Betting tips Watford vs. Arsenal

Arsenal to avoid getting stung by the Hornets

Watford change manager more than is probably healthy yet it appears to be a pattern that works for them. Will their latest change help them against the Gunners? Have a read of our preview here:

Out with the old and in with the old?

It think it is fair to say that most people were shocked when, during the first half of England’s game against Bulgaria, Watford announced they had sacked manager Javi Garcia. 30 minutes later they announced that their previous coach Quique Sanchez Flores had been chosen to take over the role.

You might reasonably expect him to stay well clear of a job he’d been rather harshly dismissed from previously and looking at the way Watford treated Garcia, may do so again in the, not so distant, future.

Three defeats in the opening four games was enough to convince the board at Watford to make yet another change in the dugout (this is now manager number nine since December 2013) and they will be hoping for a change in fortune.

The next three games sees the Hornets face Arsenal, Manchester City and Wolves which, when you haven’t got a win all season, can seem pretty daunting. The Watford board are yet to get a key decision majorly wrong so the fans will just have to trust their judgement again on this one.

Arsenal way behind the best

Norwich have scored the same number of goals as Arsenal this season and that is a fairly worrying scenario for the North Londoners. Despite saving the London derby thanks to an excellent comeback performance, the defence is still as bad as it always been.

Arsenal need to sort that out if they are ever going to challenge for anything other than the Europa League. As a marker of how far they still have to go to catch up with the top sides in England, you only have to look at their 3-1 mauling at Anfield in which the Gunners were torn apart.

Unai Emery’s men were 3-0 before the hour mark meaning the game was over as a contest and Arsenal were, once again, being given a stark reminder of their frailties. It is hard to see how the Gunners improve from here but they will fancy their chances against a Watford side that have not started the season well and who have already sacked their manager.

The attacking talents of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are a delight to watch and that, at least, is some consolation.

Watford v Arsenal betting tip

Arsenal will have been pleased to grab a point against Tottenham last weekend after falling 2-0 behind. Even though Watford are at home and have a new manager it is hard to see them getting a result against the Gunners. Therefore, backing Arsenal to win at even odds is our pick here.
