Manchester City are on course for a domestic treble, after lifting the League Cup (on penalties from Chelsea) and the Premier League by a point from Liverpool.

City head to Wembley as the shortest ever favourites and are 1/8 to win the Cup with Watford 6/1. City are 1/3 to win in 90 minutes and Watford are as big as 14s.

City were patient in the semis when Brighton, true to form, played effectively with ten men behind the ball. City won by a singe goal, but in reality were never going to lose. Watford play a totally different style and in Capoue and Doucoure have a potent midfield duo.

Skipper Troy Deaney has to put a lid on his tempre but is a most under-rated player and 'keeper Gomes has seen it all before. They will have a game plan and it will be to try and stop City scoring.

Watford can't allow City to tun it into an open game because they could get hammered. City have scored more than 4 goals a dozen times or more this term.

If Watford can keep tabs with City they will get a chance and if they are to win it is likely to be 1-0 - which makes the 33/1(Betfred) about that scoreline worth a look. Wigan famously held City late into the game six years ago, before scoring a knock-out late, late winner.

Form says City, but if having a bet take a punt on Watford and 1-0 for a big, big upset.
