Manchester City head to Hertfordshire today for their final game of the 2016-17 Premier League season against Watford. Champions League qualification is pretty much secured barring a miracle goal difference turnaround, but the question is will it be as automatic group stage entrants via 3rd place or a play-off game via 4th place. Today’s game will determine that.
City won the reverse fixture 2-0 in December, with goals from David Silva and outgoing club legend Pablo Zabaleta. Watford will bid farewell to Walter Mazzarri today after the Italian tactician was given his marching orders this week.
Jonathan Moss is today’s referee and here are the starting line-ups selected by the two bosses:
Watford XI: Gomes, Janmaat, Behrami, Holebas, Amrabat, Cleverley, Doucouré, Capoue, Mason, Niang, Okaka
Manchester City XI: Caballero, Fernandinho, Kompany, Otamendi, Clichy, Touré, Silva, De Bruyne, Sané, Gabriel Jesus, Agüero
Today’s match can be viewed on Sky Sports 2 in the UK. A full list of TV coverage from around the world can be found here.
