Hornets can stifle City’s threat

Pep Guardiola

Manchester City have been superb as an attacking force recently but doubts persist as to their defensive solidity and Watford can exploit that weakness on Saturday.

In Vincent Kompany’s absence, relying on Nicolas Otamendi and John Stones is a risky business and Pep Guardiola’s team may have to settle for a draw, available at 9/2, against the Hornets.

Roy Hodgson takes charge of Crystal Palace for the first time since succeeding Frank de Boer but the Eagles, who have lost their first four Premier League matches of the season and failed to score a goal in any of them, will find it difficult to secure victory against Southampton.

With both teams struggling for goals a 1-1 draw at 11/2 looks good value.

Leicester have the firepower that can cause problems for Huddersfield, with a 2-0 victory for the Foxes available at 39/4, while Riyad Mahrez is good value at 15/2 to score the first goal.

Liverpool were once again defensively porous in the midweek 2-2 Champions League draw with Sevilla but their attacking verve should be too much for Burnley with a Reds win by a one-goal margin available at 13/5.

Joselu moved to Newcastle from Stoke last month and is 43/20 to score at any time against his former team, while Rafa Benitez’s side are 27/20 to beat the Potters.

Tottenham are in a rich vein of form and that will surely continue against a Swansea outfit that looks set for a lengthy battle to avoid relegation. A 2-0 Spurs win is available at 11/2, while the odds on there being over 4.5 goals at Wembley can be backed at 59/20.

West Ham should have gained confidence from Monday’s victory against Huddersfield and can beat West Brom by a one-goal margin at The Hawthorns at odds of 33/10.
