It would mark a sensational achievement for City and their chances of winning the trophy are ranked extremely highly - with two leading pundits predicting comfortable victories. You can see what they had to say below. Mark Lawrenson: 2-0 Man City ( BBC ) "Watford are a physical side and they will surely try use that to their advantage.

This weekend, Manchester City have the opportunity to continue their dominance over English football by completing the domestic treble. Pep Guardiola's side have already secured the League Cup and the Premier League title, with Watford being the only side to stand between them and FA Cup glory at present. Javi Gracia's team have had a productive season, with a cup final to look forward to, as well as an 11th placed league finish attained, albeit after spending the majority of the campaign in and around seventh place. His Watford side have several threats, and they're a determined bunch overall, indicating that it'll certainly be no walk in the park for Guardiola's champions. This is highlighted by their two previous meetings this season. Despite City wininng both fixtures 2-1 and 3-1, the actual competition on the pitch was much tighter that the scorelines suggested. Guardiola's team had to hang on to an extent in the latter minutes at Vicarage Road, and at the Etihad, City failed to … [Read more...] about Who Guardiola must play vs Watford in FA Cup final

Man City fans have sent a Riyad Mahrez selection message to Pep Guardiola ahead of Saturday's FA Cup final. City have the chance to become the first team in English football history to win a domestic treble when they take on Watford at Wembley, after already winning the Carabao Cup and retaining the Premier League. They won the race to the title by a single point over Liverpool on the final day of the season thanks to a 4-1 victory over Brighton, but it's easy to forget the nerves and worry before the game. Many City fans were shocked when the team news was announced and Mahrez was making his first start since the 1-0 defeat in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals to Tottenham. It had been a difficult first season for City's record signing after missing a crucial penalty in the 0-0 draw with Liverpool earlier in the season and only making two appearances in the league in 2019. Yet Guardiola gave him the nod on the final day and he didn't disappoint. City were leading … [Read more...] about Guardiola sent Mahrez selection message ahead of FA Cup final
