Man City returned to the top of the Premier League table on Wednesday evening courtesy of a 3-0 success over Brighton, with Riyad Mahrez, Phil Foden and Bernardo Silva on the scoresheet in the second period.
The Citizens are again one point clear of second-placed Liverpool and will have the chance to move four points clear on Saturday, as Liverpool are not in action until Sunday, when they face Everton in the Merseyside derby.
Pep Guardiola‘s side lost to Liverpool in the semi-finals of the FA Cup last weekend, so they are now fighting on just two fronts, aiming for success in the Premier League and Champions League, and Real Madrid will visit the Etihad Stadium for the first leg of their European Cup semi-final next week.
Man City will then take on Leeds United at the end of April before travelling to Real Madrid for the second leg of their Champions League semi-final, and it will be fascinating to see how the campaign finishes, as the club could win two trophies, one or potentially zero, with Liverpool aiming for a quadruple.
The Citizens have been strong in front of their own supporters in the league this season, picking up 38 points from 16 matches, but Watford have actually been much better away from home than at Vicarage Road, with 15 of their 22 points coming on their travels this term.
Man City are again likely to be without Kyle Walker due to an ankle problem, while John Stones and Nathan Ake both picked up issues during the clash with Brighton on Wednesday.
Neither problem is believed to be serious, but Guardiola will not want to take any risks with the pair at such a key stage of the season, so there could be a return to the XI for Ruben Dias, who featured off the bench against Brighton, having now recovered from injury.
Guardiola will have one eye on the clash with Real Madrid, so it would not be a surprise to see a number of changes to the team for this match, with Fernandinho, Raheem Sterling, Jack Grealish, Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko potentially coming into the side.
As for Watford, Cucho Hernandez, Samuel Kalu and Francisco Sierralta are still unavailable for selection, but William Troost-Ekong has now returned to full training.
There are unlikely to be any surprises in the away side’s XI on Saturday afternoon, with Emmanuel Dennis, Joao Pedro and Ismaila Sarr set to feature in the final third of the field.

Tom Cleverley and Joshua King are among the players pushing for spots in the side, but it could ultimately be same team that took to the field for the first whistle against Brentford last time out.
