Watford vs Arsenal (By: Isaiah)
Watford has secured playing in the FA Cup finals last weekend by defeating Wolves 3:2 after the extra-time played. It was an extremely hard fought game during which they created less than the opponents who might feel unsatisfied with the final score. The side is still in the contention for the seventh position, being now just a point behind the Foxes.
Arsenal scored quickly two goals at home against Napoli to secure important 2:0 lead in the first leg. They have created even more, against the guests who had more of the possession but were clueless with the ball movement.
The Gunners can still reach the Champions League exit too, being just three points below the fourth Chelsea.
Left-back Holebas (25/3) is injured for the hosts, same as midfielders Quina (8/1) and Cleverly (12/1). Doubtful are forwards Success (25/1) and Deulofeu (25/7).
The Gunners miss suspended central back Sokratis (22/0), injured are right back Bellerin (19/0), offensive Welbeck (8/1) and defender Holding (10/0). Midfielder Xhaka (25/4) is still doubtful.
Arsenal did a very good job in the first leg against Napoli, but this match also remains very important for them. Their momentum is just fine and they should be able to exploit defensive gaps Watford surely has. Betting on Arsenal away isn't an easy call, however with the way Watford defends, this is one of the really good chances for the Gunners for an away victory.
