Football tips today for Watford – Arsenal
Watford hosts Arsenal at the Vicarage Road in a match from the 28th round of the English Premier League. Stay with us and our football tips today. Let’s get to work!
Watford need to intensify their efforts in surviving. The Hornets are currently 19th in the league with just 19 points which puts them in the relegation zone. At this moment they are just 3 points behind the 17th Everton so surely they have chances to survive. But they need points.
Last week Watford made a very good result as they won a point against Manchester United at the Old Trafford. Their visit to the Theatre of Dreams ended with a 0-0 draw. For Roy Hodgson’s team it was all great news to get a point at such a difficult ground.
Arsenal need the three points here as they keep fighting for a Top 4 finish. The Gunners are currently 6th in the standings and two points behind the 4th Manchester United. For Arsenal it’s a must-win situation when they face Watford at the Vicarage Road.
Mikel Arteta’s team is enjoying a run of three consecutive wins in the league. In their last game they hosted Wolves and it was very dramatic, but they clinched a 2-1 win. Arsenal scored their two goals in the last minutes when Pepe equalised and Wolves’ Jose Sa scored himself an own goal in the 95th minute.
Arteta could make some changes in his line-up for the next game. Nicolas Pepe could be rewarded with a starting place for his goal against Wolves while Edward Nketiah also made a good impression from the bench as he provided an assist.
That’s our football tips today for the Premier League fixture between Watford and Arsenal on Sunday. The Hornets took a great result against Manchester United last week, but now they have another tough test ahead of them.
