Watford will host Manchester City at Vicarage Road Stadium in Premier League on Tuesday. Manchester City are currently placed on second position with 75 points in 36 matches whereas Watford are currently placed on 17th position with 34 points in same number of matches.
1-3 defeat against fellow relegation candidates i.e West Ham United at London Stadium have increased Watford’s chances for relegation zone. They are now just three points ahead of 18th ranked Aston Villa and 19th ranked Bournemouth with just two games to play.
With just three points lead from Aston Villa and Bournemouth doesn’t sound optimistic for the Hornets, keeping in mind the fact that their remaining two games are against sides like Manchester City and Arsenal. A win for either Aston Villa or Bournemouth in this final week of top flight action could close the door for Hornets.
With Watford not given much importance ahead of this game, their opponents, Manchester City too enter in this game in a fragile mode. They were recently knocked out of FA Cup semi-finals by Arsenal. Citizens have now lost three of their ten 10 games since the restart which is a sign of their declining form. Manchester City have successfully failed to save their Premier League title and FA Cup title as well.
Manchester City have nothing to play for in Premier League with runner up spot already fixed and title already gone. But still Pep Guardiola will try to boost his team’s confidence ahead of Champions league action which is starting next month.
What will increase tension in City’s camp is their away form. They have conceded in 16 of their last 22 competitive games that they have played away from their home, and in Premier League, City have kept clean sheet in just one game out of their last four road trips.
