mancity1718Manchester City appear to have hit something like top gear and Saturday’s English Premier League assignment comprises of a visit to Watford who are also in good shape right now.

 

 

Watford Stats:

Watford are unbeaten after 2 wins and 2 draws. They were 2-0 winners away at Southampton last weekend and 8 points is good enough for fourth spot in the standings.

Since drawing 3-3 at home to Liverpool on the opening weekend Watford have kept 3 successive clean sheets

Aside from the draw with Liverpool Watford’s only other home game also finished all square, 0-0 with Brighton and Watford played the bulk of the game with 10 men

Watford have been awarded exactly 3 corners in both of their home games so far

Man City Stats:

City thrashed Liverpool 5-0 in a home fixture last weekend and they joined Manchester United at the top of the log with 10 points from 4 outings.

City have won both of their road trips in the league, 2-0 at Brighton and a late winner saw them come out on top against Bournemouth 2-1

City were awarded 10 corners in the win at Brighton but just 5 at Bournemouth

In midweek City won 4-0 at Feyenoord in their opening Champions League fixture, a game they put to bed early with 3 goals in the first 25 minutes.

The Betting

Match Result:

Watford 15/2

Draw 9/2

Man City 7/20

Note, odds quoted are an approximate average and are correct at the time of last update but are subject to change

Verdict:

City are finding their range in front of goal but Watford are in good form themselves and although I don’t envisage a surprise, this might not be as easy as the match result betting suggests. Watford scored a couple of super goals last week, they are also a threat from set pieces (as Liverpool found out) and hence a chance is taken on both teams to find the net.

Bet: Both teams to score? (yes) at 15/20
