Watford v Arsenal Tips: Auba to swat Hornets in 15/2 Same Game Multi

Watford have sent another manager packing and brought back a familiar face, but our traders think it won't make much difference on Sunday

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang


Watford have successfully maintained their mid-table Premier League status with a rotating cast of Premier League managers and will attempt to do so again this season with Quique Sanchez Flores replacing Javi Gracia.

I feel this might be quite a stiff task as Gracia did a superb job last season and this looks a team that will struggle for goals especially with captain Troy Deeney absent through injury.

Of their two striking options, Gearard Delofeu is a talented but an infuriatingly inconsistent performer and Andre Gray is not a Premier League quality forward. Added to that, Watford have an ageing defence and will miss the injured Craig Cathcart against Arsenal.

Given all of that, and Arsenal’s improvement this season, Evens is a very backable price for Unai Emery’s side.

In the card markets, Jose Holebas at 17/10 looks well worth a bet. The 35-year-old has been cautioned 14 times in his last 31 Premier League matches and will struggle for pace against Arsenal’s wide players like Pierre Emerick Aubamaeyang and Nicolas Pepe.

Lastly Aubameyang has started the season in red-hot form and is worth backing to score anytime at 10/11. He’s scored in the three of the first four league games and tends to rack up the goals against the lower-tier Premier League opposition while struggling against big six sides.

I’m expecting that trend to continue on Sunday.

A Same Game Multi on these three selections pays out at over 15/2
