Watford v Manchester City Betting Preview – Premier League 21st May 3.00pm

A win for Manchester City at Vicarage Road on the final day of the season will see them secure a top three finish which puts them into the UEFA Champions League next season, which has been the ultimate goal for them since failing to get into the title race. There is a chance that they could be overhauled by both Liverpool and Arsenal if they fail to get their win, but the Hornets have slumped badly to a five-match losing streak at the moment and may not offer up too much opposition for the Citizens.

Watford v Manchester City Betting Tips

Manchester City needs one last big effort to land three points and that will guarantee them the prize of playing Champions League football next season. That is something of a victory for them this season under Pep Guardiola. City have found some form lately having won their last three league games in a row, with ten goals netted in that sequence. They are on a seven-match unbeaten streak of league form now (W5 D2), so are ticking over nicely, but they have won just one of their last four away from home though in a W1 D2 L1 record. So that does raise a little question mark, but City have collected four clean sheets in their last six league games and Man City to win to nil at William Hill is a quote of 7/5. The Citizens have scored 2+ goals in six of the last nine league clashes between the two sides, including exactly two goals in each of the last three. A Manchester City 2-0 correct score at William Hill is trading at a price of 13/2 and up in the anytime goalscorer market, golden boy Gabriel Jesus is at 10/11 with Sergio Aguero at 4/5.

Earlier in the season when the two sides met, City took a 2-0 home win over the Hornets. City have gone W11 D2 L5 away from home this season. Watford have failed to beat Manchester City in their last seven league encounters (D2 L5), losing each of the previous three Premier League contests. They are well out of form at the moment and in midweek, Walter Mazzarri said that he will be leaving the club in the summer, so the search for a new manager is on, with Claudio Ranieri the early favourite. Watford are on a five-match losing streak in the Premier League at the moment, but gave a good account themselves in a 3-2 loss at Chelsea in midweek, albeit against a much-changed Blues side. The Hornets have put up a decent W3 L1 record in their last four games at Vicarage Road, but telling perhaps that loss was against top four side Liverpool in their last game at Vicarage Road. Both teams to score at William Hill is a 10/11 price but the Hornets have failed to score in five of their last seven games. Watford’s overall home record this season reads W8 D4 L6.

Watford v Manchester City Predictions

Man City away win: The Citizens have to pull out a win in this one to avoid any drama on the final day and they have found their scoring touch lately and should be able to get past Watford who can’t find a way to win at the moment. City by a margin of a couple of goals looks value.
