Manchester City vs Watford - Who's in and who's out?
Manchester City could be forced to face Watford without four players. Leroy Sané, Aymeric Laporte and John Stones are long-term absences for Guardiola, whiler Phil Foden may join that list after missing their UCL debut this season due to illness.
Watford will have two absences for them, but one of them may be crucial to the outcome of the game. Troy Deeney will sit this one out due to injury, and he will be joined on the sidelines by Craig Cathcart, leaving Craig Dawson and Christian Kabasele as the main options at center back.
