Arsenal vs Watford 31st Jan 2017: EPL Cup Preview and Predictions

Arsenal are back in North London this week as they take on Watford in what is a game that the home team will want to win and will know that they have to win if they want to keep up their title fight. Watford on the other hand will also want to get something out of this game since points will come in handy at the end of the season for the Hornets in order to ensure that they don’t end up in a relegation battle come the last few weeks of the season.

Watford have not had the worst season so far but it is safe to say that they are not safe being only 8 points above the relegation zone. They will know that every point is important so I am expecting them to put in a lot of fight but that is not going to result in much in my opinion since they are away from home and they are up against one of the best teams in the league in the form of Arsenal.

Arsenal will know that this should be an easy win for them and to be honest I think that will be the case. This side is one of the best at the moment and I expect a big win to be honest. Furthermore, I think that they should be able to keep a clean sheet so both teams not to score is the best bet that I can see in this game. In addition to that, the over 2.5 goals is also a good bet since I am expecting a 3-0 or 4-0 win to the gunners.  

 

Pick:
Over 2.5 goals
