Watford 0-3 Watford Highlights
[ English Premier League 2017-18 Match ]
27′ 0 – 1 Sergio Aguero scores the opening goal inside first 27 minutes which started the rout at Vicarage Road.
31′ 0 – 2 Sergio Aguero made it 2-0 minutes later as City took control of the game.
37′ 0 – 3 Gabriel Jesus continue his incredible run of goal scoring form with another goal as City pretty much settled the game before the halftime.
10 points after 4 games, level on points with leaders United and putting 9 goals in week against Liverpool and Feyenoord this City side looks in great shape. Watford themselves are a very difficult team to beat and under Marco Silva they base their game on a solid defense. Unbeaten so far however they failed to win both of their opening home games. City on the other hand are absolute gem going forward but Watford can exploit their defense with physical play but for that they need to keep City quite in front of the goal.
Team News & Lineups: As far as the team news is concerned, Guardiola’s will field a strong lineup with Aguero starting upfront while Gabriel Jesus and Sterling playing on either flank. De Bruyne, Yaya Toure and Silva to start in midfield while Otamendi and Kompany set to play in central defence. This is how I expect both teams to lineup on the final day of the season.
Match Predictions: City should cruise through this game considering there is no pressure on Watford and even on City who can qualify for the champions league even with a lousy draw. However with the fire power, City possess I expect them to win this game comfortably with Jesus and Aguero both on the scoresheet.
