Reason For Watford vs Arsenal Predictions

Watford will be hoping that the famed new manager bounce takes effect when they host Arsenal at Vicarage Road on Sunday, but can that effect be quite as potent when your new manager is an old one?

With the club bottom of the Premier League after four matches, the infamously impatient Hornets hierarchy pulled the trigger and sacked popular manager Javi Gracia last week, replacing him with the man they axed in 2016, Quique Sanchez Flores.

Flores takes over a Watford side low on confidence, though the Hornets did show some signs of life just before the international break with a Carabao Cup victory over Coventry and a useful 1-1 draw at Newcastle – a result that earned them their first Premier League point of the season.

On Sunday, Watford take on an Arsenal side that has been putting in decidedly dichotomous performance so far this season. While the Gunners have been excelling in attack, they continue to look calamitous in defence, and Arsenal have both scored six and conceded six goals in the league so far this term.

Arsenal took just one point from their two most recent Premier League outings in what were admittedly tough fixtures against Liverpool at Anfield and against local rivals Tottenham at the Emirates.

The Gunners clawed their way back from two down against Spurs to rescue that point, and their thrilling comeback will have given their confidence a timely boost ahead of their trip to Watford.

Arsenal have won on five of their last six trips to Vicarage Road – a sequence that we expect them to enhance on Sunday, though the Gunners will have a hard time keeping a clean sheet.

Blanks on the road in the Premier League have proved elusive for Arsenal for a sustained period – in fact, the Gunners have kept their hosts out just three times in their last 31 top-flight away contests.

Both teams scored in a whopping 24 of those fixtures, and on Sunday Arsenal face a Watford side that registered at least once in 29 of their last 35 Premier League games on their own patch.

With a strong statistical history on our side, and neither defence looking capable of keeping anyone out at present, we recommend combining an Arsenal win with both teams to score for Sunday’s match.

Six of the Gunners’ last eight Premier League away victories saw both teams get on the scoresheet, and our correct score prediction follows that theme. We’re tipping Arsenal to win 2-1.
