Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster believes it is only a matter of time before Manchester City score ten goals in a match such is the quality they possess.

The Hornets were 1-0 down inside the opening minute and five goals behind within the first 20, as City set a Premier League record for being the fastest team to ever take a 5-0 lead.

Foster reflects after conceding another Man City goal

‘I am absolutely sick and tired of it!’ – Moose’s brilliant rant on VAR

After half-time Bernado Silva completed his hat-trick, with goals from David Silva, Sergio Aguero, Riyad Mahrez, Nicolas Otamendi and Kevin De Bruyne completing the 8-0 rout.

Foster, the former Manchester United glovesman, described City as relentless and admitted he was glad they only netted FIVE before the break.

“They were scary at times,” Foster said afterwards.

“It was just relentless. “To get in at 5-0 at half-time I was over the moon.

“As a goalie, coming here in the first place it’s almost an achievement to keep it at one or two goals. You could see them opening us up and the chances developing in front of your eyes.

“It was absolutely no fun. In all honesty, it could have been double digits. They will do it to somebody, there will be a nine or ten out there soon.”

Saturday was not the first time City have ruthlessly dispatched Watford, having thumped them 6-0 in the FA Cup final in May.

They also beat the Hornets by the same scoreline at Vicarage Road in September 2017.

Despite improving their goal difference, City remain five points behind league leaders Liverpool, who returned to the top of the Premier League table with Sunday’s defeat of Chelsea.
