Much has been made of Arsenal’s awful form of late, with serious pressure now mounting on manager Arsene Wenger. The week that saw the Gunners lose the Carabao Cup Final to Manchester City and suffer another 3-0 defeat to the Premier League leaders four days later culminated in an embarrassing loss at the hands of Brighton, and even a win against Watford here doesn’t seem like it will be enough to appease the growing anger surrounding the Arsenal faithful.
Whilst Arsenal have lost their last four in all competitions, Watford’s form has improved. The Hornets have won three of their last four games, including a fantastic 4-1 home win against Chelsea to take them to up to ninth place in the table, and only nine points behind the Gunners. Away from home Watford haven’t exactly set the league alight, with only four wins from 14 so far, but they’ll fancy their chances against an Arsenal side extremely low on confidence.
