Manchester City fell behind away at Watford in the second half at the hands of an old foe, and his name is Ben Watson.
Golazooooo! Ben Watson is haunting #MCFC again. Long time ago, he scored for Wigan in last minute against Man City to win FA Cup.

The Hornets midfielder whipped in a corner just after the interval that was eventually turned into by Aleksandar Kolarov who put through his own net and gave the home side the lead.

It is not the first time the expensively assembled City squad have been undone by the sterling efforts of the red haired dynamo.
Get in Ben Watson, just like the FA Cup final hahaha

He famously scored a header right at the death in the 2013 FA Cup final while playing for former club Wigan Athletic in a dramatic affair at Wembley.
Ben Watson loves corners V City!! #bbcfootball

Questions obviously surround Kolarov’s defence abilities following the own goal, but the quality of the ball provided from a set-piece by the 30-year old caused chaos in the visitors’ backline.

Joe Hart appeared rooted to his position after the corner had wrecked the preparations within in his penalty area.
Still, we probably aren’t going to go as far as this optimistic Hornets fan….
