Watford vs Arsenal Prediction & Match Preview

Watford vs Arsenal
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 15 September 2019
Kick-off at 16:30 UK / 17:30 CET
Venue:  Vicarage Road (Watford).

Watford are one of the only two teams left in the table that are yet to register a win and have so far salvaged just a point after four games. The hosts have been far from impressive in the attacking third and have found the back of the net just twice, despite bringing in the likes of Sarr and Welbeck in the summer.

A frustrating 1-1 draw against Newcastle was all that they could manage in their last trip on the road, while at home, the Hornets were handed a 3-1 defeat by Newcastle.

The Gunners have already stumbled once in the new campaign. However to their defense, it was against the reigning European champions Liverpool, that too on their home turf. Nevertheless, the visitors were able to bounce back, with a draw in their most recent clash, which saw the away side make a comeback from being two goals down to ultimately share the spoils with Tottenham.

Home advantage alone is not going to cut it for Watford in this one, as the visitors are sizing up to be the favorites to walk away with all three points.

Watford vs Arsenal Head to head (h2h)

  • Three of their last five fixtures have seen Arsenal come out on top.

  • Watford have not kept a clean sheet against Arsenal in their previous ten games.
  • Half of their last eight meetings have seen both teams get their names on the scoresheet together.

Watford vs Arsenal Prediction

The Hornets have not got off to the best of starts and have already hit rock bottom with their disappointing performance. The squad have been at the losing end in their last two games in a running on home soil and have conceded six goals as well while retaliating with just one of their own.

Additionally, Watford have not been faring well against this opponent in their previous clashes here, and have picked up the win just once in their last seven matchups. It is also worth mentioning that Unai Emery’s side have been showing a real fighting spirit in their respective clashes and have already tasted success in one of their only two outings.

With Watford boasting a poor form even with home advantage intact, an easy win for the North London side is definitely in the reckoning.

Furthermore, Arsenal have been the ones to break the deadlock in their last five visits to this venue. Taking into account that Watford have also scored just one goal from their previous two games here as well, count on the Gunners to find the back of the net before their foes do on Sunday.
