London derby match, Watford vs Arsenal will be taking place tomorrow at Vicarage Road. The match will kick off at 15:00 GMT +1. Both sides will enter this match with the need of taking some points from this encounter. Whilst for Watford a draw might be enough, Arsenal need to win following their very slow start to the season. In fact both Watford and Arsenal have a point after playing their first two matches.
Watford have started the season on a promising note although they only managed one point from their first two matches. In their first match of the season they drew away from home against highly rated Southampton whilst in their second match they narrowly lost against Chelsea in the dying minutes. Watford began this season on a high note following their mid-table positioning last season. New manager, Walter Mazzarri, also brought some renewed excitement to the club. They have recently signed Argentina international, Roberto Pereyra, from Italian Champions Juventus that has brought further excitement and experience to the side.
Arsenal had a difficult start to the season as they faced Liverpool and last seasons champions, Leicester. That said, they still had a disappointing start to the season as they lost against Liverpool in an encounter in which they conceded four goals and they drew against Leicester. Tomorrow they are expected to bounce back with a convincing win against Arsenal. It won’t be an easy feat for them as Watford have proofed to be a resilient team that does not concede goals easily.
Although tomorrow’s match presents two sides with different levels of quality, we believe that the home factor and Watford’s resilience will lead to the match being a balance one. Watford have also proofed to have the talent to attack and score especially with the form Etienne Capoue is currently in. Roberto Pereyra will also proof to be an indispensable addition to the team. Taking everything into consideration we believe that tomorrow we may expect a surprise result with the match ending level.
