Watford vs Manchester City
English Premier League
Date: Tuesday, 4 December 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Vicarage Road Stadium (Watford).
The well congested schedule is about to be continued for Watford on Tuesday night when they host reigning champions Manchester City in the mid-week’s 15th round of Premier League. The host suffered a tough 0-3 loss to Liverpool after the international break and we’re afraid they will likely face the same destiny when the red-hot Citizens come to visit Vicarage Road Stadium.
Pep Guardiola’s machinery has been enjoying a phenomenal run of form over the last couple of months. The Citizens won five on the spin in the Premier League and they notched a brutal 19-goal tally in the process (almost four goals per game). They shipped only two goals along the way. The thread includes a 0-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley as well as the 0-4 drubbing of West Ham United last weekend in the capital.
Man City won 11 and drew 2 of opening 13 matches of the season and they deservedly hold the top spot in the Premier League ladder.
Watford vs Manchester City: Head-to-head
Watford were not a tricky opposition for Manchester City over the last couple of years.
The Citizens won eight in a row against the Hornets.
Man City bagged as many as 11 goals without conceding a single in last two visits to Vicarage Road Stadium.
Watford vs Manchester City: Prediction
The visitors did slip-up last week when they were held by Lyon to a 2-2 draw in the Champions League tie at Groupama Stadium. Nevertheless, it won’t affect their UCL ambitions by any means. They head into Tuesday’s fixture against Watford in the highest of spirits with the red-hot attacking line.
Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling were especially impressive in the last couple of weeks and we expect tis duo to shine at Vicarage Road Stadium as well. Man City should be in full control from the very get go and we’ll back them to clinch a comprehensive victory in a one-sided affair in Watford.
