Manchester City have become the first English men’s team to win a domestic treble thanks to a record-equalling 6-0 win against Watford in the FA Cup final at Wembley، the Guardian said.
Watford held their own for the first quarter of the match but from the moment David Silva put City ahead in the 26th minute there looked to be no way back for Javi Gracia’s team. Silva and Raheem Sterling both won headers in the buildup before the former fired low and diagonally across Heurelho Gomes and inside the far upright.
City doubled the lead before half-time، Gabriel Jesus side-footing a superb pass by Bernardo Silva past the keeper، with Sterling making sure on the line.
Kevin De Bruyne added the third just after the hour. Jesus beat Roberto Pereyra in the air، advanced and played the ball inside for De Bruyne، who took the ball past Gomes and finished from close range after a little soft-shoe shuffle employed to bamboozle the only defender on the goal-line.
Jesus then made it 4-0، sprinting clear from halfway and beating Gomes، before Sterling first turned in another fine Bernardo Silva cross then followed up after Gomes saved his own shot.
City came close to a seventh but had to settle for matching the record win from the 1903 final، when Bury beat Derby 6-0.
