Watford Prediction – Can Watford start climbing up table?

Watford suffered the first managerial casualty of the new Premier League season as The Hornets parted ways with former boss, Javi Gracia, and former coach, Quique Flores, has returned to the club to take over the reigns at Vicarage Road where his brief will be to pull Watford away from the bottom of the table.

It’s been a poor start to the new campaign for last season’s 11th placed finishers as Watford have lost 3 of their first 4 matches having suffered defeats to Brighton, Everton and West Ham but they did manage a point away at Newcastle United with a 1-1 draw.

Overall, that’s now 8 matches without a win in the top flight for Sunday’s hosts, a poor sequence of results which includes 6 losses, and this doesn’t bode well for the visit of Arsenal at Vicarage Road this Sunday.

Results at home have also been poor as Watford have lost their last 4 matches on the trot, along with no wins from their last 6 on home turf – incidentally, this sequence includes a 1-0 defeat to today’s opponents, Arsenal, in a 1-0 defeat back in April towards the end of last season.

Arsenal Prediction – Can Arsenal exploit poor Watford start?

Arsenal grabbed what seemed an unlikely point in their recent 2-2 draw with Tottenham at the Emirates Stadium as they came from 2 goals behind to snatch a point just before the Premier League’s brief halt for the international break.

The visitors will now be looking to make the most of their short trip to Vicarage Road on Sunday as The Gunners will be searching for all 3 points in this clash which could lift them up into the top three of the early standings of the Premier League.

Early back-to-back wins of this new season saw Arsenal register wins against Newcastle United away from home 1-0 and a 2-1 home win over Burnley, but they’ve been pegged back in recent times following a heavy 3-1 loss away at Anfield against Liverpool, along with the point in the North London derby with Tottenham.

If Arsenal are to make a serious challenge for a top four finish this season though, The Gunners need to improve upon results away from home as the visitors have won just 4 of their last 15 matches on their travels in the Premier League.


Key-Facts – Watford v Arsenal

  • Watford are without a win from their last 8 matches overall in the EPL
  • Arsenal have won just 4 of their last 15 matches on their travels in the EPL
  • Arsenal have won the last 3 meetings on the trot against Watford


Betting Tips Verdict

Watford start a new era under the second tenure of Quique Flores and it’ll take a little time for the team to adjust while Arsenal can’t afford to drop any points here.
