The second home game of the season, and first 3 O'clock Saturday kick off sees the unbeaten Manchester City welcome Watford to the Etihad.

Watford are a team stuffed full of household names - NOT! TBH, aside from Valon Behrami, a name I'm familiar with from international football, I would struggle to name a single Watford player. Such is the funny nature of football, that even a mere 10 years ago, many opponents probably could have said the same about City, a team now stuffed to the gills with internationally acclaimed talent. Funny old game!

Watford, widely touted as relegation certainties by almost every pundit going, sit in a respectable 12th place in the league after 3 games and 3 draws. They're certainly not setting any goalscoring records with 2, but nor are they leaking like a sieve, having conceded the same number.

City on the other hand, have 8 goals with none conceded, making this game appear a mere formality. However, as we learned last season, taking on the lesser lights of the Premier League was not always something we were particularly good at, and many people have suggested that complacency, perhaps with a touch of arrogance, was the reason for dropping so many points against unfancied teams.

Will that happen again this season? On balance, I'd have to say no - we look a different team to last season, with every single player looking fired up and determined to win back the title. 3 games in is a bit soon to judge, but the entire mentality of the squad looks much improved, and I can't see us letting Watford pull off a stunning upset, or even sneak a point. Stranger things have happened, but sorry Watford, I can't see you getting anything - and if we're in the mood, you're in for a hiding.

The questions:

Guess the attendance:

Predict the time of the first goal:

Name the first goal scorer:

Predict the correct scoreline:

Bonus question:

I have virtually no idea who any of Watford's attackers are, aside from reading their names on the squad list, nor do I know if they're any good at all. They aren't scoring many, and we haven't conceded any, largely due to the fact our resolute defence has been limiting the number of shots on target.

What i want to know is: How many shots on target will Watford actually manage?

5 points for a correct answer. If nobody gets an absolutely correct figure, the next nearest guess(es) can have 3 points for making the effort.

Happy predicting!
