Watford boss aims to stop in-form Man City

Watford boss Quique Flores has said "everything is possible" ahead of his side's trip to in-form Manchester City on Saturday.

The Premier League newcomers will be looking to cause an upset at the Etihad, but City currently have a 100 per cent record and have thus far looked unstoppable.

"They have a lot of tools, and a lot of players with different characteristics - the power of (Sergio) Aguero, the intelligence of (David) Silva, the football of Yaya (Toure). We will try to solve this," Flores told Hornets PlayerHD.

"For us it is very important to prepare a good plan and a good strategy, with the idea to be competitive. In football everything is possible.

"We are happy with our results in the league and we are in a good position in the table. Of course we have a very tough opponent, but my approach does not change."

Bolt ran 19.55 seconds to finish ahead of two-time drug cheat Gatlin who took silver.

The Jamaican sprinting legend has lived up to his billing as 'the saviour of athletics' again - just four days after beating Gatlin in the 100m final.

Bolt looked strong from the start of the 200m final, charging out of the blocks and producing a solid bend which he continued to finish 0.19 secs ahead of Gatlin.

Anaso Jobodwana followed home third in a South African record time of 19.87s, pipping Panama's Alonso Edward by just two-thousandths of a second.

Zharnel Hughes finished out of the medals in fifth, but the British sprinter underlined his potential by crossing fifth in a personal best time of 20.02.

Christine Ohuruogu has failed to claim a third World Championship gold in the 400m after crossing the line 8th in the final.

The London-born athlete, who won gold in the 400m at the 2008 Beijing Olympics in the same stadium, struggled to impose herself from the start.

It was American track legend Allyson Felix who powered into a healthy lead in the opening 100m before racing home to take her 9th World Championship gold.

Kevin de Bruyne's transfer to Manchester City has not gone through yet, although Wolfsburg's director of sport Klaus Allofs has confirmed talks between the two clubs are under way.

Reports in England and Germany claimed on Wednesday night that widespread agreement had been reached between all parties, with estimates ranging from between 75 and 80 million euros for a transfer fee.

There is no agreement with De Bruyne and with Manchester City.

We have agreed to open negotiations, and that has happened, but Kevin is still a Wolfsburg player.

We are not in any rush to get this (transfer) through. The interests of both sides must be considered.

If our expectations are not fulfilled, Kevin will be playing for Wolfsburg this season, and I wouldn't mind that.

In the end, there can only be winners from this deal and that applies also to Wolfsburg. If that is not the case, then there will be no transfer.
