Naturally, all this is definitely not encouraging for the home team. Manager Gracia will have a very difficult task to find the right tactic to face excellent Citizens from Manchester, but current Watford’s shape is very worrying given that it won just one point in last four league matches. It drew away with Southampton 1-1 and lost remaining three matches without even scoring a single goal.
Last weekend Watford lost away to Leicester 2-0, while experienced midfielder Capoue has caused another problem as he was sent off near the finish of match. It means that his position against the Citizens should cover young Chalobah, while instead of not so convincing Success chance in the top of attack should again get robust Deeney. Let’s add that due to injuries still out of action are defender Janmaati and midfielder Cleverly.
Probable lineups Watford: Foster – Femenia, Kabasele, Cathcart, Holebas – Hughes, Chalobah, Doucoure, Pereyra – Deulofeu, Deeney
