Boasting an excellent record against Gracia's men, Al Hain-Cole thinks the England international offers strong value to get on target at Wembley

Watford’s backline will be in for a long afternoon when they face Manchester City at Wembley in Saturday’s FA Cup final.

The Citizens have scored an amazing 163 goals in 60 competitive matches so far this season, averaging four goals a game in this competition.

Responsible for 32 of that haul, Sergio Aguero is priced at just 14/5 (3.80) to open the scoring in the final, and 3/4 (1.75) to strike anytime.

Having equalled his most prolific ever season with 23 goals in all competitions, Raheem Sterling could prove a better value bet considering his record against the Hornets.

With six goals to his name in six previous encounters, the England international is well worth backing at 10/11 (1.91) to find the net once again.

On target 16 times this campaign despite struggling to nail down a place in the starting line-up, Leroy Sane is available at 13/10 (2.30) to underline his quality with one more goal.

Having made his professional debut under Pep Guardiola at Barcelona, Gerard Deulofeu will be hoping to come back to haunt his former boss in spectacular circumstances.

The Spaniard’s 13-goal haul is the first time he has hit double figures since the 2012/13 season while playing for Barcelona B, and he is available at 12/1 (13.00) to break the deadlock at Wembley, or 18/5 (4.60) to score for a sixth time in seven appearances.

Deulofeu’s form has eclipsed that of strikers Andre Gray and Troy Deeney, who have combined for a reasonably modest total of 20 goals in all competitions.

Nevertheless, Gray can be backed at 18/5 (4.60) to produce at the crucial moment, while Deeney is on offer at 4/1 (5.00) to follow up his last-minute semi-final equaliser with more heroics on Saturday.
