The Gunners are the more talented team

The Gunners are the more talented team, but Watford has shown the ability to play up to their opponent and do so again here for a draw.



Storylines

Watford: This club would love nothing more than to jump back into seventh place behind Arsenal with a victory. There are six spots near mid-table where teams are separated by just six points, so there is a chance Watford could finish in the top half or the bottom half. Based on the remaining schedule, which includes Southampton and Huddersfield, they should feel good about their chances of finishing in the top 10.

Arsenal: The Gunners have to look at this match as an important one to win, though a draw won’t be the end of the world. But considering Watford has lost three of five and shown inconsistency in defense, Arsenal should feel confident about creating enough chances needed to win.
