Premier League Betting Tips: Arsenal v Watford

Watford face a crucial test in their relegation battle in this, their final Premier League game of the season, a tricky trip away to face Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal.

A 4-0 defeat to Man City last time out left the Hornets falling into the bottom three, with interim coach Hayden Mullins have taken charge after the shock dismissal of Nigel Pearson, their third full-time manager this season.

 

That leaves plenty of scope for late drama, with Watford’s task simple: better Aston Villa’s result against West Ham and they stay up. Equal it or worse and they’re relegation. The dimension of goal difference adds an extra level of intrigue, with Villa one better with six more goals scored. If their relegation rivals also pick up three points, they can still stay up by bettering the scoreline by two goals or more - it’s in their hands.

 

But they face a tough task to turn their form around, having conceded seven and scored just one in back-to-back defeats to City and West Ham heading into this fixture. 

 

As ever, they’ll likely be looking to talisman Troy Deeney, once again their top scorer this season with nine Premier League goals - four more than anyone else in the side. The striker, who has often played the role of antagonist against the Gunners in the past, is 7/4 to score anytime here and 6/1 to open the scoring.

 

Arsenal are looking to bounce back from a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa last time out, being brought back down to earth after two of the best results of Arteta’s short tenure to date, a 2-1 victory over champions Liverpool in the league followed by a 2-0 victory in the FA Cup over holders Man City. 

 

We recommend backing Arsenal for a victory here as they look to end their season on a high. They’ve won five of their last six at The Emirates in the Premier League, while visitors Watford have lost five in a row on the road. A home win is available for a modest 10/11.

    Arsenal 3-2 Watford - Match Report

    Watford suffer Premier League relegation following narrow Arsenal defeat

    Watford’s five-year stay in the Premier League ended as they were relegated following a final-day defeat at Arsenal.

    The Hornets knew their fate was out of their hands heading into the game at the Emirates Stadium and, despite rallying after slipping three goals behind, they ultimately fell to a 3-2 loss.

    Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang hit a first-half brace either side of Kieran Tierney’s first Arsenal goal – but Mikel Arteta’s side will have to be better than this showing if they are to beat Chelsea in the FA Cup final next week.

    Troy Deeney’s penalty reduced the arrears before the break and former Arsenal man Danny Welbeck pulled another back – but, with Aston Villa drawing at West Ham and Bournemouth beating Everton – Watford finished 19th.

    The afternoon could not have started worse for Watford, who conceded a penalty in the opening minute.

    Craig Dawson floored Alexandre Lacazette and, after a lengthy VAR review which also contained an offside check, Aubameyang tucked home the resulting spot-kick.

    To be fair to Watford, they responded well and came close to an equaliser just before the 15-minute mark.

    Ismaila Sarr cut inside from the right and fed Abdoulaye Doucoure, his shot blocked by Rob Holding into the path of Roberto Pereyra, who then drew a smart save out of Emiliano Martinez.

    Deeney then headed straight at Holding as the visitors enjoyed a level of success when pushing forward.

    But it was at the other end where their top-flight status was unravelling, Tierney’s shot deflecting off Will Hughes to wrong-foot Ben Foster and double Arsenal’s lead before the drinks break.

    The third goal looked to have firmly finished off this game as a contest and Watford’s top-flight stay, a throw-in into the visitors’ box allowed to bounce unchallenged before Aubameyang controlled and turned home a fine overhead kick.

    But captain and talisman Deeney at least gave Watford hope of a shock comeback, thrashing home a trademark penalty after David Luiz had tripped Welbeck.

    There was certainly still some residual hope as Adam Masina fired just over, with Welbeck drawing a fine close-range save out of Martinez.

    He would not have a chance soon after though when Welbeck was on hand to steer home Sarr’s low cross and bring Watford to within a goal of Arsenal’s seemingly-unassailable lead.

    The same duo combined minutes later but this time Martinez brilliantly denied Welbeck a second from a clever flick.

    With Watford taking more risks, they were exposing themselves at the back and needed Foster to be at his best to prevent Aubameyang completing his hat-trick from Eddie Nketiah’s pass.

    Watford maintained their threat but could not force an equaliser, which still would not have been enough given Villa’s draw across London at West Ham as Arsenal ultimately finished eighth.
