Watford found Marco Silva the ideal coach to give the team what their administration is looking for. …
Quality of play associated with results that do not pass it by. This early season, the team has been at very high levels in both evaluations.
Still, he did not win at home. They drew two draws, first against Liverpool, then against Brighton, then with very different values. Away from home, two wins, on visits to Bournemouth and Southampton.
This Saturday, you will have the most demanding test before your audience.
Manchester City’s ball circulation will test the defensive safety of Watford’s men, who, having conceded three goals in the first game, got clean sheets in the next three games.
Meanwhile, City are in a series of thrashes that put levels of confidence very high, in a team where the connection between the coach’s ideas and the players is essential to achieve better than last year.
The goals scored against Liverpool and Feyenoord, however, raise the income of the Citizens’ team to a somewhat exaggerated value for the reality of the team,
because in the first meeting they benefited from the numerical advantage to do so, and in the second, the competitive level of the opponent is below that found in the Premier League.
The drawn-out draw against Everton and the pitfalls of overtaking Bournemouth will be examples to take into account for what the Citizens can do at Watford if Marco Silva’s team manages to remain reliable defensively.
The absence of Britos, suspended, could be an added difficulty.
Prognosis Watford vs Manchester City:
Against this backdrop, the ability of both teams to score is high.
Manchester City “pushing” Watford to their area, Marco Silva’s team managing to uncover, in the transition, space to surprise the last stronghold of Pep Guardiola’s set.
