MANCHESTER (Reuters) - Manchester City issued the perfect response to their first domestic loss since January by posting their biggest-ever Premier League win as a bewildered Watford could not cope with the relentless champions on Saturday.

Defensive mistakes cost City dear last weekend as newly-promoted Norwich City subjected Pep Guardiola's men to their first league defeat since they were beaten 2-1 by Newcastle United almost eight months ago.

The champions were expected to fight back following last week's defeat and Watford were powerless to stop a rampaging City. Further goals from Sergio Aguero, Riyad Mahrez, Bernardo Silva and Nicolas Otamendi gave City a 5-0 lead in under 18 minutes -- the fastest a team has scored five times in Premier League history.

Riyad Mahrez and De Bruyne both had good chances to score City's ninth but in the end they fell one short.
