So far this season Watford have played four, winning and drawing twice.
A frightening return of nine unanswered goals in their previous two outings adds fuel to the belief Pep Guardiola's Citizens are hitting their stride.
In the absence of the Belgian defender, Nicolas Otamendi and John Stones are likely to continue as the central defensive pairing, with Benjamin Mendy and Kyle Walker the full-backs on either side of the duo. For those who wrote him off last season, this was an emphatic reminder of his devastating ability in front of goal.
His prolific strike partner Sergio Aguero is just as happy when facing Watford.
In the early game Crystal Palace failed to benefit from the Roy Hodgson effect as Steven Davis's early goal and two saves by Fraser Forster helped Southampton beat the Premier League's bottom club 1-0 at Selhurst Park.
"We're unbeaten with eight points from four games so it's a fantastic start to the season".
Aguero is renowned for absolutely demolishing Premier League defences on his day but last season was a relatively quiet one by his standards as he struggled to establish himself under Guardiola.
Jennifer Garner cries over 'Hamilton' while delirious on anesthesia
Miranda lovingly shared the video , saying Garner had shared it with him past year and he couldn't believe she posted it online. From what we can gather, a song from the musical Hamilton was playing during her procedure which made her cry out of pure joy.
"There are plenty of goals in the team", he told United's website.
And Sergio Aguero was City's goal hero - yet again.
Guardiola's side has scored 15 goals in three matches since the worldwide break, following 5-0 and 4-0 wins over Liverpool and Feyernood respectively.
Swansea brought Tottenham back to earth in a scoreless draw at Wembley, three days after Spurs tore apart Borussia Dortmund. A lot of it is down to Heurelho Gomes, the veteran Brazilian goalkeeper who has been a rock between the sticks for the Hornets.
Watford missed out on the chance to go top of the Premier League.
"I don't want just two or three players defending or trying to score goals, I want everyone defending and everyone attacking".
It would also put Watford top of the Premier League table for 22 hours at least, with Chelsea and Manchester United playing on Sunday afternoon.
"Maybe we don't have time for that".
