Red hot Manchester City host newly promoted Watford. The citizens are unbeaten and yet to concede a goal. Watford arrives into the game with 3 draws as they face their toughest task.
Manuel Pellegrini’s men are off to a perfect start with 8 goals scored and none conceded in the league. The Chilean is expected to start with the same XI that managed a victory at Goodison Park. Manchester City carry a lot of depth in their squad as Samir Nasri pushes for a start. Fabian Delph is also a productive option in the midfield. Wilfried Bony and Pablo Zabaleta are likely to miss the game.
Defender Miguel Britos serves his 3 match suspension after being sent off in the Capital one cup clash against Preston. Etienne Capoue and Valon Behrami will hold the key in midfield as they look to counter an attacking Manchester City side. Troy Deenay will lead the attack. Joel Ekstrand remains sidelined.
