Watford vs Manchester City key stats

  • Only Norwich and Newcastle have conceded more than Watford’s 26 goals so far.
  • Man City’s last three games (including Champions League) have ended in 2-1 victories.
  • Watford’s last six games have seen 23 goals (3.83 goals per game).
  • Out of the 29 league goals Man City have scored, 15 have come in the first half and 14 in the second.

Watford’s losing habit

No Premier League team has lost more than Watford’s nine matches, with six of these coming in their last eight.

However, four of these over the past month and a half have come at the hands of Liverpool, Arsenal, Leicester, and Chelsea so Watford haven’t exactly had an easy run.

Unfortunately for Watford it isn’t going to get any easier as they face Man City, winners of six straight games in all competitions.

City on fire

Man City are showing no sign of losing games lately and worryingly for opposition defences the goals are coming from everywhere.

City’s 29 Premier League goals so far have come from 13 different goal scorers, with Bernardo Silva netting three in his last four games.

With top spot in their Champions League group secured, Pep Guardiola will have license to field the strongest possible side against Watford.

Watford vs Manchester City predictions

Watford leak goals at a horrific rate as of late and we can’t see this stopping when Man City come to town. Five of Watford’s last seven games have seen over 2.5 goals and we expect that to continue here.

However, the 4/9 price on this is prohibitive, we believe Watford can score so why not go for another Man City 2-1 win priced at 9/1.

Despite being 17th in the league, only six teams have scored more goals than Watford, they are capable of scoring at least one against City. We predict that both teams will score.
