Watford vs Man City LIVE: Premier League latest score, goals and updates today


(Getty Images)

Watford are hosting Manchester City this afternoon in the Premier League. Watford beat Manchester United in November but they’ve been unable to continue that good form, with losses to Leicester and Chelsea. But the United match does show they pose a threat which Pep Guardiola is aware of, particularly now they are under the reign of Claudio Ranieri. Guardiola said: “I admire a lot that passion and energy. It will be a pleasure to see him again. I know results against him are not always good. I know exactly what they want to do but what they do they do it really well. We have to be careful and make another good performance.”

And the praise has gone both ways in the build up to the match with Ranieri heaping positivity on Guardiola. The Watford boss said: “Guardiola is working very well, he has built a fantastic quality team and they can make the difference in every situation and for this reason, we must be focused on the match 100 per cent.” A win for Watford will put some distance between them and the relegation zone which is currently just a table spot and three points below them.

Follow all the latest updates below, after the conclusion of Wolves vs Liverpool.

Watford 0-2 Man City

50 mins: An early corner conceded as Sterling looked to strike. It was taken short and City eventually got the ball to an offside Dias.

Watford then won a corner back as Dennis took a shot. Dennis then got a head to the corner ball but it sailed over the bar. Nothing to suggest Watford can fight their way back into this one as of yet.

It was corners galore as City won another but Bachmann collected.

Louza and Cleverly are off and Kucka and Hernandez are on for Watford

Will Watford be able to get back into this one or will City run away with this to end up on top?

All to come in the next 45 but look at this stat about Silva, outstanding!

Half-time: Watford 0-2 Man City

Watford have had some spells of possession but it has been all City in the first half.

An early goal from Sterling crushed the hosts who were scrambling for the following ten minutes. Ranieri’s side built themselves back into it but Silva’s goal at 30 minutes drained the hope from Watford.

Even in the added time of the first 45 Watford conceded a corner with Bachmann their only saviour.

The question on everyone’s lips now is how ruthless will City be in this second half?

45 mins: City won a corner as defenders expelled the ball from a Gundogan attack. Bachmann collected and cleared his lines.

More City pressure and possession closed out normal time and it feels that is how the remainder of the match is going to play out. Two minutes added time at Vicarage Road.

Watford 0-2 Man City

35 mins: Watford look depleted after that Silva goal and it’s letting City have the potential to build their score. The hosts were lucky Foden fluffed his attempt.

Ranieri looks disappointed on the side lines, not least as his sparkling record against city is about to be obliterated. He as a manager is unbeaten in his last nine encounters against Guardiola’s side.

GOAL! Watford 0-2 Man City (SILVA 30)

It was coming really wasn’t it but you have to feel for Bachmann. Gundogan struck first with the keeper making a good save but the ball came back out and Bernardo Silva hit home.

Frustrating for Watford who had started to build into this match. Also worth noting Rose was booked for a challenge on Grealish just before the goal.

Watford 0-1 Man City

29 mins: Watford won their first corner of the match but it was punched away by Ederson. City launches a counter from it but Dennis did well to intercept the ball.

Cancelo poked a shot but it went hugely wide.

Watford almost had a defensive blunder and the ball was headed back to the keeper with Grealish charging it down. Bachmann, who has been brilliant so far, saw Grealish off.

A challenge by Laporte gave away a free kick to the hosts. Dennis struck the set-piece but Ederson collected.

Watford 0-1 Man City

24 mins: Grealish has another two shots, he’s hungry for a goal today isn’t he! Another great save from Bachmann keeps his side in the match with the other shot sailing over the bar.

Four shots for the English star so far which is the most he’s had in a single match for City since signing in the summer.
