Premier League Match Preview: Watford vs Manchester City

After their 100% start to the season, the wheels look to have really come off for Watford, who now have just two wins to their name from their last 10. Things don’t get any easier for the Hornets here either as they welcome a Manchester City side unbeaten since September to Vicarage Road.

What’s more, City has won their last eight meetings with Watford, and have scored 11 goals in their last two visits to Vicarage Road. Watford may have been solid at the back under Gracia, but few will give them a fighting chance of keeping City out.

Indeed, this should be a routine win for the visitors.
