Manchester City put in the headline performance of Saturday’s Premier League action with a stunning 8-0 defeat of a truly woeful Watford side.
Quique Sanchez Flores’ hapless Hornets were 1-0 down inside the opening minute and five goals behind within the first 20 minutes as City set a Premier League record for being the fastest team to ever take a 5-0 lead.
They added three more after the break with Bernardo Silva completing his hat-trick to go with goals from David Silva, Sergio Aguero, Riyad Mahrez, Nicolas Otamendi and Kevin De Bruyne.
Watford, still without a win after six games, remain bottom of the Premier League table with only two points and a shocking goal difference of -18.
The win moves City back into second, ahead of Leicester who had beaten Tottenham earlier in the day to rise closest to league leaders Liverpool.
James Maddison scored the Foxes’ winning goal after Ricardo Pereira cancelled out Harry Kane’s first-half opener in a match which raised further questions about VAR.
Leicester had a goal correctly ruled out for offside after a technology review, before Spurs had one of their own disallowed due to Heung-min Son being in the narrowest of offside positions.
Elsewhere, Everton’s set-piece defending cost them again as they lost to Sheffield United.
Yerry Mina put the ball into his own net from a Blades corner before Lys Mousset secured Chris Wilder’s side all three points 11 minutes from time.
There was also a win for Burnley, who beat Norwich at Turf Moor thanks to a first-half brace from Chris Wood.
