STREAM LIVE WATFORD v MANCHESTER CITY

After playing very well against Chelsea but losing 2-1 at home in midweek, Watford can certainly cause an upset and their recent 4-1 win against Manchester United showcased their attacking threat. But this is a huge challenge for Ranieri, especially just a few days after facing Chelsea. Injuries haven’t been kind to the Hornets either as Ismaila Sarr will be missing for a little while in what is a huge blow. Emmanuel Dennis, Josh King and Cucho Hernandez are stepping up in his absence, and both have the ability to create and score goals out of nothing. Watford go into this clash just three points above the relegation zone.

At the other end of the table Guardiola’s City are in fine form despite the Man City manager calling their injury issues an ’emergency’ situation. With Phil Foden, Jack Grealish and Kevin de Bruyne returning over the last week, things are easing in that department. The likes of Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus have all stood tall with several key attacking talents out and City have won six games on the trot in all competitions (they sit second in the PL table, one point behind leaders Chelsea) and have won 10 of their last 13 games in the Premier League. They also have 13-straight wins against Watford in all competitions and have outscored the Hornets 18-0 in their last three meetings.
