Watford FC vs Manchester City
League: English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 21st May 2017
Time: Kick off at 15:00
Venue: Vicarage Road

Team News:

Watford
  • Following the red card to Sebastian Prödl at Stamford Bridge in midweek, Walter Mazzarri has a massive problem at the back, praying on the fitness of Britos or Kabasele, with Younes Kaboul and Craig Cathcart still sidelined.
  • The pair are major doubts though, so Watford may have to play someone out of position alongside Adrian Mariappa, with Etienne Capoue a candidate having played at centre-back a considerable amount in France and more recently on occasion at Spurs.
  • Stefano Okaka may get the nod over Troy Deeney to lead the line having scored from the bench on Monday.
Manchester City
  • With no fresh injury concerns, Guardiola’s one key decision may revolve around sentimentality, with Pablo Zabaleta leaving the club at the end of the season.
  • The visitors still need a result to ensure a top 4 finish, but Guardiola should have faith in the Argentine to do a job on Sunday and recall him to the starting XI.
  • It’s a move that would likely see Yaya Toure sacrificed – though this could also be his last game in a City shirt – while Vincent Kompany may not be risked after picking up a knock in midweek.
