Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 37
Kick-off:
Venue: Vicarage Road (Watford)
It has been a tumultuous campaign for Watford, with the club struggling to find some balance both on and off-the-pitch. Flirtatious with relegation right from the start of the term, the Hornets were always huge favorites to make the drop.

Taken aback by their string of poor displays, club owner Gino Pozzo has already axed three managers this season. The Italian business tycoon has been on the edge, and simply cannot watch his side go down without putting up a strong fight.

Following series of horrific results since Project Restart, erstwhile manager Nigel Pearson was unceremoniously booted out of the club on Monday morning. Placing Hayden Mullins in charge for the time-being, the new interim coach has been vested with the task of ensuring top-flight survival for the Hornets.

With a tough game against Manchester City on the horizon, Watford will be looking to put up a worthwhile performance against Pep Guardiola’s charges to give Mullins coaching stint at the club a head start.

Nigel Pearson will feel hard done by the club’s decision to give him his marching orders despite his fruitful efforts to get Watford out of the drop-zone. However, this is the reality of football management and the 56-year-old can be proud of his feats during his time at Hertfordshire.

Still under the tutelage of Pearson, Watford made their way to the London Stadium to take on in-form West Ham United, seeking to bring all three points home. Strolling out of the tunnel, the Hornets must have been scared shitless at the prospect of taking on the likes of Antonio and Soucek.

As you would expect, the visitors were unable to survive the Hammers’ early onslaught, conceding three first-half goals to put the latter comfortably in the driving seat. Despite a resurgence after the break, Watford could only muster a consolation goal as they were condemned to a heavy 3-1 defeat.

Meanwhile, Manchester City were seeking FA Cup glory when they rendezvoused at the Etihad Stadium few days ago, to take on archrivals Arsenal. Both sides desperate for the win, we were treated to an exciting game in Greater Manchester.

Looking more driven than the opposition, Arsenal grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck, scoring two unanswered goals to post an easy win on the board. Aubameyang was the cream of the crop for the Gunners, grabbing a brace to put City to the sword.

For this fixture, Manchester City are overwhelming favorites for the win. They are coming into this fixture on the back of a disappointing loss to Arsenal – one which ultimately ended their cup title defense charge. 

The Citizens need to end the season on a strong note to send a statement to Real Madrid ahead of their second-leg CL clash. Even though their second-spot on the log is secured, City will be in dire need of a win here to restore some form of confidence to the squad. 

Injured or Suspended Players
