Man City 5-1 Watford: Jesus scores four as Cityzens go four point clear at the top
Gabriel Jesus scored his first Premier League hat-trick, claiming four goals as Manchester City’s 5-1 win over Watford extended their lead at the top.
The Brazilian netted his first in the fourth minute, converting Oleksandr Zinchenko’s low cross.
Jesus doubled City’s lead 19 minutes later with a powerful header from a superb Kevin De Bruyne centre.
Watford pulled a goal back on 28 minutes through Hassane Kamara’s first for the club.
Rodri restored City’s two-goal advantage in the 34th minute with a stunning 20-yard shot.
Jesus completed his hat-trick from the penalty spot four minutes after half-time, having been brought down by Ben Foster.
He added his fourth on 53 minutes, becoming the first City player to do so since Sergio Aguero in 2018.
A record 15th straight win over Watford puts City on 80 points, four ahead of Liverpool, who face Everton on Sunday.
