Reasons for betting on Watford vs Manchester City tip
If we look at the standings of the Premier League, this should be the derby of the round. Watford who is occupying a high 4th place is hosting Manchester City one of the two clubs from the same town who are at the top of the league. The Hornets are very well this season, and they still haven’t suffered a single defeat. The same situation is with their opponent. Manchester City started playing exceptionally good this week, and convincing victories against Liverpool and Feyenoord are the primary evidence. We can expect an exciting match at Vicarage Road and the referees is going to be Anthony Taylor.
After 4 rounds Watford is at the spot which leads to the Champions League. The Hornets had only one defeat throughout the whole season, and it happened in English Football Cup. But what is fascinating is the fact that they still haven’t won at Vicarage Road. In 3 games so far when counting League Cup, they have two draws and one defeat. 7 of the previous 9 games terminated with less than 3 goals. Marco Silva tries to slow down the game and when Watford scores they are relying on defense and counter attacks. They have massive problems with injuries. Younes Kaboul, Miguel Angel Britos, Sebastian Prodl are all doubtful for this match, and this could be a huge blow for the hosts.
Manchester City overview
9 goals in the last two games are a clear proof that this team started playing as they should. At first, City demolished Liverpool with 5-0, and then they went abroad to Netherlands and smashed Feyenoord in the opening game of the Champions League 0-4. It was their 4 straight game without a defeat, and the second in a row in which Gabriel Jesus and Aguero scored both. What was impressive is the way in which Manchester City dominated the pitch at the famous De Kuip Stadium. It seems that the machinery shifted into a higher gear and Sky-Blues are looking terrifying at the moment.
Head to head matches
Citizens have 5 straight victories over Watford. Some of them were pretty convincing like the one in the most recent encounter. Pep Guardiola and his team humiliated Watford at Vicarage Road 0-5.
In 16 matches played throughout history, Citizens have 9 victories and Hornets only 4. The goal difference is in favor of Manchester City 29:14.
Prediction for Watford vs Manchester City tip
Although they had midweek obligations and that Watford is one hell of an opponent, Manchester City is a much better team. This is going to be a tough game for them, but in our opinion, they are much closer to victory.
For the second suggestion, we will take Manchester City wins without conceding. They have two games in a row where they kept clean sheets, therefore why not extend that streak.
