Manchester City take on Watford in the FA Cup final

City are unsurprisingly strong favourites against a Watford side who finished 11th in the Premier League.

But underdogs Watford are out to cause an upset and crown their fine season with their first piece of major silverware.

Should the Hornets pull off a shock, they will secure qualification for the Europa League.

City beat Brighton while Watford saw off Wolves in the semi-finals to reach the historic final.

Watford’s only appearance in the final came in 1984, when they suffered a 2-0 defeat to Everton, while City are five-time winners of the competition, with their last success coming in 2011.

City may be big favourites but boss Pep Guardiola is taking nothing for granted: “It is a cup final, anything can happen like a red card,.

“In one game, anything can happen. Normally the better team wins but a decision of the referee could make the difference.

“In the Premier League you have another chance and can be more relaxed, but this is completely different.”

Manchester City vs Watford: Team news and line-ups

Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho is hoping to prove his fitness to face Watford in Saturday’s FA Cup final at Wembley.

The Brazilian, who missed the final three games of the champions’ Premier League title run-in with a knee injury, returned to training this week.

Kevin De Bruyne could also feature after returning from a hamstring problem as a substitute at Brighton last week but left-back Benjamin Mendy has been ruled out through injury.

Kevin De Bruyne is expected to be fit enough to feature

Provisional squad: Ederson, Muric, Danilo, Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Laporte, Kompany, Zinchenko, Delph, Gundogan, Fernandinho, De Bruyne, D Silva, B Silva, Sane, Sterling, Mahrez, Jesus, Aguero.

Watford also have no new major injury concerns with only Domingos Quina out with a shoulder problem.

The Hornets will have Jose Holebas available. The defender looked like missing out through suspension after he was sent off in the final Premier League game of the season against West Ham, but the Football Association rescinded his red card.

Boss Javi Gracia has a decision to make in goal between Ben Foster and Heurelho Gomes, who has played every round of the competition so far.

Provisional squad: Foster, Mariappa, Cathcart, Kiko, Holebas, Doucoure, Hughes, Britos, Capoue, Cleverley, Pereyra, Deulofeu, Deeney, Gomes, Janmaat, Masina, Kabasele, Sema, Chalobah, Success, Gray.
