📏 Form Guide

Arsenal WDLWWL

Arsenal will be hoping for a better result after the 1-0 Premier League loss in their previous game against Aston Villa.

At the other end, Aston Villa had 8 attempts at goal with 3 on target. Trézéguet (27') scored for Aston Villa.

Mikel Arteta's Arsenal have found the net 8 times in their last 6 outings. The tally of goals that have been scored against them in that same time amounts to 5.

A look at their previous results shows us that Arsenal:

  • are unbeaten in the league by Watford in their previous 4 matches.
  • are undefeated in their previous 8 league matches at home. Visiting teams have certainly not had an easy time of it here.

Watford LLWWLL

Since being defeated in their last game at the hands of Manchester City in Premier League competition, Watford and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.

On the other side, Manchester City had 26 attempts at goal with 10 of them on target. Raheem Sterling (31', 40'), Phil Foden (63') and Aymeric Laporte (66') scored for Manchester City.

The numbers tell their own story, and Watford have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, seeing their opponents hit 15 goals overall. In defence, The Hornets have not been doing too well. That sort of trend won’t necessarily be sustained into this game, though.

Their prior results show that Watford:

  • are winless against Arsenal in away games against them for the last 2 league games.
  • are without a win away from home in their last 7 league games.

↔️ Head to head

An examination of their prior head-to-head meetings dating back to 31/01/2017 shows us that Arsenal have won 3 of these games & Watford 2, with the tally of drawn results standing at 1.

An aggregate of 16 goals were scored between the two sides in these games, with 10 for The Gunners and 6 netted by The Hornets. That’s an average goals per game of 2.67.

📋 Team News: Arsenal

Mesut Özil (Back trouble), Gabriel Martinelli (Knee Injury), Pablo Marí (Ankle Injury) and Bernd Leno (Stretched Ligament) aren’t available for Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta.

It seems likely that The Gunners should go for a 3-4-3 formation for this one featuring Damian Emiliano Martinez, Kieran Tierney, David Luiz, Rob Holding, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Daniel Ceballos, Granit Xhaka, Hector Bellerin, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe.

📋 Team News: Watford

Watford manager Hayden Mullins has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Dimitri Foulquier (Muscle Injury), Daryl Janmaat (Knee Injury) and Gerard Deulofeu (Ruptured cruciate ligament) can’t be considered.

We’re of the thinking that The Hornets might elect for a 4-3-3 formation, giving starts to Ben Foster, Adrian Mariappa, Christian Kabasele, Craig Cathcart, Adam Masina, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Nathaniel Chalobah, Will Hughes, Ismaïla Sarr, Troy Deeney and Danny Welbeck.

🔮 Prediction

We feel that Watford are certainly able to find the back of the net against this Arsenal side, although that probably won’t be enough to prevent defeat.

We’re tipping a close game with a 2-1 win for Arsenal after the 90. It will be interesting to see how this one goes.
