Raheem Sterling believes Manchester City are built to win football games after their 3-1 win at Watford.
Bernardo Silva scored twice in a 3-1 win that propelled City to the top of the Premier League, following Sterling’s opener.
Watford fought off Cucho Hernandez, who continued his own shot after he bounced off a post, to deny Pep Guardiola’s side a ninth clean sheet of the season.
Sterling told the town’s website, “(It was) good. Good management of the game, really disappointing to concede in the end but overall I thought we fought really well.
“We had a few chances that we could have seized in the first half to finish, but a great victory in the end. “
City took advantage of Chelsea’s loss to West Ham earlier in the day with a seventh straight win in all competitions, moving up from Liverpool who won 1-0 at Wolves to briefly reach the top.
“That’s all we can keep doing is keep winning football games. This is what this football club is built for, we just have to keep doing it, ”said the City forward.
He added: “They are a winning team, a team that challenges every three days and we continue to do it, we have been doing it for many years now and we will continue to do it.”
Watford goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann remained optimistic after the game, insisting that games against Manchester City will not determine the success of the Hornets’ campaign.
“These are not the kind of games that will define our season,” the goalkeeper said on his club’s website.
“When the fixture list came out this summer we always knew it would be tough to score points in that span, but we have proven that we can compete with some of the best in the league in our last few games. , which is very positive. “
He added: “The good team won today, but we tried until the end. It’s been a tough week for us, facing Leicester, Chelsea and Manchester City in quick succession, but the games ahead are really important now.
