Manchester City’s grip on the Premier League strengthened thanks to Liverpool’s Merseyside derby draw and the visit of Watford to the Etihad Stadium should only enhance Pep Guardiola’s title ambitions.  


The pendulum has swung back to Manchester in what is proving to be one of the most exciting title races we have seen for years.

As serial winner Pep Guardiola prepares his charges for the visit of Watford, one thing he will no doubt highlight to his side is their remarkable record against the Hornets.

The Citizens are on a 14-game unbeaten run against Watford in all competitions, a run that stretches back to 1989.

To rub it in a little further (sorry Watford fans), City have won 12 of those games, including the last nine in a row in all competitions.

You will be hardly surprised to learn then that City are heavy favourites to win the tie with relevant sportsbooks but that does not mean there is not value to be had.

Watford are also no fools and have netted 22 times on the road this season, which will make for an entertaining affair.

With just one loss at home all season the home win is inevitable, but Watford will trouble City in a nervy 3-1 home win.

No win against City in any competition since 1989 and no win at City since 1987 tells quite a remarkable story.

Overall, City have recorded 16 wins over Watford with the Hornets claiming six wins and a total of just five draws in all competitions since the pair first met in September 1982.


  • Manchester City have never lost to Watford in a Premier League fixture (7 wins and 2 draws).
  • Watford have the seventh best away record in the league with 5 wins, 5 draws and 5 defeats.
  • Manchester City are currently on an eight-game winning run in all competitions.
  • Watford have scored the joint highest number of own goals this season (3, with Southampton and Wolves).
  • City striker Sergio Agüero is the Premier League’s current top scorer with 18 whilst Watford’s top scorer is Troy Deeney with 8.
