PREDICTION
Man City will be stung by the draw with Crystal Palace along with the injuries to Jesus and De Bruyne but they will be keen to get back to winning ways quickly. Watford have plenty of their own injuries and poor form to contend with and a fired up City should kill this game off early.

MEMORABLE MEETING
Last September saw the reverse of this fixture and once again Manchester City picked up a big win at Vicarage Road. The final day of last season saw them beat Watford 5-0, and this time around they went one better and hit the Hornets for Six as Pep Guardiola’s men gave an early glimpse of how dominant they have been this season.
