Manchester City Starting XI Prediction vs Watford FC

Share

Manchester City have overtaken Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table finally, and now the idea of winning a quadruple doesn’t seem so crazy. Well, it’s still a crazy long shot, but now not as long.

For Liverpool supporters, the anxiety and stress levels are just ramping up. Reds fans shouldn’t expect City to drop any points tomorrow, as the Citizens are strongly favored at home over Watford, despite a whole slew of injuries. Even with all the injuries though, Pep Guardiola still has plenty to choose from, so let’s make a guess at who he might select for this one.

Despite the fact that they have won five in a row, City has only scored once in the first half of their last five fixtures. So that will be an interesting stat to watch this weekend.
