Watford captain Manuel Almunia has urged his teammates to enjoy tomorrow's FA Cup fourth round match at Manchester City and relish playing against "the best players in the world".

City have been imperious this season at the Etihad Stadium, where they have scored 64 goals in 17 matches, averaging four goals a game.

Almunia though insists there is nothing to fear against the Premier League giants and says Watford have to enjoy the overall experience.

“We have to take it as a big thing for the club," he said.

"Everyone is looking forward to the game and playing against the best players in the world in an unbelievable atmosphere.

“It’s a reward for everyone at the club – the players, the staff, the directors, the supporters – everyone is really looking forward to it.

“Football gives you what you deserve but we have to enjoy the game.

“It would be great to get a draw and take Man City back to Vicarage Road and make the supporters really happy.”

A win is as likely as coming back from 4-0 down in the 1st leg against a top division side to win the 2nd leg 7-1 after extra time............. Hold on, I had a dream like that when I was 15 standing in the Rookery in floods of tears!!

As long as we make a good go of it I won't complain, we've been written off before a ball has been kicked so we have nothing to lose.
Lets get up there and roar the mighty yellows on.

I'm not looking forward to getting battered personally. I just hope if we get heavily beaten that there isn't a hangover effect into the Forest game.
