Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Manchester City impressed in the first half of the season, but, no doubt, they want to continue where they left in 2017. The Citizens have been producing terrific displays under Pep Guardiola this season and they are leading the chase for the Premier League title. Man City are a real force to be reckoned with at home and you should have in mind that they are eyeing their tenth consecutive win at their Etihad Stadium. Watford, on the other hand, suffered a shocking 2-1 loss to Swansea City in their last league fixture, with the relegation-threatened side scoring two late goals in Saturday’s football match. The Hornets are low on confidence ahead of the trip to Manchester and we predict that they are going to return home empty-handed. When the two teams met at Vicarage Road Stadium earlier this term Man City recorded a 6-0 win over Watford and, taking everything into account, home win should be considered.
