Watford Prediction

Watford bounced back in impressive fashion from recent back-to-back defeats away at both the Manchester clubs in recent matches away at City and United in 3-1 and 2-1 defeats respectively, when The Hornets recorded an impressive 4-1 home win against beleaguered Fulham, and the hosts have a chance to record back-to-back wins of their own on Monday night against Arsenal.

Watford have struggled away from home in recent times and their results on the road weren’t helped by having to travel to Anfield to face an in-form Liverpool outfit who recorded a convincing 5-0 win over Watford on their travels.

However, The Hornets registered a 2-1 home win over Leicester City following that loss at Liverpool, and they’ve picked up some decent results at Vicarage Road recently with three wins on the trot against Everton, Leicester City and Fulham on home turf.

Watford’s overall home record stands at a fairly reasonable looking 8-2-5 23/20 under manager Javi Gracia as his side head into this clash with Arsenal with a five match unbeaten sequence at home.

Midfielders Doucoure (5 goals) and Pereyra (6 goals) along with forwards Deeney (9 goals), Deulofeu (7 goals) and Gray (5 goals) look the most likely for Watford who have scored in 12 of their 15 home matches to date.


Key-Facts – Watford v Arsenal

  • Watford are unbeaten in their last 5 matches at home in the EPL
  • Arsenal have won just 1 of their last 9 away matches
  • 13 of Arsenal’s 15 away matches have seen both teams score


Arsenal Prediction

Following the action over the weekend, Arsenal have dropped down to 6th place but are just three points behind London rivals, Chelsea, who lost 2-0 away at Liverpool on Sunday afternoon, this opening the door for The Gunners to make up ground and replace Chelsea into 4th spot with a win at Vicarage Road on Monday night.

However, with an away record this season that stands at 5-4-6 26/28, this may be easier said than done for Unai Emery’s side who suffered defeat last time out on their travels when they lost 1-0 away at Everton in what was a slightly surprising result.

The defeat to Everton ended a decent sequence of results for Arsenal though as the visitors had put together a six match unbeaten run that included five wins against Huddersfield Town, Southampton, Bournemouth, Manchester United and Newcastle United, along with a point away at Tottenham.

But just one away win out of their last nine on the road should see a focused Arsenal outfit here who will have the added incentive of moving up into the top four again with a win here.

Betting Tips Verdict

Watford have been in pretty decent form at home all season while Arsenal need a win here to maintain their challenge for a Champions League spot – both teams to score here looks likely.
