Watford will host Premier League champions Manchester City on Tuesday night at Vicarage Road and will be pleased to have a near fully-fit squad for the game, according to the club’s official website.

The Hornets will know that they will need to be at their very best against Pep Guardiola’s side to have any chance of coming away from the game with a positive result.

Javi Gracia, who has seen his fine work rewarded with a new contract recently, will not have been pleased with what he has witnessed from his Watford team.

The Vicarage Road outfit were beaten at the weekend by Leicester City and have picked up just one point in their last four matches.

Goals have also become somewhat of an issue for Gracia’s men recently as well which may start to become something of a concern.

However, heading into the game against City, Watford will be pleased to have the opportunity to choose from a number of players for the game.

Adalberto Penaranda is the only player to miss the game definitely as he continues to struggle with a foot injury.

Tom Cleverley is thought to be closing in on a return to first-team action after being out for almost a year, whilst Daryl Janmaat is also expected to be within in contention in the very near future.
