It’s back to the domestic front this afternoon for Manchester City after their thumping of Feyenoord on Wednesday in the Champions League.
Today, Pep Guardiola’s men face a side they thrashed 5-0 in last season’s equivalent fixture, but who are now coached by the talented Marco Silva, a tactician who has the Hornets unbeaten four games into the season.
It promises to be a tougher away day for City than last time they visited Vicarage Road in May, but after big wins over Liverpool and Feyenoord, confidence is sky high in the camp.
Anthony Taylor is today’s referee and here are the starting lineups chosen by Guardiola and Silva:
Watford XI: Gomes (c), Janmaat, Mariappa, Kabasele, Holebas, Chalobah, Doucouré, Carrillo, Cleverley, Richarlison, Gray
Manchester City XI: Ederson, Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Mendy, Fernandinho, De Bruyne, David Silva (c), Sterling, Aguero, Jesus
