Watford would secure their Premier League status if Aston Villa lose to Arsenal in Tuesday’s other match.

Hayden Mullins will be in charge of the Hornets after the club parted company with Nigel Pearson on Sunday.

Manchester City look to bounce back after a disappointing end in the FA Cup semi finals, falling to Arsenal.

Team News

Midfielder Etienne Capoue misses out again for Watford due to a knock.

Gerard Deulofeu (cruciate ligament), Daryl Janmaat (knee) and Isaac Success (Achilles) remain unavailable for the Hornets.

Pep Guardiola has reported no fresh injury concerns. Sergio Aguero (knee) is still sidelined.

Prediction

Should be an easy victory for City, facing a team in turmoil. I don’t believe this will be much of a challenge.

Manchester City 3-0 Watford
