Almunia admits Watford know they're rank outsiders against Man City

Watford goalkeeper Manuel Almunia accepts they're massive outsiders for their FA Cup tie with Manchester City.

The two clubs meet this afternoon.

"The numbers and statistics are there for everyone to see," said Almunia. "We have been joking in the dressing room about how many they are scoring. But you always look forward to big games and goalkeepers always expect they'll have a lot of work to do.

"Goalkeepers always think we will be busy and tomorrow the whole team will need to work very hard. We will prepare the best we can to get a result but maybe we will have to play with 12 or 13 players!"
