Arsenal vs Watford Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Arsenal have made it four consecutive league wins after beating Everton 2-0 at the Emirates during the weekend. After a goalless first half, Alexandre Lacazette came up with the breakthrough in the 53rd minute. His fine finish was built upon by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scoring just three minutes later. The gunners went on to make it six consecutive wins in all competitions after beating Brentford 3-1 in the League Cup. Watford picked up a valuable point by drawing 1-1 with Fulham at Craven Cottage. Andre Gray provided the visitors with a surprise lead after just two minutes. Watford, though, were unable to hold on to the lead after conceding late to Aleksandar Mitrovic. The Hornets suffered a defeat against Spurs on penalties after drawing 2-2 in the League Cup.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Watford make the difficult trip to the Emirates Stadium aware that they have picked up wins on this ground in recent past. However, this Arsenal team will make it extremely difficult even if some key players appear to miss the game. Arsenal have been winning at half-time and full-time in each of the last four league encounters. Watford have not been exactly struggling, but the disappointment of a penalty shootout defeat in the League Cup can spill over to the Premier League. I would pick a winner at half-time and full-time for the gunners.

The form of Alexandre Lacazette has been excellent in the last few games and the forward has scored two goals in the last three games. The Frenchman failed to score in his only match against Watford in the past, but I would pick Alexandre Lacazette to score anytime in the game.

Arsenal win at half-time and full-time – 11/10

Alexandre Lacazette to score anytime – 10/11

Arsenal scored over 2.5 goals in 6 out of their last 10 games played

Arsenal Preview

Arsenal have been coming up with some impressive results under Unai Emery. The confidence level within the gunners is extremely high after six consecutive wins in all competitions. The club are now hoping to register seven consecutive wins for the first time in two years. The biggest worry for Emery will be maintaining the run even when the club face a couple of injury problems. At the moment, forwards like Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are playing a key role behind the success. Both have managed two goals each in the league.

Arsenal Team News

Ainsley Maitland-Niles (calf), Laurent Koscielny (Achilles tendon), Sokratis Papastathopoulos (knee), and Konstantinos Mavropanos (groin) are missing from action due to injuries.

Watford Preview

Watford may have gone winless in the last three games, but manager Javi Garcia cannot have any complaints about the hard work put in by his players during this period. Watford have faced a tough run of fixtures and the team has done well to come away with their pride intact. The Hornets need to maintain the momentum and performance levels as they prepare to face a run of games against the likes of Huddersfield and Newcastle just after the international break. Roberto Pereyra and Andre Gray are the top scorers with three goals each.

Watford Team News

Tom Cleverley (Achilles tendon), Younes Kaboul (broken foot), Adalberto Penaranda (hamstring), Sebastian Prodl (knock), Miguel Britos (thigh), and Stefano Okaka (knock) are unavailable due to injuries.
