Arsenal v Watford betting preview

Arsenal's season has been a disappointment yet again and they look set to finish the season further away from the top four than they even managed in the last campaign. With the gap between themselves and the Champions League spots now sitting at 13 points, the Gunners are also unable to get their hands on any domestic cups this season having lost the EFL Cup final and having been knocked out of the FA Cup by Championship side Nottingham Forest.

Supporters have long been split over the future of Arsene Wenger at the Emirates Stadium and it seems to be the case again this season, with the Gunners' recent displays doing nothing to appease those that are upset with the overall performance of the club. Prior to Thursday's Europa League clash with AC Milan, the North Londoners have lost four consecutive games and are in desperate need of a league win here at 1/2 with William Hill.

Watford appear to be a club shrouded in inconsistency and this season has been no different. Their policy of rotating managers on a regular basis has admittedly served them well over recent years, but many expected Marco Silva to keep the job for quite some time after he made a blistering start to the season and approaches for his services from Everton were blocked by the Hertfordshire club, but he has since been sacked and replaced by Javi Gracia.

At one point in the early stages of Gracia's stewardship it seemed as though the Hornets may be getting dragged into the quagmire of a relegation fight in the bottom half of the table, but in fact they make the trip to the capital this weekend on some much improved form with three wins in their last four games including a 4-1 hammering of reigning champions Chelsea. After beating Arsenal in the last two meetings can they pick up another three points here at 5/1 with Coral?

Arsenal v Watford predictions

Despite poor recent performances, Arsenal have actually been fairly strong at home so far this season and have lost just two Premier League matches at the Emirates Stadium. Although defensively they have left a lot to be desired of late, they will surely have been working on that side of their game in training this week before coming up against a Hornets side that haven't scored in their last four away games. The home win to nil is 2/1 with Boylesports.

Deadline day signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang may have missed a vital penalty in Arsenal's 3-0 defeat to Manchester City in the Premier League, but the Gabon international has already found the net twice in an Arsenal shirt, once on his debut versus Everton and again in the defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion last weekend. The former Borussia Dortmund man will be looking to add to his tally here and he has the quality to do so at evens with Paddy Power.
