Watford vs Man City match preview
Manchester City will enter the game as firm favourites, despite having already secured their European qualification for next season – essentially leaving them with very little to play for.
Conversely the underdogs, Watford, do need the points – as they hope to put some distance between themselves and the relegation zone. Having just sacked manager, Nigel Pearson, the club is desperate to stay in the league.
The Hornets are doing comparatively well though, with two wins from their last four games. They will hope that form can see them take another all-important, against the odds victory tonight.
Despite their obvious quality, City have shown weakness recently, losing to both Southampton and Arsenal in July. Most recently, Arsenal scored a 2-0 win over the blues to send them crashing out of the FA Cup at the semi final stage.
