Manchester City vs. Watford Match Preview:
After walloping brought by Chelsea and Leicester, Manchester City will surely make a big effort to satisfaction in the upcoming game of round 16, hosting to Watford at beloved "Etihad Stadium". Indeed, The Hornets are pretty suitable for The Citizens by football style, as Walter Mazzarri's men endeavour to play a creative game play and they are thereby supposed to leave many space uncovered over whether the midfield or defence. Exactly that is what Manchester City need though.
Match status: ENGLAND: Premier League - Round 16

Manchester City: Team News
The Sky Blues failed the last two rounds, initially having suffered a defeat by Chelsea, and afterwards by Leicester City followed by the overall goal indicator as 3:7. As a consequence of that, the team of Pep Guardiola has dropped on the 4th position, however not long before it they had been claiming the peak of the standings since the first opener of the current season. Home performance as well cannot be regarded pleasant, because one win out of five home fixtures - not even a positive run for a Premier league top team.
Man City will have a good chance to come around by defeating a quite low-ranked opponent in the face of Watford, in front of their favourite spectators. The most productive player of The Citizens is Sergio Aguero, with ten goals recorded from 11 appearances, who is sidelined for this game due to suspension.

Manchester City vs. Watford: Match Preview
In our perspective, the hosts are bound to take advantage of the opposition issues and at last win. Those issues are related to lack of physical comfort of playing on the road for The Hornets because, in fact, Watford face serious difficulties playing at away compared to home fixtures. It is much unlikely that Manchester players will be conserving their strength and will try to score as much as needed to bring back confidence.
