Preview

Manchester City will look to stay ahead in Premier League title race as they host Watford on Saturday.

Pep Guardiola’s men are off a much needed 3-0 victory over Brighton in midweek, reinvigorating the team after disappointing 3-2 FA Cup semi-final defeat to Liverpool to earn a fourth win in their last six league outings.

The Hornets are, by contrast, on a run of five losses in their previous six Premier League fixtures, with defeats to Liverpool, Leeds and Brentford in their last three all but mathematically condemning Roy Hodgson’s side to relegation this term.

It should be a fun match with the contrasting styles.

Which team will come out in front?

Team News

Pep Guardiola’s side have Nathan Ake, Kyle Walker and John Stones as questionable.

Watford have Kalu, Hernandez, Sierralta and Troost-Ekong out injured.

Prediction

Manchester City 3-0 Watford
