Watford host Manchester City in Tuesday’s Premier League teatime fixture, which the bookies have priced-up as though it’s a game that is important for both sides. It’s a must-win game for Watford as they look to stay in front of Aston Villa and Bournemouth, and three-points could well be enough to guarantee the Hornets’ Premier League status.
There is the possibility that Watford could feel the backlash of City’s defeat by Arsenal in the FA Cup semifinals, but this match will surely mean nothing to Manchester City. City already looked like they already had one eye on the Champions League Against Arsenal, and it would be no surprise if Pep Guardiola were to rest several key players here. That means a Watford win is our tip for Watford vs Man City at around 9/1.
Manchester City’s form since lockdown has been hit and miss, with easy wins over Liverpool, Newcastle, and Brighton. But they’ve also lost away at Southampton, whilst they also lost again to Arsenal at Wembley.
City’s recent record against Watford does suggest City could simply outclass their opponents, as they’ve beaten them 8-0 once and 6-0 twice since September 2017. But Watford only lost 1-2 last year in this fixture and City have nothing left to play for in the league.
This is also Nigel Pearson’s first game in charge of Watford against Man City, and he’s improved Watford’s home record considerably since his arrival. The latest poof of that being consecutive home wins against Newcastle and Norwich.
That all suggests that a Watford win is a possibility rather than a probability but, with the motivation to win firmly with Watford, our tip for Watford vs Man City must be a Watford win at a big price.
