A meeting of the 30th round of the Premier League between Manchester City and Watford will begin at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester. Unofficial favorites of the match bookmakers consider the future home team, which is more than logical, given the current form of the team. However, I note that Watford, despite the recent major defeat from Liverpool, is in quite a good shape, goes to Manchester to give battle to the champion.
In the last five matches, Manchester City exclusively won. During this period, MC knocked out Newport County from the England Cup, took the League Cup, beating Chelsea, turned out to be stronger than Schalke in the first match of the 1/8 Champions League final. In the EPL City with the same score 1: 0 beat West Ham and Bournemouth. Before the 30th round Manchester City is located on the first line, has a handicap of two points in front of the nearest pursuer, Liverpool. However, mercyside's team still has one game in the reserve. At home, the MC in the current season has 14 victories with one loss in 15 meetings of the Premier League.
If it were not for the crushing defeat with a score of 0: 5 from Liverpool, February for Watford could be called the perfect month. During this period, Watford beat Cardiff City and Everton in the Premier League, tied 0-0 with Brighton. In the championship standings, Watford is in 8th position with 40 points, losing three points to Wolverhampton and still having a game left. Away "gold" played 15 fights, in which there are five wins with five draws and five defeats, 22:22 goal difference. I note both the high performance of Watford and high throughput.
Manchester City plays great in own walls, the Guardiola's team had a whole week to prepare for the upcoming game. In turn, Watford in guest meetings is quite active, there is the reason to believe that the Saturday match will be fun.
