Manchester City Preview – Can the Citizens get all three points?

Manchester City are on a six-game unbeaten run in the Premier League, winning four and drawing two. On Wednesday night, second-half goals from Riyad Mahrez, Phil Foden and Bernardo Silva gave City a 3-0 home success over Brighton & Hove Albion.

The 3-2 loss to Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad back in February remains Man City’s only league defeat since October. They have drawn two of the last four, but Pep’s boys have been in outstanding form for months. If they win their remaining matches, the Manchester giants will be crowned champions of England once again.

Our betting prediction:
Man City to win both halves

(odds taken 1026 GMT, Friday 22 April)

With Liverpool pushing them all the way, Man City will be looking for no less than three points here. The hosts are the overwhelming favourites, with the bookies offering just 1/10.

Watford Preview – Hornets to suffer 23rd league defeat?

Watford have had a tough first season back in the Premier League. At present, the Hornets sit second from bottom, seven points away from safety. They have picked up just six wins, drawn four times and have lost 22 of their 32 fixtures.

Watford have been in miserable form of late, winning just one of their last eight games. Under Roy Hodgson, the Hertfordshire club have picked up just two wins and have fallen to eight defeats from 12.

Manchester City vs Watford Betting Advice

Man City were too strong for the Hornets at Vicarage Road when the teams met earlier in the season. Bernardo Silva helped himself to a brace after Raheem Sterling kicked things off. Juan Camilo Hernandez pulled one back late on.

The Citizens have a ridiculously good record in this fixture in recent times, winning the last 14 league and cup fixtures. Watford’s last win against City came in March 1989.


Key Facts – Manchester City vs Watford Betting Tip

  • Man City are top of the Premier League table

Man City usually make light work of Watford, and we can see the champions securing a routine home win on Saturday. Take a punt on Man City to be winning at half time and full time at the top price of 4/9. We also fancy the hosts to win both halves at 5/6.

Raheem Sterling opened the scoring when the teams met at Vicarage Road several months back, and the England international is priced at 4/1 to score the opening goal of this game.
