Watford Preview – Can Watford confirm survival?

Despite being at Vicarage Road for this upcoming clash against Manchester City, Watford face a huge task in avoiding defeat here as The Hornets seek to secure their Premier League survival with just two matches of the Premier League season remaining.

However, there is a glimmer of hope for the hosts as Watford have recently posted back-to-back wins at home against Norwich City and Newcastle United, both by 2-1 margins, and The Hornets earlier defeated the new Premier League champions, Liverpool, 3-0 so the hosts know that they are capable of pulling off an upset.

Previous exchanges though suggest that the goals market looks the safer ploy here as each of the last seven meetings between these two teams have resulted in three goals or more being scored while 12 of Watford’s 18 home matches have also seen over 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Man City Preview – Can Manchester City respond?

Although Manchester City have won their last three Premier League matches on the trot, the visitors will still be smarting over their shock 2-0 FA Cup defeat against Arsenal and manager, Pep Guardiola, will be demanding a reaction from his players in this clash at Vicarage Road.

Victories in the Premier League against Newcastle United 5-0, Brighton 5-0 and Bournemouth 2-1 have at least nailed down the runners-up spot for City who now hold a 12-point lead over 3rd placed Chelsea, but results away from home this season have been very uncharacteristic of this Manchester City outfit.

An away record of 10-1-7 41/22 includes four defeats from the last six matches on the road for Manchester City, so perhaps this clash against Watford represents a potential banana-skin for Guardiola’s side, especially with Watford fighting for Premiership survival; instead, the goals market appeals here as 12 of Manchester City’s 18 away matches have also been over 2.5 goals.
