The Manchester City vs. Watford match will be played on Tuesday, January 2, at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester. Manchester City is currently 1st on the table with 59 points, while Watford is 10th on the table with 25 at the moment.
In their last ten games Manchester City won eight, while two matches ended in a draw. Watford failed to defeat Manchester City in the 21st century. At the start of the season Manchester City celebrated a 6:0 victory in Watford, while the match before that ended with 5:0. Watford scored only one and conceded 17 goals in their last five games against Manchester City.
Manchester City's record breaking winning streak came to an unlikely end against Crystal Palace, but the biggest problem for Pep Guardiola are injuries that Kevin De Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus suffered in that match. The Spaniard will be without his stars in the next few weeks in the best case scenario and he will have to think about other playing options and adapting his style. Bernardo Silva might finally have a more valuable role in the squad, while Sergio Aguero and David Silva will be the most important attacking threat for the rivals.
