In a sentence: With Arsenal on the slide and in desperate need for a victory, will Watford be the next side to hand the Gunners another defeat?

Last time: Watford scored a late winner back in October to seal a 2-1 win at Vicarage Road.

This time: Arsenal to win is 1/2, a draw is 17/5 and a Watford win is priced at 5/1.

You might remember: A few years ago, Watford knocked Arsenal out of the FA Cup thanks to a 1-0 win at the Emirates.

Betting Tips & Predictions

Arsene Wenger is forever under pressure at Arsenal these days

It’s been a tough old time for the red half of North London lately, with loses against Manchester City and Brighton bringing up the conversation of Wenger Out again, and though the win over Milan was welcome, it won’t be enough to silence the critics. That being said, Watford have a rather poor record against Arsenal at the Emirates, but if you want a repeat of Watford’s 2-1 win from last season, you can get that at 16/1.

However, a 2-1 Arsenal win is priced at 7/1 and could be worth something, especially if you want Aubameyang to score first, which will get you a price of 40/1. As for Watford goal scorers, Troy Deeney to score at anytime is at 21/10 and 8/1 to score first. Richarlison has been going through a rough patch of form, but he did tear Arsenal apart earlier in the season, and is 10/1 to score first.

It may be worth looking at a bet involving a goalscorer and a result, with Aaron Ramsey to score at any time in a 3-1 Arsenal win being at 25/1, and whilst Ramsey may not be in the best form this is the kind of game he needs to shine and regain some confidence.

Match Summary


Look out for:

Both teams to score. Watford could upset Arsenal’s defence, but the Gunners have goals and it’s 69/100 that both sides find the back of the net.


We fancy:

A 2-1 Arsenal win would be exactly what they need, and it’s available at a price of 7/1.


It’s a long shot, but:

Watford have had some mixed results this season but they’ve rarely been thrashed, which would make an Arsenal 4-o win – priced at 20/1 – particularly surprising.
