In the aftermath of the shock sacking of Nigel Pearson, Watford struggled to ease their relegation fears, as they were pounded by a Manchester City inspired by Raheem Sterling.

Pearson was the Monday campaign 's third managerial casualty for the Hornets, leaving Under-23 coach Hayden Mullins and his assistant Graham Stack in charge of their final two games.

And they could hardly have had a harder first assignment than against City, who completed the double over them with this victory, at an aggregate 12-0 score – a joint Premier League record in a single season for one team against another.

Sterling took the game away from the home side before half-time, firing in a rising shot to open the scoring before doubling the advantage by following up his own saved penalty – awarded for a foul on him by Will Hughes.
