THE TEAM NEWS

MAN CITY

  • Man City bounced back nicely from the shock loss to Norwich last weekend as they beat Shakhtar 0-3 in Ukraine in the Champions League.
  • They were handed a boost by the return of Mendy after missing several months through injury so the left-back may be phased back slowly.
  • Aguero and David Silva were both rested in Ukraine and the duo will surely come back into the starting line-up for Gundogan and Mahrez.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Fernandinho, Otamendi, Zinchenko; De Bruyne, Rodri, David Silva; Bernardo Silva, Aguero, Sterling

Unavailable: Sane (Injured), Laporte (Injured), Stones (Injured)

Doubtful: Foden (Illness)

WATFORD

  • Watford drew 2-2 against Arsenal in Quique Sanchez Flores' first match since returning to the club as they fought back well from 0-2 down.
  • Sanchez Flores switched to a 4-2-3-1 last week and will likely retain that although he may consider one or two changes for this match.
  • Deulofeu may start as the lone striker while Pereyra and Sarr could potentially come in to offer more pace and ability to retain possession.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Foster; Kiko Femenia, Dawson, Kabasele, Holebas; Doucoure, Capoue; Sarr, Cleverley, Pereyra; Deulofeu

Unavailable: Deeney (Injured), Cathcart (Injured), Success (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Watford showed great heart to fight back from two goals down to claim a point against Arsenal but this may be the worst time to be playing City at the Etihad. While City have suffered another defensive injury, the loss to Norwich has refocused them and Guardiola's men should kill the game off early.
