Arsenal Could Face a Battle at Vicarage Road
The late kick-off in the Premier League sees Arsenal travel to face Watford at Vicarage Road and they are unlikely to have it all their own way. The Gunners have climbed up to fifth in the Premier League table after back-to-back successes against West Brom and Brighton. The North London outfit won both matches by a 2-0 scoreline but this won’t be as straightforward.
Wenger’s men have been priced up as 3/5 favourites by 888sport and many punters will be tempted to add them to their weekend accumulators. They’ve picked up just a single point from their opening three away games although they have visited both Stamford Bridge and Anfield so far.
The Hornets have only been beaten once this season and made it tough for Liverpool here on the opening weekend as the two sides played out an entertaining 3-3 draw. Confidence is high in both camps and it should be another entertaining Premier League encounter. The bookmakers agree with Betfair pricing up Over 2.5 Goals at 8/13.
Arsenal fans will be buoyed by the fact that Watford haven’t won here this season but they are extremely dangerous going forward and the Gunners’ defence will have to be at their miserly best to prevent them getting on the scoresheet.
Wenger’s side are chasing down 4th place Chelsea who also sit on 13 points. The Blues crashed to a 1-0 defeat at home to Manchester City on September 30th but have a much more palatable fixture against Crystal Palace to ease them back into action after the international break. Ladbrokes have priced Antonio Conte’s side at 2/5 for success at Selhurst Park and they’ll be confident of making the short trip home with all three points.
Roy Hodgson’s Palace are yet to pick up a point this season and have failed to find the target in any of their opening seven matches clocking up a goal difference of -17 in the process. The Eagles are already on their second manager of the season but many supporters will point to their difficult run of fixtures which has included heavy defeats to Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City.
