Arsenal Vs Watford: Can Arsenal Boost Their Morale Ahead of Chelsea FA Cup final By Defeating The Hornets

Preview

Arsenal

Arsenal have endured a very tough campaign having managed to pick just 53 points from possible 111

For the first time in many years, the Gunners won’t end the season among the top seven clubs as they may only occupy the 8th position if they defeat the Hornets.

This also means they have failed to qualify for Champions League competition for four seasons in a row, no thanks to their shocking 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa last week.

Though Sunday’s game is more or less like a dead-rubber affair, the North London club will hope to defeat the Vicarage Road outfit as a way to boost their confidence level ahead of Chelsea’s FA Cup challenge.

Watford

As for the Hornets, the side have performed woefully throughout the season and they are on the verge of being relegated.

They sits in the 18th position and they require nothing less than an outright win to secure their Premier League future.

Just as their upcoming opponents, Watford have a very poor defensive record having conceded 61 goals from 37 league matches played so far.

Players To Watch

Bukayo Saka (Arsenal)

The youngster is no doubt the Gunners best teenager this season after breaking into the first-team squad during Unai Emery reign at the helm of affairs.

With eight goals and 11 assists, the England U19 international is one player who could help his side record a less important victory.

Others players who deserve to be mentioned include Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and David Luiz.

Isamaila Sarr

In what was his first season in England, the Senegalese winger showed glimpse of his potentials throughout the term.

Injuries prevented him from reaching his full potentials with the team, but he still managed to make a difference in some games — especially against their victory over eventual champions Liverpool.

He is one of Watford’s players whose pace and tricks will be too handful for the Gunners defenders.

Other players who deserve to be listed include Troy Deeney who has scored 9 goals in all competitions.

Our Predictions

Mikel Arteta’s men should be able to score more than two goals against the struggling Watford side.

Hence, we tip the North London side to end the season with a massive 3-1 victory on Sunday.
