Manchester City

Last updated: Sat 21 September 2019 08:53
In Brief

Impressive start to Champions League campaign on Wednesday. Already 5 points behind Liverpool. Sane, Stones and Laporte sidelined. Foden doubtful.

Looking Back

City became the only English side to enjoy winning start to their Champions League campaign, with Sky Blues easy 3:0 winners on visit to Shakhtar. Dominated game from start to finish.

Last weekend’s defeat at Norwich and home draw vs. Tottenham already see City playing catch up domestically and they can’t possibly afford any further slip ups, especially at home.

Looking Ahead

Coach Guardiola has no choice but to use Fernandinho and Otamendi as centre-backs, the 2 regulars in defence Stones and Laporte are out injured. Sane the other long-term absentee, while Foden is doubtful after not making the trip to Ukraine.

The 2 Silvas and Aguero left on the bench in midweek, which suggests that now they should be amongst the starters. Mendy also pushing for inclusion from the off.

Points of Interest

Conceded 8 of last 9 Premier League goals from set pieces (4 from corners)!

Watford

Last updated: Sat 21 September 2019 08:54
In Brief

Heroic effort vs. Arsenal earned them deserved draw. Captain Deeney, Success and Cathcart remain sidelined.

Looking Back

Watford remain winless, but first display under new coach showed promising things. Great desire from everyone involved saw Hornets coming from 0:2 down to save draw vs. Arsenal. Most impressive stat the 30 shot attempts by the Hornets!

Players still hurting after shameful loss in FA Cup final vs. Man City last May.

Looking Ahead

Coach Flores seems brave enough to try using aggressive tactics in this game too and it won’t be a surprise if attacking display offered by Watford.

After turning the game last weekend off the bench Pereyra now should start, with no fresh injury concerns and only Deeney, Success and Cathcart sidelined.

Points of Interest

Deulofeu the most aggressive player. So far he has 2.4 key passes per game and 2.6 successful dribbles. Both leading numbers for a player outside any of ‘Big Six’ teams.
