One change for City against Watford

ATTACKING BLUES: City looking to end campaign on a high

ATTACKING BLUES: City looking to end campaign on a high

Gael Clichy's return is the only change for City against Watford this afternoon.

Starting XI

The Blues line up as follows: Caballero, Clichy, Kompany (c), Otamendi, Fernandinho, De Bruyne, Toure, Sane, Silva, G Jesus, Aguero

Subs: Gunn, Sagna, Sterling, Kolarov, Navas, Stones, Iheanacho

Expect Sergio Aguero to drop deeper looking for the ball and Gabriel Jesus to spearhead the attack as the South American duo did against West Brom.

Vincent Kompany was a slight concern after coming off against West Brom but is fine to skipper the side again this afternoon.

Pablo Zabaleta isn’t on the bench today so his farewell against the Baggies was his last game in a City shirt.

Bacary Sagna returns to the bench.

Formation:

Watford line-up:

Tactics:

Same again for the Blues against Watford – it would appear – with Fernandinho filling in at right back and Gael Clichy returning to left-back duties.

It’s an attacking City line-up and there’s plenty of goals in this side – if everything goes well!

Scenarios today are abound but all City need to is leave Vicarage Road with thee points. That will guarantee third spot while a draw would secure at least fourth and Champions League qualification – albeit via a play-off route!
