Half-Time Report: Watford leading Manchester City at the break

Championship side Watford are leading Manchester City 2-0 in their FA Cup fourth-round clash at the Etihad Stadium.

Fernando Forestieri and Troy Deeney have scored first-half goals to give Watford a 2-0 lead against Manchester City at half time in their FA Cup fourth-round tie.

Watford felt that they should have had a penalty when Ikechi Anya took the ball past Costel Pantilimon, before being brought down by the goalkeeper, but nothing was given by the referee.

In the 21st minute, the visitors took a shock lead. Forestieri was slid through on goal by Deeney and he kept his cool to finish through the legs of Pantilimon.

Watford scored their second on the half-hour mark when Deeney latched onto Anya's pass and slotted the ball into the back of the net.

The visitors nearly went into the break with a three-goal lead, but Daniel Pudil saw his strike come back off the post.
