Premier League

Manchester City Possible XI To Face Watford

Manchester City was recently knocked out of the FA Cup on Saturday night when Arsenal beat them 2-0 to progress to the finals. Two goals from star striker, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, was enough to give Arsenal a deserved victory over Pep's Manchester City.

Manchester City will try to come back to winning ways as they travel to Watford for their next Premier League match on Tuesday.

Guardiola's hopes of winning another trophy this season will be cast on the Champions League which is set to resume in August, as Manchester City has already bagged the English Football League Cup, Capital One Cup.

Manchester City have secured Champions League football ball for next season because they are second on the league table with 75 points from 36 matches. They top Chelsea who occupy the third position with 12 points.

Watford sit 17th on the league table with 34 points from 36 games. They're three points above the relegation zone. This spells danger for them because they could still be relegated.

They need to try as much as possible to get a point against Manchester City. Getting a point against Manchester City will be a hard feat to achieve because of the level of quality Manchester City possess. However, this is the purely game of football. Anything can happen.

Here is Manchester City FC possible starting line-up against Watford on Tuesday evening:

Formation: 4-3-3

Ederson (Goalkeeper)

Mendy

Aymeric Laporte

Nicholas Otamendi

Kyle Walker

Ilkay Gundogan

Kevin De Bruyne

Rodri

Raheem Sterling

Phil Foden

Gabriel Jesus

Elderson had a game to forget in the FA Cup match against Arsenal as he conceded two goals from Arsenal's striker, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang. He had hoped to complete a domestic double with Manchester City. However, things didn't happen as expected. He will definitely get past it before Tuesday.

Mendy, Aymeric Laporte, Nicholas Otamendi and Kyle Walker will play as defensive quartet. They will surely find a means to manage Watford's attacking force. They'll likely help Ederson to keep another league clean sheet.

Ilkay Gundogan, Rodri and Kevin De Bruyne will be incharge of midfield duties. Rodri will play as defensive midfielder, while Gundogan and De Bruyne will play as attacking and central midfielder respectively. I believe they will dominate ball possession in the middle.

Sterling and Phil Foden will play on the wings. They will support Gabriel Jesus in attack. Foden and Sterling have been in a good form since football resumed. Gabriel Jesus will likely add to his goal tally in the game against Watford. Foden and Sterling could also score.
