In the English Premier League, Manchester City is set to play against Watford at home at the Etihad Stadium.
Manchester City bounced back strongly following their shock defeat to Norwich by winning 3-0 in Ukraine. It was a very impressive performance by the Sky Blues as they controlled 54% of the possession and completed close to 700 passes at an accuracy of over 90%. Manchester City had 18 shots which Riyad Mahrez, Gabriel Jesus and Ilkay Gundogan scoring goals. Despite the loss of Norwich, Manchester City have played exceptionally well this season and they still look like the best team in the competition. I am expecting Manchester City to be back to their best for this match.
On the other side of the coin, Watford have had a poor start to the season and they have already changed their manager. The Hornets were fortunate in their previous match as they managed a 2-2 draw against a disorganized Arsenal side. Watford were trailing for most of the match but due to errors by Arsenal, they were able to salvage a point from that match. Despite that result, Watford still look to be struggling as they only have 2 points from 5 games and are bottom of the ladder. Traveling to the Etihad Stadium is always a tough task but considering their recent form, it is hard to see how Watford got a result from this match. Watford and Manchester City last played each other in the final of the FA Cup. It was a one-sided match that Manchester City won 6-0. Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling both scored 2 goals each. David Silva and Kevin de Bruya both scored also.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Manchester City to win this match. Watford have been terrible this season and the team looks disorganized as they head into this match. The Sky Blues were very good midweek and they should be good enough to get the 3 points at home.
