Pep Guardiola saluted the vast array of attacking talent at his disposal after Manchester City tore Watford apart in a record-breaking 8-0 victory at the Etihad Stadium.

Last weekend's shock loss to Norwich was put firmly in the rear-view mirror, thanks to by the club's biggest top-flight victory, sealed by five goals in a remarkable 18 opening minutes.

Bernardo Silva's hat-trick was complemented by efforts David Silva, Sergio Aguero, Riyad Mahrez, Nicolas Otamendi and star man Kevin De Bruyne as Watford fell to their heaviest ever league defeat.

"In the middle up front, we have a huge amount of talent and that is why we've done what we have done. The difference is the talent we have up front.

"People still don't understand - journalists, pundits and former players - losing games is part of life. I have the same feeling now that I had after Norwich, so that was not a bad performance. We can lose the games; the important thing is the approach and how we react."

City eventually finished just short of Manchester United's Premier League record 9-0 victory over Ipswich Town in 1995, but their historic victory secured their place among some of the competition emphatic wins.

Middlesbrough 8-1 Man City, May 2008

City have been on the receiving end of a similar scoreline - Richard Dunne's 15th-minute dismissal contributed significantly and allowed Stewart Downing to score the first of his two goals from the resulting penalty. The much-maligned Afonso Alves bagged a hat-trick, with Adam Johnson, Fabio Rochemback and Jeremie Aliadiere also on target. Elano's consolation could not disguise an ignominious end to Sven-Goran Eriksson's City reign.
