MAN CITY hated playing Norwich last weekend but always love facing up to Watford.
The champions were rocked at Carrow Road but returned to winning ways with an easy 3-0 Champions League win at Shakhtar Donetsk.
Pep Guardiola's side, still with injury problems in defence, got a wake-up call with their first defeat in 25 in the Premier League and I expect them to get on with the job of chasing Liverpool.
City have won 11 in a row against the Hornets and netted 38 goals in that spell so the obvious bet would be City and over 3.5 match goals at 5-6 at boylesports. Just to win they are no bigger than 1-8 at Betfred.
Watford lie at the foot but new boss Quique Sanchez Flores guided them to a point against Arsenal last week with more than a little help from their opponents.
Sergio Aguero was rested for the trip to Ukraine and will be fresh and raring to go. Back the Argentine to score first at 27-10 with Unibet.
There are only two other 3pm EPL kick-offs today and both could be home wins.
Norwich are 14-5 with Marathonbet at Burnley but all their points have come at home in front of a buoyant Carrow Road crowd.
Away from home they're the worst team in the league with no points and six goals conceded in two games.
First up it's Leicester v Spurs and Brendan Rodgers will be keen to at least take a point after a disappointing defeat at Man United last week.
The Foxes are 2-1 at Unibet but Leicester draw no bet is the safer option at 4-5 with Marathonbet. Spurs have drawn 2-2 in both their away games at Man City and Arsenal so take both to score at 4-6 at boylesports.
Tomorrow's big game is Chelsea v Liverpool with both wanting a response from midweek Champions League defeats. Liverpool were wasteful in Naples but I expect them to beat a youthful Blues outfit.
In the Championship I like Nottm Forest at home to Barnsley after they won at Swansea last week. Forest are 4-5 with Marathonbet.
Brentford at 20-23 with Ladbrokes at home to basement boys Stoke and in the lunchtime game back Leeds at home to a Derby side without a win in six.
Sunderland at Bolton at around 1-2 looks the safest bet in League One and in League Two I'll be on Crewe at 9-10 with Marathonbet at home to Salford.
- City & over 3.5 goals
