arsenal vs watford

A 5-0 win at Southampton on Saturday means Arsenal have failed to win just one of their last seven competitive outings. The welcome of Watford provides them with the ideal chance to continue their good form ahead of Saturday’s trip to Chelsea.

Watford crashed out of the FA Cup at the weekend and now have won just once in their last nine outings. The Hornets have lost just one of their last six meetings with the Gunners and are expected to struggle at the Emirates on Tuesday night.

Arsenal come into the fixture as overwhelming favourites and should win here.

Swansea have proved difficult opponents for Arsenal in the past but most of their success has come at Arsenal. On home soil they have lost three of their last four against the Gunners. Naija and Bet

Arsenal are unbeaten in four matches but their haven’t been too many convincing displays in that time and this could be the time for Swansea to catch them off guard, although that still seems unlikely.
