Manchester City vs. Watford

Liverpool's dip in form has been ruthlessly exploited by the champions. Watford travel to City after a tremendous campaign, but the stakes are high for the home side.

City have been here before. They are no longer the new kids on the block, hopeful of upsetting the apple cart.

Pep Guardiola has his team firing after their own performance issues, and with UFEA Champions League duty scheduled for Tuesday against Schalke, the Catalan might shuffle the pack.

City have been imperious at home, per OptaJoe:

Watford have been difficult to take points from this term. The visitors are eighth in the table and have lost just once in their past six games, but they still concede more than the teams around them in the top flight.

Traditionally, City have dominated Watford in recent years. The Sky Blues have won seven and drawn twice in the teams' nine Premier League encounters.

Watford coach Javi Gracia suggested he is calm and confident ahead of his team's visit to Manchester.

According to Sky Sports, Garcia said Watford will attempt to capitalise on their opportunities.

"I think we feel more comfortable playing at home rather than away, but it is true - this season - that we have got good results playing away as well. Now we are going to play City and we know it's going to be very difficult. They have played 15 games and they have won 14. We know, we know it, but we'll have some chances to try and take advantage. And we are going to do it."

Any changes Guardiola makes in preparations for Europe must not harm City's title defence.

Last season, City cruised during the last part of the campaign with little competition, but Liverpool are primed to fight until the death this season.

The Reds are expected to handle Burnley at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp's side have lost just once in the league this season, and despite a number of erratic performances of late, they will collect three points on Merseyside.


Arsenal vs. Manchester United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's reign as Manchester United's caretaker manager hit new heights on Wednesday, when his side stormed into the quarter-finals of the Champions League. The 3-1 second-leg result at PSG was both unexpected and unbelievable.

United were quick to highlight their achievement in Paris:

Your club could never 🙅‍♂️🙅‍♀️ https://t.co/wAxtwcKLgy

The Red Devils have been electrifying on the road since the change of management at Old Trafford in December. Solskjaer has given his players the licence to attack and play with a flair that was previously suppressed.

Like United, Arsenal are also in transition, and after a wonderful spell towards the start of the campaign that saw them go 22 matches unbeaten, success has plateaued.

The Gunners have lost league games to Southampton, Liverpool, West Ham United and Manchester City since December but have maintained a promising standard under coach Unai Emery.

Former boss Arsene Wenger failed to change the team's identity over his final several years in charge, but Emery has been more experimental during his time in the capital.

Mesut Ozil has not been a guaranteed starter, with Aaron Ramsey given playing time despite his impending departure to Juventus.

United are still recovering from an injury crisis that inexplicably has not affected results.

However, it can only be a matter of time before they hit a wall with a number of key talents missing.

Solskjaer's men dumped Emery's side out of the FA Cup at the Emirates Stadium in January. United collected a 3-1 win, and Arsenal will get the chance to exact a measure of revenge on Sunday.

The battle for fourth has developed into a chess match, and neither team will want to lose, prompting the tightest of contests in north London.
