Why Arsenal are super-hot favourites to win at Watford (Form Guide)

After Arsenal’s abysmal January where the Gunners didn’t win one game, and threw away a couple of League points in the home game against Burnley, they went off for their midwinter break in Dubai and came back refreshed and rejuvenated.

Since then they have been slowly but surely closing in on the Top Four with consecutive wins against Wolves, Brentford and another heart stopping win over Wolves.

But now Arsenal can’t rest on their laurels and have to continue collecting the points on the board, starting with this Sunday’s trip to Watford. The Hornets are second bottom in the table and likely one of the faves to go down, which is unsurprising considering they have won just once in the last 15 games, away at Aston Villa.

Their home form is worse. They crazily destroyed Man United 4-1 back in November, and have lost all seven games at Vicarage Road since. Here is their last six home games…

To be fair though, Arsenal may be formidable at the Emirates, but their away form has been erratic on the road, with 5 wins and 5 defeats this season, and one draw. But 3 of those were in our last 3 matches so you could say we have hit some away form…

So, really, this is an absolute must-win game for Arsenal, and the pressure must be on to not be complacent and expect Watford to roll over. Things rarely turn out like that this season as we have all seen lately…

  1. It’s wrong to win games before we play them. The winning mentality should prevail no matter who we play.
    Given that our away record has improved and especially that the odds are high, the players should really be committed as if they were playing Spurs.

  2. Despite being away I guess we are favourites for this one but as Atangana has said that matters little unless we turn up and deliver to the standards that have got us into a good Top 4 position, I believe that we will

    Potentially a different game to the ratty one against them at home that we won despite some spoiling tactics from Ranieri

    It will be interesting to see what Hodgson does against us after getting that nil nil at Old Trafford last time out

  3. Football matches are not played on paper,don’t count your eggs bfor they are hatched….go work for the three points in lads…

  4. Seen it all before when we have been red hot favourites and then ballsed it up. Let’s hope and wait and see.

  5. Watford will not be any pushovers and Arsenal will have to work hard to get a win. Considering the form we are in I expect us to win but we have to play well.
