Watford – Man City, Premier League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR WATFORD - MANCHESTER CITY
Watford continues with a weak performance lately and after losing 0-3 at home from Liverpool, the hornets have also been beaten from Leicester over the weekend by 2-0. In addition, Capue received a red card, which would be a big problem against strong citizens. Watford last scored a goal in October at home and definitely their game in attack is weak lately. Watford, however, have a fairly easy schedule in the next matches, which can bring them back on the winning road and catching points.
Man City had a bit struggle with Bournemouth in the first half, but after the break he did the job. Citizens are probably quite disappointed by the strange goal of Liverpool against Everton, which helped the reds to keep the distance to only 2 points, although at the moment the difference between the two teams seems to be quite large in performance. City likes to play against Watford and usually defeats them with big results and at the moment it really does not seem like someone will stop them.
Our prediction is Under 3.5 goals at 1.63. Here we change the approach as there is a specific reason to give this forecast. First, Man City had a lot of games lately, including a heavy visit to Lyon 1 week ago in the Champions League. With the lack of some important players like Bernardo and De Bruyne, however, as big the the citizens squad is, they still have some tiredness, which is normal. Second, City have an extremely heavy clash with Chelsea on Saturday, which will be their last big test of the year away from home. Third, City has only conceded one goal as a guest in the campaign, which should not even be counted against Wolves. We expect a slightly sparse guest performance and a minimum win of 0-1, 0-2 or 1-2.
