Watford have been at the receiving end of some big defeats against Manchester City ever since the Abu Dhabi riches came to the club.

City are starting to win games with alarming consistency and our preview would not look elsewhere.

Correct Score odds
Manchester City have been able to register four consecutive clean sheets in the league. The last team to score past City in the league was Arsenal’s Laurent Koscielny at the start of February. Watford, though, have been able to spring goals past City in recent meetings and they may be capable of coming up with a goal in this game. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 3-1 victory for the home team.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Even though the last two league wins for Manchester City have been with under 2.5 goals, the club are among the potent going forward in the business. Even in the last six matches, City have scored more goals than any other Premier League outfit. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals while involving an opponent of this calibre.

First Goalscorer odds
Sergio Aguero failed to score in his recent game against Bournemouth and the forward also had a mediocre match by his high standards. However, he has still failed to score only three times in his last 10 games for City. Aguero’s record against Watford is exceptional with 10 goals in just six games. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Sergio Aguero.
