Pep Guardiola's men are on course for another record-breaking season in terms of their attacking output and should find plenty of joy at Vicarage Road

Manchester City's seemingly relentless march towards another Premier League title continued with a 3-1 win against Bournemouth.

38 points from 14 games sees the holders at just 1/5 (1.20) with 888Sport to retain their crown.

Pep Guardiola now takes his side to face Watford looking to extend their winning streak to seven games in this competition.

888Sport go 2/7 (1.29) that the visitors do just that. The Hornets went down 2-0 at Leicester at the weekend and are now without a victory in four matches with three of those ending in defeat. It's 9/1 (10.0) that the hosts snap that streak in style while a draw is available at 24/5 (5.80).

While that price on away win is unlikely to appeal to many as a single wager, it's tough to argue that the reigning champions should be much bigger.

City have won the last eight head-to-head clashes between the pair. During that spell they've scored at least twice in every game and won by an aggregate score of 27-4 overall.

It's not just against Watford that Guardiola's men have excelled. Their away form in general has been excellent in the Premier League. They've won 10 of their previous 13 trips away from the Etihad and scored 30 times.

That prolific run means that the reigning champions are on course to break their record of 106 league goals in this campaign and it's tough to argue given the form of the forwards at their disposal.

888Sport go 49/50 (1.98) that the visitors score three or more goals and that looks worth backing.

Liverpool achieved that mark at Vicarage Road as did Bournemouth and the ease with which Leicester City were able to establish a 2-0 advantage in the first half an hour has got to be a huge concern to Javi Gracia.

The 1-0 win over Tottenham was the only occasion in Manchester City's last six league matches where they've failed to score at least three times. With Watford's soft centre on full display the visitors have more than enough to take full advantage and rack up several more strikes.
