With the margin for error in the Premier League title race so small, Pep Guardiola will surely relish a game against one of the division’s worst sides but City cannot afford to rest on their laurels.
Wednesday’s win over Brighton took his side back to the top of the table and the champions could stay there with a win, ensuring they finish yet another weekend at the summit.
Watford, meanwhile, are edging closer to the drop after a run of only one win in their last League games. Frankly, Roy Hodgson has just not had the desired effect.
Here’s everything you need to know about the game.
