If all things were equal, if we had our best eleven players available I would be more confident going into this match. But as it stands we do will not have that luxury and may well be faced with the kind of game where we will have to grind out a result.
Watford are not coming into this game on any run of form. If anything that may make the result more of a problem. They are a team who believe they can cause an upset, seeing us look somewhat weakened through injury and squad rotation and fancying their chances. Remember how they roughed up Arsenal last season with glee? This is a match where not only do we need to secure 3 points but we also need to come through without further injury.
Sergio Aguero looks like being subject to a late fitness test. All things told this may well be the kind of match where we hold him back for the Chelsea game so he can renew his acquaintance with David Luiz. This will leave our goal threat being Gabriel Jesus. This is a game where we will need a performance from him.
It is my hope that Guardiola goes with his strongest available team to give us the best chance of winning and to believe that there will be enough recovery time between Tuesday evening and Saturday evening. I therefore hope Fabian Delph and Kyle Walker will start as full backs and that Aymeric Laporte will be partnered again by Otamendi in central defence.
Fernandinho will have to find the legs to play again. I think David Silva and Bernardo Silva should be reunited in midfield. I would look to Mahrez and Sane on the wings with Gabriel Jesus in the middle. Mahrez has had success against Watford and provides Sterling with some rest prior to Chelsea game.
It is my view that playing this team will give us the best opportunity to take 3 points and to counter the physical threat posed by Watford.Manchester City goes to Watford on Tuesday in Premier League play, aiming not to slip up and give up first place to Liverpool. City sits in first place in the league and is still undefeated with a record of 12-2-0, while Watford is in 10th place at 6-2-6. Watford could potentially get up to sixth point with a win in this one.Watford host Manchester City on English Premier League Matchday 15.
The Hornets have had a mixed start to their 2018/19 campaign. They currently sit in tenth place in the EPL. They have won six matches, drawn two and lost six. Their most impressive victory this season came in September as they shocked Tottenham Hotspur. Following this match, however, they have been unable to find their form against the other top clubs in England. The Hornets were overwhelmed by the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool. They will now face Manchester City in what will be a difficult encounter.
Since their promotion to the EPL in 2016, Watford has lost to Manchester City on all six occasions. Moreover, the Blues have enjoyed their time visiting Vicarage Road. Over the past two season, they have won 11-0 on aggregate. With an ever improving Manchester side, another rout over the Hornets could be in store.
Watford’s Adalberto Peñaranda, Pontus Dahlberg, Sebastian Prödl, Tom Cleverley and Younès Kaboul are sidelined due to injury. Étienne Capoue is suspended for this match.
Manchester City’s Claudio Bravo, Kevin De Bruyne and Benjamin Mendy are injured. Sergio Agüero is also injured. Gabriel Jesus, Bernardo Silva and İlkay Gündoğan made a surprised appearance in the match against AFC Bournemouth and are fully fit for this match.Watford are not shy in front of the net, as they have scored 17 goals in 14 EPL matches this season. Their recent two matches, however, have seen them scoreless. They will need to channel their energy should they have any hopes of upsetting the league leaders. Olympique Lyonnais seem to be the only team to have frustrated City this season, and should Watford have any hopes of overcoming City, the Hornets may try to adopt Lyon’s style of play.
Manchester City have demonstrated in the EPL, however, that it will take a valiant effort to defeat them this season. Their productivity in front of goal is remarkable, as they have scored 43 goals in 14 EPL matches. Given their current form, and their history at the Vicarage Road Stadium, it is predicted the Blues will enjoy another successful spell in Watford on Tuesday.
