However, the Argentine has six goals in as many games in all competitions this season, and has formed a lethal partnership with Jesus to catapult the red-hot blues to the Premier League summit.
Sergio Aguero was the man of the match with the sixth hat-trick of his Premier League career. Watford started the season with a 3-3 thriller at home against Liverpool, and since that game, they have not conceded a goal in the league.
Manchester City spent more than £200 million ($264 million) on new players during the recent transfer window.
Gabriel Jesus was involved in the move and he then grabbed a third goal with a decent finish into the corner but he did look offside.
Manchester City showed Watford no mercy, while Liverpool dropped points at Anfield in Saturday's English Premier League action.
We can see a lot of goals in this game and are backing on more than 2.5 goals as our prediction.

Current boss Silva said: "We analysed what happened last season and we know, for the last game, there were six centre-backs missing through injury".
City had 28 shots in total with 10 on target - five in each half - while individually, David Silva had 88 touches, completing 93% of his passes with two assists, and De Bruyne also impressed making four key passes and setting up the opener. "He was so important last season, and he'll be so important this season", Guardiola added.
Summer recruit Mohamed Salah's tying goal secured a point for the Reds but even he can't match the brilliance of Mane, who is serving a three-match suspension after being sent off against Manchester City last weekend.
