Man City Trounces Watford to Take FA Cup
Manchester City trounced Watford 6-0 in the FA Cup final in front of a crazed, sold-out Wembley Stadium crowd, thus becoming the first men’s team in history to win the English domestic treble.

David Silva opened the scoring with a goal in the 26th minute and Gabriel Jesus added another one in the 36th minute to give City a 2-0 halftime lead. After halftime the real onslaught began. Kevin DeBruyne scored in the 61st minute and then Jesus added a second goal in the 68th minute to give City a 4-0 lead. Then to put a capper on things, Raheem Sterling added two late goals, in the 81st and 87th minutes.
City dominated in all aspects of the match, possessing the ball for 70% of the time and outshooting Watford 23-11, and shots on target 11-2.
