"I think every player believes, but sometimes in a bad situation or moment we were not able to overcome the situation", he said.

Centre-backs Younes Kaboul, Sebastian Prodl and Craig Cathcart are all out with knocks, while Miguel Britos continues to serve his suspension, leaving the Hornets somewhat bare at the back.

Up front, Roberto Pereyra (groin) and Mauro Zarate (cruciate ligament) are the men who will not play any part on Saturday.

"The way we played as a team, we are so happy", the Spaniard added.

Pep Guardiola says he will take various factors into account each game when deciding on using Aguero and Jesus together.

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.

Englishman Andre Gray could lead the line, as he did against the Saints with the young Brazilian Ricarlison pushing up on the left and Carillo on the right.

Silva will be forced to field a makeshift back four in a repeat of last season's final game against the same opposition.

Watford had started the day hoping to reach the summit themselves but a quickfire double by Aguero either side of the half-hour mark soon erased that unlikely prospect.

Sergio Aguero has six goals and one assist in four previous appearances against Watford in all competitions.

Pep Guardiola's side made it 15 goals in three games as it followed up thumping victories over Liverpool and Feyernood to end Watford's unbeaten start to the league.

The global superstar gushed over Guardiola, but he would have expected his Watford side give a much better account of themselves than on the Catalan's last visit to Vicarage Road.

Guardiola insists this does not mean his players lacked belief previously, but it is important to build on what they have.

Sergio Aguero, though, is in menacing form and with his partnership with Gabriel Jesus blossoming well, City are likely to get past the hosts... only just. In England there is a bit more: "Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City".

He said: "The big clubs win the games and that is the big difference".
