With such a small margin of error in the Premier League title race, Pep Guardiola will surely relish a game against one of the worst teams in the division, but City cannot afford to rest on their laurels.
Wednesday’s win over Brighton put his side back at the top of the table and the champions could stay there with a win, ensuring they finish yet another weekend at the top.
Watford, meanwhile, are closing in on a crash after a one-game winning streak in their last league games. Frankly, Roy Hodgson just didn’t have the desired effect.
