De Bruyne happy with fight for places at Man City

De Bruyne happy with fight for places at Man City

Manchester City are unbeaten against Watford in the Premier League, winning four of their six matches (D2).

Nevertheless it was an established City player in England centre-back John Stones who scored twice for Pep Guardiola's expensively-assembled side as they won 4-0 away to Dutch champions Feyenoord in an impressive start to their Champions League campaign on Wednesday.

"It was so good", Guardiola told reporters afterwards.

There was the memorable FA Cup game in January 2014 when Fernando Forestieri and Troy Deeney put Watford 2-0 up at the break and it was not until the 78th minute that Sergio Aguero pulled City level, and the 86th minute that Aleksandar Kolarov's put them ahead.

Aguero opened the scoring in the 27th minute, heading home Kevin de Bruyne's superb free-kick and doubled the lead within four minutes when he converted David Silva's teasing cross from close range. TV replays suggested they were right about both; the first was a borderline decision, but Jesus was a yard offside.

But victory tomorrow would do far more than end a 28-year wait for a win against City.

Those figures became eight in five as the Argentine was on hand to provide a simple finish 31 minutes in after Heurelho Gomes had palmed Gabriel Jesus' shot into his path.

It was an ominous result for Watford yet Marco Silva's men are unlikely to feel over-awed knowing that a home win on Saturday would take them to 11 points.

We can see a lot of goals in this game and are backing on more than 2.5 goals as our prediction.

"Hopefully the club can do that one day soon in the stadium at the game. I think in the next days he will be able to play again", added Guardiola.

"Watford are just two points behind us, they made an unbelievable start".

Mauricio Pochettino's Spurs have failed to win all three league games at Wembley, where it's playing while White Hart Lane is redeveloped this season.

Nicolas Otamendi headed home a fourth before Aguero secured the match ball and Raheem Sterling rounded things off with a penalty. Watford have been short of wins of late and have a woeful head-to-head record with City which is likely to factor in the outcome this afternoon. His men will have to be at the top of their game throughout the match in order to get all three points.
