City may be heading into Saturday's FA Cup Final as favourites, but Pep Guardiola is not expecting an easy ride at Wembley against Watford.

Previewing the clash in his press conference at the City Football Academy, the Catalan boss was asked whether the expectation of victory increases the level of difficulty for his side.

Guardiola admitted the pressure is on the Premier League Champions but asserted Watford have the quality to triumph, pinpointing the areas in which he feels the Hornets can sting.

"They have quality in front with Roberto Pereyra, Troy Deeney and Gerard Deulofeu; with Abdoulaye Doucoure and Etienne Capoue - especially Doucoure - and the way they turn up late into the 18-yard-box," he stated.

"They handle the defensive side well and with the set-pieces they have, they have Jose Holebas, who is an incredible set-piece taker."
