Manchester City – Watford – Premier League Prediction and Preview: 2nd December 2018
Manchester City ranks first in the Premier League rankings with 59 points accumulated in 21 championship games. Guardiola’s team is one of the best teams this year in the big European championships. Citizens had an incredible 19 consecutive wins in the championship, managing to break away from the rest of the teams. Manchester City, however, surprisingly pulled out of the Crystal Palace field (score 0-0), interrupting the series of consecutive wins. Englezul R. Sterling is the team’s top scorer in the championship, and he has managed to score 13 times so far. The hosts will not be able to count on Benjamin Mendy, Phil Foden, Vincent Kompany, Gabriel Jesus and Kevin De Bruyne, who are injured.
The probable team: Ederson – Danilo, Otamendi, Stones, Walker – Gundogan, Fernandinho, Silva – Sane, Aguero, Sterling
On the other hand, Watford is ranked 10th in the league’s first league in England, with the team managing to score 25 points after 21 stages. The guests crossed a very weak period with 4 defeats recorded in the last 5 championship games. After the 2-1 victory over Leicester, Watford slipped his previous home ground, 2-1 in front of Swansea. Frenchman A. Doucoure is the best marker of the team in the championship with the 6 goals scored so far. Tommy Hoban, Craig Cathcart, Nathaniel Chalobah, Younes Kaboul, Kiko Femenia, Will Hughes and Migues Britos will not be on the move due to medical problems.
The probable team: Gomes – Janmaat, Prodl, Kabasele, Holebas – Cleverley, Capoue, Doucoure – Pereyra, Gray Richarlison
Manchester City has an extraordinary season, dominating the UK Championship. Fatigue, however, is likely to say its word during this crowded period, the proof being a white draw from the previous stage. Taking into account the injuries of Gabriel Jesus and Kevin De Bruyne, Manchester City will not have a very easy job. On the other side, Watford is an unpredictable team, so this time I opt for a goal-based forecast.
