Manchester City hit six against Watford to go top

They have yet to lose a match in Premier League play. Defender Miguel Britos is suspended for the game. A late goal by Sevilla last Wednesday kept the Reds from taking home three points in the Champions League. Although he has been used deeper this year, he is able to be just as creative, while allowing City to field Aguero, Jesus, Sterling and others ahead of him to pull apart teams with his clever passing.

"It is a physical team with [Abdoulaye] Doucoure, fast players with [Andre] Gray and many new players, a good manager".

Against Manchester City, Watford will be without the crocked Younes Kaboul, Craig Cathcart and Sebastian Prodl, while Miguel Britos is still banned.

That was so rarely the case last season but City, right now, are on a roll.

Despite Watford's league failings against City over the last 28 years, Marco Silva has instilled great confidence and solidity upon taking the reigns from Walter Mazzarri.

Sergio Aguero is the favourite to score in the game at 4/5 odds.

The two Manchester clubs, United and City, will be looking to maintain their places at the top of the Premier League by winning their respective matches this weekend. They shouldn't be slept on in the Premier League and they'll cause problems for this Manchester City squad.

Three points tomorrow would be a real statement from Watford and put to bed a long, fruitless spell of games against City. This includes an exciting 3-3 tie against Liverpool to open the season.

As many have pointed out - the Pep effect!

"It was so good, especially after an away game in the Champions League", Guardiola said at the end of a week which also yielded 5-0 and 4-0 victories over Liverpool and Feyenoord.

Watford's record against Man City is poor, to say the least.

With Watford though, Silva has a side that can be a tough outfit to deal with in the final third as well, and that's where Guardiola's true test lies. Gabriel Jesus did well to work his way past a couple of challenges and find David Silva and the skipper's quick-thinking caught out the home defence and Gomes as his low cross found Aguero who tapped home from two yards out. Minutes after a denied penalty shout from Newcastle, Lascelles rose high over the defense on a corner to meet another Ritchie cross and nod it into goal for the 2-1 lead and the eventual win.
