Arsenal vs Watford: TV channel, live stream, team news & prediction

Arsenal welcome Watford to the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League this weekend as they go in search of their fourth successive victory in all competitions.

Watford, meanwhile, are struggling for consistency under Claudio Ranieri, although they will take heart from their previous away outing in the Premier League when they ran out 5-2 winners at Goodison Park.

Arsenal hold the advantage in the head-to-head column between these two sides, having recorded 18 victories.

Recent history also points to a Gunners victory, with Watford having lost four out of their last five meetings with Arsenal in the Premier League. That included a 3-2 defeat which condemned the club to relegation in 2019/20.

Watford are likely to sit deep and spring quickly on the counter-attack against Arsenal this weekend.

Ranieri's side showed their threat in transitional moments in their 5-2 away win over Everton last month, but they face a more assured Gunners side who are more capable at controlling a game than the Toffees.

Prediction: Arsenal 2-0 Watford
