Watford vs Manchester City Prediction: Premier League Match on 04.12.2021
Premier League champions Manchester City will be looking for a fifth straight win in the league this weekend, as they travel to Vicarage Road. Watford are just three points above the drop zone having lost their last two matches.
Premier League Preview
Manchester City have looked very formidable in their most recent fixtures, as they have kept tabs on the league leaders Chelsea. However, no team in the Premier League is in better form than Pep Guardiola’s side, as City have won each of their last four league fixtures.
Still, they remain a point behind Chelsea as we enter the testing festive period of the season. City made light work of Aston Villa in the recent round of midweek fixtures, as they cruised to a 2-1 success at Villa Park. The scoreline may have been close, but City should have arguably won by more such was their dominance.
The game was effectively over as a contest in the first half, as City went into the break two up. Ruben Dias opened the scoring in the match, before Bernardo Silva scored an unbelievable second for City.
Watford’s miserable run of form continued in midweek, as they lost for the fourth time in five games. Their last victory was at home against Manchester United. The Hornets are just three clear of the drop zone, but their inferior goal difference does mean that they could potentially drop into the bottom three with a defeat this weekend.
Watford would have counted themselves as very unlucky in midweek, as they were eventually beaten by Chelsea. The Hornets gave as good as they got in that fixture, and few would have argued against them deserving a draw. Emmanuel Bonaventure levelled the scored before the break, but the Blues stole the points with just over 15 minutes remaining.
Watford vs Manchester City Head to Head
City’s record in this fixture is extremely dominant, as they have won 13 of the previous 14 meetings. The only game that they didn’t win was a 1-1 draw in April 2007. Since then, City have won the last ten against the Hornets, and have scored 12 goals in the previous two league fixtures.
Watford vs Manchester City Prediction
Watford showed some bright moments in their narrow loss against Chelsea in midweek. However, it would be difficult to look past anything other than a comfortable day for Guardiola’s side at Vicarage Road on Saturday. We could see them winning 2-0.
