Manchester City extend their lead in the Premier League table by five points after goals from Leroy Sane and Riyad Mahrez gave them a win at Watford.

Leroy Sane chest-in the opening goal from Mahrez cross towards the end of first half after early saves from Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster.

Riyad Mahrez doubled City’s lead six minutes after half-time from Gabriel Jesus’ cut back.

Abdoulaye Doucoure pulled back a late goal for Watford. The host pressed hard in the closing five minutes creating a nervy ending for City but could not rescue a draw.

Manchester City move five points clear of second-placed Liverpool who will travel to Burnley on Wednesday to try to close the gap once again.
