Watford goalkeeper Manuel Almunia has said that he and his teammates need to be upbeat about facing Manchester City in the FA Cup fourth-round tie on Saturday, according to Sky Sports.

The former Arsenal shot stopper is preparing to face free scoring Manchester City and his Watford teammates have been making jibes about the task ahead.

“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.”

Manchester City have already scored 106 goals in just 35 games so far this season, 68 of them coming at home.

The Watford captain has admitted that his side know the quality of players that they are up against and know to look for goals from everywhere, not just City’s strike force.

"It's not just (Sergio) Aguero, (Edin) Dzeko and (Alvaro) Negredo because the wingers are scoring goals - and the midfielders as well,” added the Spaniard.

“We will not be able to make any mistakes because they will punish us but it is a gift for us to play against one of the best teams in the world and we are looking forward to it.

“We know the quality of their players so there is nothing new for us to discover.”
