points clear of Liverpool ahead of their home game against Burnley on Sunday - a match Juergen Klopp's side can ill-afford not to win.

"Massive win. hard in first half to break them down".

The goal was initially ruled out by the assistant, but the referee opted to overule the decision after a lengthy discussion on the touchline.

"I don't know what the issue was but I was hoping my goal didn't get cancelled out", he said afterwards.

LeBron 'not sitting' games as Lakers hopes fade
The Lakers are now 6-1 to make the playoffs and desperately need a win, especially against a division rival also fighting for a playoff berth.

While the Reds still have a game in hand over the champions, the pressure is gradually being ramped up with every passing game.

"He didn't help us a lot defensively in the first half and he gave the ball away".

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

Jurgen Klopp's side are now one point behind City in second place in the league.

Financial regulations such as salary caps were first introduced in the National Basketball Association in 1984, and U.S. owners in the Premier League have subsequently come to expect similar measures to be taken in the English top flight, with any breaking of the rules to be punished.

"Next season we won't be having this conversation and we will be clear".

Liverpool have lost just once this season - against Man City in January - and will need to remain near ideal for the rest of the season to win their first Premier League title.

There seems, however, no hope for Fulham under caretaker manager Scott Parker, after their defeat at Leicester, whose own new boss Brendan Rodgers was grateful for Vardy's late double.

"Best goal of the season?"
