London, Jan 1 (IANS) Manchester City are preparing for their English Premier League (EPL) match against Watford on Saturday. Watford will be coming into this game after their recent loss against Tottenham on Monday, reports Xinhua. 

Placed third on the EPL points table, Manchester City, will be coming into the match with a bit more confidence after their recent goalless tie with league leaders Leicester. Ahead of their game against Watford, Manchester manager Manuel Pellegrini spoke about the team’s condition. “Yes, of course, we are in a good position. Always the best position is to be at the top of the table, but I think this season is a special Premier League. Maybe with a number of points we have in this moment, it’s not good to try to fight for the title in a normal season when you finish normally 56, 55, 53 points in front. But now just three points behind the leaders I think it’s an expected position. I hope we are going to complete a very good second part to the season,” he said. 

Currently sitting at the ninth spot, Watford have eight wins, five draws and six losses. Manchester City has 11 wins, three draws and five losses.
