Team News

Watford defender Adam Masina was passed fit for the Chelsea game but had to come off after just 12 minutes, so Danny Rose is set to deputise this time around.

Ismaila Sarr, Kwadwo Baah, Ben Foster, Nicolas N'Koulou and Peter Etebo will be sidelined for the rest of the calendar year, but Ken Sema and Francisco Sierralta ought to return soon.

It would not be surprising to see Juraj Kucka come into contention for a start in a fatigued midfield, but Ranieri will be reluctant to shuffle the pack too much given his side's valiant showing in midweek.
Watford possible starting lineup:
Bachmann; Ngakia, Troost-Ekong, Cathcart, Rose; Kucka; Dennis, Sissoko, Cleverley, Pedro; King

Manchester City
As for City, Phil Foden and Jack Grealish were both fit enough to make the bench in midweek, but Ilkay Gundogan, John Stones and Kyle Walker were all forced to miss out.

The trio will all be fine for the trip south, though, while Ferran Torres remains out and Kevin De Bruyne has now recovered from COVID-19 infection.

Aymeric Laporte's return from suspension is a welcome boost, though, and both Grealish and Foden could be deemed fit enough to start, although it would be a surprise to see both men complete the full 90.
Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ederson; Cancelo, Dias, Laporte, Zinchenko; Silva, Rodri, Foden; Jesus, Sterling, Grealish

Prediction: Watford 1-3 Manchester City
