Manchester City (4-3-3)

Ederson – 8

Made a crucial one-on-one save to dismiss Roberto Pereyra at 0-0. Rarely was it difficult then to take control of City.

Kyle Walker – 7th

Was more and more frustrated by Riyad Mahrez for him when he saw to use his pace. Improved when the game was dry.

Vincent Kompany – 8

Apparently to enjoy the trouble with Troy Deeney and if this should be his last game for the club, he will pass with a trophy.

Aymeric Laporte – 7

A quiet afternoon should not ruin his growing confidence as a leader in City's back line. Can step up if Kompany leaves.

Oleksandr Zinchenko – 6

You look much more comfortable ahead then back. Leave too much room where Watford should have exploded.

Ilkay Gundogan – 6

Gives the ball farther away than it normally does. A pleasant, if spectacular afternoon.

David Silva – 8

Set City on the road with the opening goal and continue to bring calm to Pep Guardiola's midfield.

Bernardo Silva – 8

A privilege to see. Was influential for the opening of two goals and the pass for Gabriel Jesus was of the highest quality.

Riyadh Mahrez – 6

Seen a lot of the ball, but just the quality required when he counted. Hooked for the hour.

Raheem Sterling – 8th

Finish off a great season with a performance that is not to be expected. Tore Watford to pieces in the second half with a smart brace.

Gabriel Jesus – 8.5

Trust of his manager paid to get him started. A brace and an unselfish assist for the third proved a job well done.

Replacements

Kevin De Bruyne 7.5 (Mahrez, 55min), Leroy Sane 6 (Gundogan, 73min), John Stones 7 (Silva, 79min)

NOT USED: Muric, Danilo, Aguero, Otamendi

Administrator – Pep Guardiola – 9

Complete the tweets that were once & # 39; impossible & # 39; impossible to Sir Alex Ferguson. mentioned. Also tried to start Jesus for Sergio Aguero.

Watford (4-4-2)

Heurelho Gomes – 6

He couldn't do much about most of his goals, but will be disappointed to bring down curtains on Watford's career by sending six.

Kiko Femenia – 6

Life found difficult against Zinchenko and Sterling and will be frustrated to deflect in Silva's opener.

Adrian Mariappa – 4

When the game was postponed, he lost all sense of form that was largely absent from the first half. A tough 90 minutes.

Craig Cathcart – 5

Seach composed before City went through the gears. Big holes were left blank when Watford pursued a route back into the game.

Jose Holebas – 6

Did well to cancel Mahrez's threat early, but he struggled against it and was guilty of losing Sterling for the fifth goal.

Will Hughes – 5

Always a tough question against City midfield and that proved that for Hughes. Game largely passed him by.

Etienne Capoue – 6

Neat and neat for big plays of the game and did enough to knock Gundogan off his stride. Will have interest from rivals this summer.

Abdoulaye Doucoure – 5

Lost possession in build-up to first goal and struggled to keep a lid on emotions when conversations went against him. Books.

Roberto Pereyra – 6

Was a threat in wide areas for Watford, but will be left wondering what might have been if he scored when he reached the goal early.

Gerard Deulofeu – 5.5

The hero of the semi-finals found life this much more difficult. Became a little service to work with and was the first change.

Troy Deeney – 7

Prove a key asset in the air, winning flick-ons and second balls that gave Watford a leg up. Will be disappointed that he didn't test Ederson anymore.

Replacements

Andre Gray 6 (Deulofeu, 66min), Isaac Success 5 (Pereyra, 66min), Tom Cleverley 6 (Hughes, 73min)

NOT USED: Foster, Janmaat, Kabasele, Masina

Administrator – Javi Gracia – 6

Was bold to start with two forward and can be proud to get this far. Gap in quality was obvious when the game wore on.

Referee – Kevin Friend – 7
