“…They [Manchester City] probably did not expect to be approaching Christmas scuffling with a team of Watford’s limitations for their first league win at home in almost three months… …ensuring only their fifth win in 16 matches… [additionally] Guardiola’s team had kept only two clean sheets in their previous 15 league fixtures.” – Guardian Sport
