Watford comes to this match after a home 1-2 loss against Tottenham, putting an end to a 5 match sequence with no losses. Despite this loss, coach Quique Flores should use the same defensive strategy, trying to explore counterattacks. The main offensive reference of the team is Ighalo. However, Quique will not be able to count on the usual left winger, Nathan Aké, who is recovering from an injury.

Confirmed Lineup: Gomes, C. Cathcart, A. Nyom, M. Britos, J. Holebas, A. Abdi, José Jurado, E. Capoue, B. Watson, T. Deeney, O. Ighalo.
Coach: Quique Sánchez Flores.

Analysis of Manchester City

The away team is currently in the 3rd position of the league, with 36 points won, after 11 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Sunderland, by (4‑1). In the last match, they tied in an away match against Leicester City, by (0‑0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, since they have won 12 points in away matches and 24 at their stadium, with 29 goals scored and 12 conceded at home, against 8 goals scored and 8 conceded in away matches. In the last 9 away league matches Manchester City has a record of 3 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses, so they have won 12 points out of 27 possible.

In this competition, they haven’t won any of the last 6 away matches. In their away league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑0 (5 out of 9 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition.

In 19 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 5 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

Manchester City comes to this match after a draw against Leicester, registering the second consecutive match with no losses. After this draw Manchester City should present an offensive strategy, attacking preferably through the left wing, taking advantage of the great form moment of De Bruyne. Fernando, Zabaleta, Kompany and Samir Nasri are still recovering from injuries.

Confirmed Lineup: J. Hart, N. Otamendi, B. Sagna, E. Mangala, A. Kolarov, David Silva, K. De Bruyne, R. Sterling, Y. Touré, Fernandinho, S. Agüero.
Coach: M. Pellegrini.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario is that there will be more goals in the second half. Analysing the stats and the form of both teams we expect a balanced match in the first half and more goal opportunities in the second, since the forwards will have more freedom, given the accumulated fatigue that should be more noticeable in this period.
