Sterling urges City to clinch quadruple

Sergio Aguero

Raheem Sterling scored the three goals for City within 13 minutes to render Gerard Deulofeu's strike a mere consolation and condemn the Hornets to their 11th defeat this season.

Pep Guardiola hopes Manchester City can maintain their "incredible" recent form as the finish line in a momentous season moves into sight.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany believes Premier League title rivals Liverpool will win all of their remaining games.

When people asked if Liverpool feel the pressure on top of the league, I said I preferred to be on top than behind.

They won the Premier League with a record 100 points last season and are in contention for an unprecedented quadruple this year. "We got it and it kick-started our game".

City now turn their attention to their Champions League last 16 return leg against Germany's Schalke on Tuesday, which they lead 3-2.

They then travel to face a struggling Fulham side at Craven Cottage next time out in the Premier League, with three points a must for Guardiola's side in their quest to retain the title. Replays showed Sterling was in an offside position when Aguero chested down the ball.

The Premier League champions are facing investigations from a number of organisations over matters such as financial impropriety, recruitment of academy players and third-party ownership.

"We didn't concede many chances and I think it was a good first half".

The Bluebirds grabbed a much needed victory over West Ham on Saturday afternoon meaning they still have all to play for in the final nine games of the season.

That goal brought some belief to the Watford approach and there were a worrying few minutes as they launched high balls at us but we withstood their attacks and dealt well with the increasingly desperate passes. He said: "My impression is that the ball comes from the opponent so it's not offside, because it happened last season in the Champions League and was quite similar - I was out of the Champions League last season for one quite similar to that - [James] Milner passed the ball to Leroy Sané, we would have scored the second goal".

Sterling's opening goal following a goalless first half was awarded after originally being ruled out for offside.

The Reds are still searching to win their first major trophy under Klopp since his appointment as Brendan Rodgers' successor at Anfield back in October 2015. "I think they saw the Watford defender play the ball onto Sterling but not that he also challenged for it as well".
