Team news

City

Pep Guardiola will assess Sergio Aguero's fitness, after the Argentine missed Saturday's triumph over Bournemouth, and he will also wait to see how Oleksandr Zinchenko is after gashing his nose against the Cherries.

READ: Guardiola explains Aguero absence

Kevin De Bruyne is again ruled out with ligament damage sustained in the Carabao Cup win over Fulham.

Benjamin Mendy is out for up to 12 weeks, while goalkeeper Claudio Bravo is a long-term absentee, having sustained an Achilles tendon injury. The Chilean 'keeper underwent scans, which confirmed a rupture in the tendon of his left foot.

Watford

Adalberto Penaranda (foot) is unlikely to feature, while Daryl Janmaat is also a doubt. 

Tom Cleverley (achilles) is close to a return, but Tuesday's game could prove too soon.

The last time...

The two sides last met on in January, with the Blues winning 3-1.

Raheem Sterling and Aguero were on target, while the home side also benefited from a Christian Kabasele own-goal. Andre Gray bagged a consolation for the visitors.

City's last visit to Vicarage Road proved a memorable one as the Blues sailed to a 6-0 win, inspired by an Aguero hat-trick.

OG: City's second comes as Watford defender Christian Kabasele puts through his own net.
