Manchester City, Watford gear up for face-off

IANS  |  London 

Manchester City are preparing for their English Premier League (EPL) match against Watford on Saturday.

Watford will be coming into this game after their recent loss against Tottenham on Monday, reports Xinhua.

Placed third on the EPL points table, Manchester City, will be coming into the match with a bit more confidence after their recent goalless tie with league leaders Leicester.

Ahead of their game against Watford, Manchester manager Manuel Pellegrini spoke about the team's condition.

"Yes of course we are in a good position. Always the best position is to be at the top of the table, but I think this season is a special Premier League. Maybe with the amount of points we have in this moment it's not good to try to fight for the title in a normal season when you finish normally 56, 55, 53 points in front. But now just three points behind the leaders I think it's an expected position. I hope we are going to complete a very good second part to the season," he said.

Currently siitng at the ninth spot, Watford have eight wins, five draws and six losses. Manchester City have 11 wins, three draws and five losses.
