Raheem Sterling is in sensational form.

The latest example of his quality came with an incredible 13-minute hat-trick against Watford. City won 3-1, breaking down a resolute Watford side thanks to Sterling’s ability, a result that moved us four points clear at the top of the table, for the time being at least.

Sterling said afterwards: "I don’t know exactly what it was but i was praying they’d give it to us. Slightly fortunate but we deserved it.

"I just want to improve. This year’s no different. I don’t want to just score goals but important goals and help the team.

"We’re just taking it a game at a time. We know we’re strong - we’re contenders. We’re just doing our part. Now, we’ll recover and go again.

"We’re just focused on one game at a time. Today, it was really difficult and it will be a difficult run-in but we’re focused.

"Massive win. Difficult in first half to break them down. Really compact and solid Came out second half got slight luck needed.

"We kept going, kept pressing got what we deserved."
