Watford vs Manchester City Match Preview
Watford started this season in Premier League very good and after four rounds they are standing at the 4th position with 8 points. In the first round Watford took important point against Liverpool (3-3). After that they beat Bournemouth and Southampton, while the match against Brighton was finished without winner. The match against Manchester City will be the real test for home side and they hope that can make good result against them. Watford is still unbeaten this season in Premier League, while in three of their four games they haven’t conceded a single goal. Their defence is doing a good job so far, but against team from Manchester it will be hard for them to make another clean sheet. Their first striker Andre Gray, who came from Burnley, is still looking for his first goal in PL for new club, so without any doubt he will be fully motivated to hit the net against Pep Guardiola’s men.
Manchester City share the 1st position with their city rivals and they are one of the main candidates for the title in Premier League this season. In the last match they smashed Liverpool 5-0 and showed that they have very serious and strong squad. Meanwhile, visitors played against Feyenoord in the group phase of the UEFA Champions League, so their manager Pep Guardiola will probably make some changes and rest some players. The match against Watford won’t be easy for Manchester City, but they will be looking for another three points in order to stay closer to Manchester United at the top of the table. Gabriel Jesus, who has already scored 3 goals in Premier League, and Aguero (2 goals) are doing great job in the attack, so home side will have to do their best in order to secure their net. Sterling is back from suspension, so their manager will have more options in the attack. Interesting fact is that the last six matches between Watford vs Manchester City, in all competitions, were finished with Manchester City win.

Watford vs Manchester City Predictions
Home side showed very quality football in Premier League so far and they will be looking for another good performance and try to stay unbeaten upfront their supporters. Visitors are favorites to win this game, but it seems that they have some problems in defence, so I won’t be surprised if they concede goal. I expect interesting match between Watford vs Manchester City and expect goals in both nets, so “Both teams to score/Yes” is my betting prediction for this game.
