Watford News and Form – Can Watford beat Arsenal for first league win?

The first point of Watford’s league campaign came in their last match before the international break. It came in a 1-1 draw up at Newcastle. They have suffered defeats in their two league games at Vicarage Road this season. It was two heavy defeats as well, a 3-0 reverse against Brighton and a 3-1 loss against West Ham. Both of their league goals this season have come in the first half of games. They have shipped an average of exactly two goals per game.

If you look back to their form at the end of last season as well, the Hornets are on a four-match losing streak at Vicarage Road in the Premier League. They have shipped at least three goals in each of their last three there. Each of their last four at home have ended up going over 2.5 goals. When Quique Flores was in charge before he pretty much set them up 4-4-2 so it’s likely that they will go back to that. In total it is an eight-match winless streak of league form from Watford (D2 L6).

Key-Facts – Watford v Arsenal

  • The Hornets are winless in eight EPL home games
  • Arsenal have scored in all league games in this campaign
  • The Gunners have six wins in seven games at Vicarage Road

 

Arsenal News and Form – Can Gunners win at Vicarage Road again?

Arsenal won their opening two games of the new campaign, then they went into a couple of tougher games just before the international break. Those ended in a 3-1 loss against Liverpool and then a 2-2 draw against Spurs. Arsenal had fought back from being 2-0 down in their North London derby. So there was some resilience there.

A positive for Arsenal is that they have scored in all four league fixtures for this campaign, with each of their last three going over 2.5 goals. That’s probably going to be a feature of their games this season. Arsenal haven’t looked a great defensive side once again, something that plagued them on the road last season.

The two goals that Arsenal have scored away from home were in the first half of fixtures. They have won six of their last seven against Watford away from home in all competitions, so that is a very strong trend. They haven’t conceded in their last three against them. Pierre Emerick Aubameyang is their top scorer with a three-goal haul this season. Strike partner Alexandre Lacazaette has netted twice.

Watford v Arsenal Predictions

Arsenal to win: The Gunners look the more likely of the two to collect three points. Neither defence are particularly reliable whatsoever, but the Gunners without a doubt, carry more of an attacking threat than the Hornets. Away win & both teams to score.
