Watford vs Arsenal prediction comes before the 5th Premier League round matchup. This game will be played on Sunday, September 15th, at the Vicarage Road in Watford, England. In this match preview, you’ll get the best betting tips and correct score predictions based on the analysis of these two English teams.
Watford vs Arsenal Betting Tips
Watford are at the very bottom of the Premier League table at the moment. In four games they’ve played so far, they collected only one point. It happened in the previous round, when they played a 1:1 draw with Newcastle.
Due to their poor run, Watford board of directors decided to sack their manager Javier Gracia, subsequently appointing Quique Sanchez Flores as the new manager. His debut is going to happen this weekend when they play against Arsenal. Although the managerial change can help the players get more fired up for the match, Watford will still be major underdogs on Sunday.
Arsenal are coming to Watford with the intention of grabbing all three points. They beat Watford in each of their three previous meetings, including the one played in April at the Vicarage Road when the score was 1:0 for the away team. Apart from history, there are many other things going in Arsenal favor, starting with their recent form. With 7 points in four rounds, Arsenal are at the 6th place on the table.
And this is a pretty impressive achievement considering that they played against some very tough opponents in the four games. They lost to Liverpool and played a draw with Tottenham. But, when they played against weaker sides, such as Newcastle and Burnley, they won the maximum number of points.
The biggest worry for Arsenal ahead of the game with Watford is that this team is famous poor in away matches. Last season, for example, they won a big majority of the points while playing at home. They also dropped many points on the road. This season, however, they have been okay in away matches, beating Newcastle in the first round. They did lose at the Anfield to Liverpool, but weren’t as bad in that game as the final result would suggest. For all these reasons, Arsenal seem capable of winning this game, or at least not losing it.
