Manchester City v Watford
Manchester City will be eager to prove a point when they host Watford in the Premier League on Saturday.
The Citizens lost their first game of the season last week against Norwich City, despite being the heavy favourites at Carrow Road. That defeat allowed Liverpool to move five points clear at the top of the Premier League table and the champions will need to get back to winning ways in order to put pressure on their rivals.
Pep Guardiola's men responded in Europe on Wednesday by beating Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League, and they even managed to keep a clean sheet in Ukraine.
City secured all three points thanks to goals from Riyad Mahrez, Ilkay Gundogan and Gabriel Jesus.
Watford have endured a tough start to the new campaign and they remain bottom of the Premier League, despite their impressive comeback against Arsenal.
In his first game back in the role, Quique Sanchez Flores saw his side fight back from 2-0 down to earn a point but Saturday's tie promises to be a different beast.
Forward Troy Deeney is a doubt as he continues to recover from a knee issue, an injury that has seen him miss the last four games.
Craig Cathcart sat out the fixture against the Gunners with a muscle problem and he will need to pass a late fitness test to play.
City defender John Stones missed Wednesday's game due to a training setback on Tuesday and looks set to miss up to five weeks of action.
Aymeric Laporte is out until February, meaning Fernandinho will partner Nicolas Otamendi at centre-back. Benjamin Mendy is set to start the game on the bench but Phil Foden is a doubt due to illness.
City have won the last 11 matches between the pair and a scoring game could be on the cards. The Citizens have scored 38 goals in that time, with Watford's last win in this fixture coming in 1989.
