After being humbled by his protege in Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final defeat, Pep Guardiola will demand response on Tuesday. Second-placed Manchester City travel to Hertfordshire to face relegation-threatened Watford, who are now also managerless too.

Can they secure their Premier League status for another year with a win here? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Watford vs Manchester City Betting Tips

Watford were simply blown away in a remarkable first-half display by West Ham on Friday evening. Goals from Michail Antonio, Tomas Soucek and a Declan Rice screamer saw David Moyes’ side race into a three-goal cushion before half-time.

It’s no wonder they took their foot off the pedal, allowing the Hornets an opportunity to get back into proceedings after the interval. Their 3-1 win means they’re now safe from relegation, though Watford remain in danger and have tough fixtures to finish too.

There was reportedly unrest behind-the-scenes, which led to Nigel Pearson’s dismissal over the weekend. City and an away trip against Arsenal – who delivered a memorable cup display to sink the Citizens on Saturday – remain.

Normally, it’d be difficult to see Watford earning anything from those two games but stranger things have happened. Especially when the threat of relegation to the Championship continues creeping up behind you.

Aston Villa (31 pts, 36 games played) and Bournemouth (31 pts, 37 games) occupy the division’s final two drop zone positions. Norwich’s relegation back to England’s second-tier was already mathematically confirmed earlier this month, so there’s plenty at stake.

Encouraging displays from Craig Dawson, the midfield partnership of Abdoulaye Doucoure and Will Hughes – as well as captain Troy Deeney leading the line, were all positives to take from a frustrating outing in east London. Whether the whole team can raise their game when a wounded City side come to town, remains to be seen.

Watford vs Manchester City Correct Score Predictions

Watford need points, City have been unpredictable throughout the campaign… but I’m still backing the visitors here. In hindsight, that’s probably not a safe option either.
