Premier League Leaders Manchester City survived a late scare to see off Watford 2-1 at Vicarage Road on Tuesday night.

City were camped in Watford’s half for most of the first half and took the lead on 40 minutes as Leroy Sane chested home Riyad Mahrez’s dangerous cross.

Provider Mahrez then turned scorer in the second half, slotting past Foster with a controlled finish from Gabriel Jesus’ cut-back, before Abdoulaye Doucoure made for a nervy ending with a messy late goal at 85th minute.

But City held on, and the result means they remain unbeaten this season and five points above Liverpool, who play at Burnley on Wednesday night. Watford are down to 11th.
