In the second half, City faced an early blast of pressure from Watford, but they added to their lead with a Nicolas Otamendi header from a David Silva cross. Defender Miguel Britos is suspended for the game. Although he has been used deeper this year, he is able to be just as creative, while allowing City to field Aguero, Jesus, Sterling and others ahead of him to pull apart teams with his clever passing.

Centre-backs Younes Kaboul, Sebastian Prodl and Craig Cathcart are all out with knocks, while Miguel Britos continues to serve his suspension, leaving the Hornets somewhat bare at the back.

It would also put Watford top of the Premier League table for 22 hours at least, with Chelsea and Manchester United playing on Sunday afternoon.

Three consecutive clean sheets, no doubt aided by the big money signings of Ederson, Kyle Walker and Benjamin Mendy, ensure that City will feature heavily come the conclusion of the season.

Sergio Aguero has six goals and one assist in four previous appearances against the Hornets in all competitions.

For City, Raheem Sterling will make his return from the suspension he picked up against Bournemouth, while captain Vincent Kompany will face a late fitness test to see whether the Belgian can battle against his minor calf strain, having missed out on the thumping of Liverpool. He has only lost two out of eleven games while in charge of Hull City and Watford.

Spanish manager Guardiola was delighted by his side's positive approach, saying: "We did not play back".

Gomes has been one of the best shot stoppers in the Premier League ever since Watford returned to the top flight in 2015. This includes an exciting 3-3 tie against Liverpool to open the season.

The talented Brazilian, who joined the club in January leading many to doubt whether the two could both play in Pep Guardiola's fluid system.

On the final day of the last Premier League season, Manchester City beat Watford 5-0.

Silva, who has hit the ground running with eight points from a possible 12 since joining Watford, will hope his side can replicate their recent defensive solidity.

Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero seemed to have clicked pretty nicely.

Watford have played the 4-3-3 formation in three of their games before going to a 4-2-3-1 when visiting the Saints, and picking up their second win.
