Watford vs Manchester City Match Analysis and Prediction

Relegation battles might ease for the Hornets, but they face an uphill battle against a far superior side. Vicarage Road sets to come alive as Watford play host to high flying side Manchester City. The match schedules for Tuesday with kickoff at 20:00 GMT.

A 3-1 loss to side West Ham was the final nail in the coffin for coach Nigel Pearson as his stint at the Vicarage came to an end. Nigel Pearson lost his job with only two matches remaining the league. The side is currently three points above the relegation zone.

Ex-manager Pearson will mark the third manager sacked by the Hornets following the exit of Javi Garcia and Quique Sanchez Flores. Under 23 head coach, Hayden Mullins will take charge of the remaining matches in the league.

Manchester City will have to move forward following a shocking 2-0 defeat to Arsenal in the FA Cup semi-finals. Two goals by Aubemeyang was enough to exit the side from the FA Cup after a lacklustre performance.

The Citizens are currently second on the Premier League and will be looking to kickstart their Champions League action against side Real Madrid. Pep Guardiola will be looking to overcome his defeat to former assistant coach Arteta.
