Current form — Arsenal v. Watford

The Gunners out to extend winning run

Arsenal will be out to extend their fine run of results lately. Mikel Arteta’s side have really been enjoying their football in their previous 3 matches, which started off with a 3-1 win against Aston Villa. They went on to beat Leeds by 2-0, before also getting the better of Leicester in a 0-2 victory.

The Hornets struggling for results

Watford will enter the match hoping to finally end their dismal run of form in recent matches. Claudio Ranieri’s side are a bit back and forth currently, and sadly they are more back than forth. Against Liverpool, they got beaten by a 0-5 score, before winning 2-5 against Everton. They were back on loser street last time out, in a 0-1 defeat against Southampton.

Just limiting an expected defeat might be the target for Watford here. Siding with the Gunners at odds of 1.42 is a no-brainer in the kind of form they are displaying.

Arsenal v. Watford — fixture history

Primary goalscorer

Looking at the goalscorer market, it would seem a good idea to side with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. He is one of the players from Arsenal who are in their best form. He managed to find the back of the net 3 times in his last 6 games, and will surely want to add some more goals against Watford.

The visitors will be looking to in-form Joshua King to find the net once again, as he has been their main man recently. The Norwegian forward has netted 3 goals for Watford in their last 6 matches.
