Manchester City are bidding to set a new club record 10th win in a row against Watford after securing a third straight victory of the season at Everton last Sunday.

That was the club's ninth successive three points following on from their six wins at the end of last season, equalling a record of top-flight wins set in 1912.

City last lost on April 12, at Manchester United, and were last beaten at the Etihad Stadium on January 18, by Arsenal.

Watford, by contrast, are also unbeaten but are the only team in the Premier League to have drawn all three games. In Sunday's goalless draw with Southampton, they failed to have a shot on target, with 13 attempts either blocked or off target.

They have visited Manchester City just six times previously in the league, drawing one and winning two, most recently in April 1987. In their only previous Premier League visit, in December 2006, they drew 0-0.

Since then, Watford have returned twice in the FA Cup, losing both and conceding seven goals.

City will miss Pablo Zabaleta for up to a month with a serious knee injury while Watford are without Lloyd Doyley and Joel Ekstrand.
