Arsenal quickly rebounded from a poor display in a 1-0 loss to Everton in the previous round of Premier League. They clinched a huge 2-0 win over Italian giants Napoli to gain big advantage ahead of the reverse fixture of their Europa League quarter-final tie at Stadio San Paolo in Naples.
The Gunners are back to domestic affairs tonight when they travel to Vicarage Road Stadium to take on FA Cup finalists Watford in one of the most exciting ties of the Matchday.
Unai Emery’s men dropped down to 6th place in the Premier League standings after the mentioned loss to Everton last week at Goodison. They are 3 points below fourth-placed Chelsea FC and one behind Manchester United in 5th, but have a game in hand to the Blues with a more goal difference.
Nonetheless, with just six games left to play, a win here is a must for Arsenal. Can they build on the Thursday’s win over Napoli and grab another success here at Vicarage Road Stadium?
Head to head
Arsenal lead the head to head tie by just one win coming into 25th meeting with the Hornets.
The Gunners won last two clashes against Watford without conceding a single goal along the way, but both of these victories came at Emirates Stadium.
Each of last two H2H affairs at Vicarage Road Stadium offered goals at both ends.
