Watford vs Manchester City Betting Tip and Predictions. In the last match on Saturday in Premier League, Watford host Manchester City. Read the betting preview below before you place your bets.
Watford promoted in Premier League last season and their main goal is to avoid relegation and stay in the best football league in England. Their performance is very good this season and at the half of the season they are standing at the 9th position. After 5 rounds without defeat, home side lost in the previous round against Spurs with the late goal of Son Heung-Min. They will be fully motivated to make positive result against one of the main candidate for the title this season. Their best player Ighalo, who scored 14 goals for Watford this season, is in the great form and he will be the most dangerous player for Manuel Pellegrini‘s side. Big blow for home side is the absence of Nathan Ake, who got the red card in the previous round against Tottenham and he is suspended for this game.
Manchester City are one of the main candidates for the title this season and they are doing good job so far. They failed to beat Leicester City in the previous round, so they have to beat Watford in order to stay in a race for the title. Man City play very good upfront their supporters, but their away performance is not impressive (3-3-3). Visitors failed to win in their last 6 away matches (0-3-3), so they have to improve their away performance if they want to be serious candidate for the title. City have on one of the best squads in Premier League, but they have no results, so there are some rumors that Pep Guardiola could replace current manager Manuel Pellegrini.

Watford vs Manchester City Prediction
Visitors are favorites to win this game, according to bookies, but I can’t underestimate home side. Watford play very good this season and I won’t be surprised if they stay unbeaten today. Even if they lose I don’t believe it would be more than one goal difference.
