Watford vs Arsenal
English Premier League
Date: Monday, 15 April 2019
Kick-Off 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Vicarage Road Stadium (Watford).
Arsenal quickly rebounded from a poor display in a 1-0 loss to Everton in the previous round of Premier League. They clinched a huge 2-0 win over Italian giants Napoli to gain big advantage ahead of the reverse fixture of their Europa League quarter-final tie at Stadio San Paolo in Naples.
The Gunners are back to domestic affairs on Monday evening when they travel to Vicarage Road Stadium to take on FA Cup finalists Watford in one of the most exciting ties of the Matchday.
Unai Emery’s men dropped down to 5th place in the Premier League standings after the mentioned loss to Everton eight days ago at Goodison. They are one point below fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur and three behind Chelsea in third, but have a game in hand to the Blues.
Nonetheless, with just six games left to play, a win here is a must for Arsenal. Can they build on the Thursday’s win over Napoli and grab another success here at Vicarage Road Stadium?
Watford vs Arsenal: Head-to-head
Arsenal lead the head to head tie by just one win coming into 25th meeting with the Hornets.
The Gunners won last two clashes against Watford without conceding a single goal along the way, but both of these victories came at Emirates Stadium.
Each of last two H2H affairs at Vicarage Road Stadium offered goals at both ends.
Watford vs Arsenal: Prediction
The Hornets have nowhere to go in the Premier League table. They sit 10th at the moment, but will come into this in the highest of spirits after a massive 3-2 comeback win over Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend at Wembley.
Javi Gracia’s troops showed a fantastic team spirit to come back from a two-goal deficit and go all the way to the FA Cup final where they will play Manchester City for the trophy in mid-May.
Watford enjoyed a strong attacking form of late. They notched seven goals in last outings. All of past six matches they played across competitions saw goals scored at both ends. Backing this option is the best way to go here when they come across attacking-minded Arsenal.
