Watford enter their penultimate game of the Premier League against Manchester City after a chaotic couple of days.

The sacking of Nigel Pearson is still surrounded in mystery, with the Hornets still well-placed to beat the drop.

But defeat to Pep Guardiola’s side will open the door for Aston Villa and Bournemouth – depending on the severity of the loss.

Goal difference could be the friend of Hayden Mullins as he steps in on a short-term basis to try finish the job Pearson started.

Team news

Gerard Deulofeu (knee), Isaac Success (Achilles) and Daryl Janmaat (knee) are all out. Deeney has had knee problems for a while, but he will likely play through the pain here.

Oleksandr Zinchenko, Joao Cancelo, John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi could all be set for run-outs if Guardiola rotates his squad, with Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy and Aymeric Laporte due a rest. While Gabriel Jesus could be handed a breather too, having started six games in a row in all competitions.

Predicted line-ups

Watford XI: Foster; Mariappa, Kabasele, Dawson, Femenia; Hughes, Chalobah; Sarr, Doucoure, Welbeck; Deeney

Man City XI: Ederson; Walker, Stones, Laporte, Zinchenko; De Bruyne, Rodri, Silva; Sterling, Bernardo, Foden

Prediction

The Hornets are in disarray and City will be fuelled by the hurt of losing the FA Cup semi-final last weekend, it has to be an away win here and more uncertainty at Vicarage Road heading into the final round of fixtures this weekend. 1-3.
