Pep Guardiola has targeted improvement in front of goal as his Manchester City side went top of the Premier League table.

A 3-1 win over Watford in the final game of the day on Saturday saw the champions go top of the pile.

They're one point clear of Liverpool who beat Wolves and Chelsea then are a point back again after losing 3-2 to West Ham at lunchtime.

Bernardo Silva scored twice at Vicarage Road with Raheem Sterling also finding the back of the net.

Speaking to Sky Sports at full-time Guardiola was pleased with the win but also said they could have scored more.

"A really good performance but we missed a lot of chances, hopefully next time we will convert.

"Of course you're disappointed because the game should be over quicker but you can't get frustrated.

"In football the most difficult thing is to put the ball in the net, in the last pass, the last action, that is the most difficult thing but the way we play was really good again.

"Our game was really good, we found the players when we believed we could find them and we scored three beautiful goals and we could have scored more."

Further assessing the performance, Guardiola was particularly pleased with Bernardo Silva.

The City boss previously said the Portuguese winger is the best player in the league at the moment.

Guardiola is pleased to have been proven right on this.

"After what I said, he, with the performance, he didn't make me wrong.

"So thank you, he did well.

"As a player he can play in many positions and now he's scoring goals, winning games, and this is so important to us as well."
