“I Do not Like Mondays” is not only a song of the “Boomtown Rats”, but it was in the Premier League so far the motto of Watford (10th place, 46 points). Of the 15 Monday matches only two were won (2-5-8). In April 2007, there was a 4-2 draw against Portsmouth and a 4-1 win over Chelsea in February 2018. At Watford vs Arsenal, our tip is a Hornets success, even though Arsenal (fifth, 63 points) has won seven of the last eight Premier League games on Monday and lost only to Crystal Palace in April 2017. “I do not like away games” is not a song title, but currently pretty well describes the season of the Gunners. Home a power and currently probably one of the best home teams in Europe. But away Arsenal could gamble the Champions League participation. Last week there was a 0: 1 at Everton.
Watford vs Arsenal Today’s Betting Tips
A game that Arsenal could well have lost with three or four goals difference and a game in which the replaced Mesut Özil threw his track jacket towards coach Unai Emery. Whether Özil is a candidate for the performance on Monday night at Vicarage Road, Emery will have to think carefully. If Saturday and Sunday are unfavorable to the Gunners, Arsenal could only find themselves sixth on the day before kick-off. An away win in Watford is therefore actually mandatory. At Watford vs Arsenal, however, our prediction looks like a home win for the black and yellow striped Hornets.
Watford – Statistics & Current Form
Last Sunday was a historic day for everyone who cares about Watford Football Club. The Hornets reached the finals in the FA Cup only for the second time after 1984. Even a 2-0 deficit against the Wolverhampton Wanderers Watford could not pinch. Troy Deeney & Co. turned the game and eventually won 3-2 after extra time. Especially captain Deeney was in a very emotional interview after the game to note how much this victory meant to him. In the Premier League Watford is still in the race for the seventh place in the table, but his right to the Europa League qualification Watford would not really be happy. Because that would mean Manchester City wins the FA Cup final. Watford has already scored 19 competitive matches this season, most in a Premier League season since 1986/87 (then 23). At home Vicarage Road, Watford have been unbeaten in five Premier League games, winning the last three in series (two draws).
The momentum currently speaks for the Hornets, yet Watford is against Arsenal, according to odds bookmakers only outsiders. The last four home wins in a row in a Premier League season were for Watford in December 1986. If we are right at Watford vs Arsenal with our prediction, the Hornets draw this record. Because at Watford vs Arsenal our tip is: home win. The goals for this could be achieved by mentality monster Troy Deeney, who has already scored nine times in this Premier League season. Deeney was better only in the 2016/17 season (ten goals) and 2015/16 (13 hits). Deeney could further extend his legendary status and become the third player in club history to score at least ten times in three different first division seasons. Previously, Luther Blissett (thrice) and John Barnes (four times) did it. Gerard Deulofeu, who turned on Wolverhampton after being substituted, was replaced limping last week. His use is questionable. Ben Foster returns for goalkeeper Gomes.

Arsenal – Statistics & Current Form
There are a lot of positives in the first season under Arsenal new coach Unai Emery. Already, the Spaniard draw the point yield of the previous season. At home, the Gunners are a power and won the recent ten home games in series. In the calendar year of 2019 Arsenal scored the fourth-most counters (25) and in the Europa League on Thursday evening the equally important as heavy home game against Napoli could be won 2-0. This leaves Europe League expert Emery (three titles in a row with Sevilla) the back door to the Champions League further open. Before the season, probably few fans would have expected the premier class participation in the first year, but after Arsenal meanwhile had it in their own hands, the missing would be a disappointment.

Only Patrick Vieira (1996/97) and Shkodran Mustafi (2016/17) have seen more yellow cards than the Greek (both eleven).
