Watford vs Arsenal Prediction: Premier League Match on 06.03.2022
Betting TipArsenal to Win
Arsenal return to Premier League action this weekend, as they make the short trip to Vicarage Road to take on Watford. The Gunners will be looking for a third straight win, while the Hornets will be hoping for a victory to improve their survival hopes.
Premier League Preview
It has been an excellent week or so for Arsenal, despite the fact that they haven’t played a single fixture. The Gunners watched on as both Manchester United and West Ham have dropped points over recent weeks in the battle for the top four. That means that the Gunners could move up to fourth with a win this weekend.
Arsenal are certainly the form side of the teams challenging for the Champions League places at present, as they are unbeaten in their previous four, and have won their last three games in the Premier League.
This weekend’s fixture will be their first game since February 24th, as they managed to come from behind to beat Wolves 2-1 at the Emirates. Both goals were scored in the final ten minutes, with a Jose Sa own goal eventually being the crucial moment in the fifth minute of injury time.
Watford still have an excellent chance of survival this season, as they sit three points from safety. However, wins have been in very short supply, as they have picked up just one victory in their last five fixtures in the league. But, confidence certainly would have been taken from their draw last weekend against Manchester United.
The Hornets may have ridden their luck in that fixture, as United had the vast majority of the possession and the chances. However, they were ultimately deserving of a point, as they defended excellently throughout the contest.
Watford vs Arsenal Head to Head
Arsenal boast an extremely strong record in this fixture, as they have picked up wins in five of the previous six meetings in the Premier League. The only game that they didn’t win was a 2-2 draw between the sides in the last fixture between the two at Vicarage Road. Arsenal won the meeting earlier in the season 1-0.
Watford vs Arsenal Prediction
The Hornets defended excellently last weekend at Old Trafford and will need to be at that same level again this weekend. However, we struggle to see past the in-form Gunners, who look to have an outstanding chance of finishing in the top four.
