Arsenal v Watford Premier League Preview, 11th March 1.30pm
The Gunners have a decent run of home games coming up and really have to turn something on in them. They have lost their last three Premier League games home and away and had extra work on Thursday in the Europa League. Watford have improved recently to take three wins in their last four games and will probably be up for the challenge at the Emirates.
Arsenal v Watford Betting Odds*
Arsenal 4/9, Draw 7/2, Watford 11/2* (Betting Odds taken at 04:45 a.m. on March 8th, 2018)
Arsenal News and Form
Another tough game under the circumstances of their poor league form for Arsenal who sent out a strong team on Thursday night to face AC Milan in the Europa League. The Gunners are on a three-match losing streak in the Premier League with a shocking W2 L5 record in their last seven. However, their home form isn’t all that bad at all with a W3 D2 L1 record in their last six, the lone defeat in hat sequence happening against Manchester City. So it’s not all bad, but they don’t have a clean sheet in their last eleven Premier League matches and have looked pretty soft at the back so both teams to score at bet365 has to offer some appeal at 8/13* (betting odds taken on March 8th, 2018 at 5:35 p.m.) for the game. The Gunners have averaged 2.6 goals per game at home this season which is good, and 71% of their games at the Emirates have gone over 2.5 goals which is another good option to explore. The Gunners have shipped at least one goal in each of their last five home games, each of which have made it above the 2.5 goal line. They have opened the scoring in ten of their fourteen home games this season and they have scored in 93% of their home games.
Watford News and Form
The Hornets have pulled themselves back together with a good W3 D1 L1 record in their last five played. However, they haven’t posted a win on the road since November 25th when they collected a victory at Newcastle. Watford are D1 L6 in their last seven league away games so it’s hard to back them with a lot of confidence to pull out a win. Overall this season on their travels Watford have gone W34 D2 L8. The Hornets are without a goal in their last three away games and in total have scored just the two goals in total in their last seven road games. Troy Deeney has scored in three of Watford’s last four games so is in a nice bit of form and in the bet365 correct score market an Arsenal 2-1 victory is at 8/1 odds* (betting odds taken on March 8th, 2018 at 5:35 p.m.). Watford have scored seventeen goals across their fourteen away games this season and 59% of the goals they have scored away from Vicarage Road have been in the second half of matches. A win for Watford would put them to within six points of Arsenal.
Arsenal v Watford Head to Head
Watford were the winners when the two met at Vicarage Road earlier this season. They have taken back to back 2-1 league wins over Arsenal after a win this corresponding fixture last season. From the nine previous Premier League meetings, it is Arsenal who are W7 L2 up in the head to head. The Gunners have won three of their previous four Premier League home games against Watford, all to nil.
Who will win – Arsenal v Watford Predictions
Arsenal have been good on home soil in the Premier League this season which is one of the few positives that you can say about them. Watford just don’t have the form on the road to warrant a look in this one, so look for a home win & both teams to score.
