After back-to-back wins against Liverpool and Manchester City, Arsenal were brought back down after a 1-0 defeat at Aston Villa last time out means they are unable to finish in a Europa League qualifying spot.
Mikel Arteta’s side begin the weekend 10th in the table, but could finish 8th if other results go their way. They are unable to finish lower than 10th, even if they lose on Sunday.
Arsenal have won nine and drawn six of their 18 league matches at the Emirates this season. The Gunners are unbeaten in their last eight league games at home, including last week’s 2-1 win over champions Liverpool.
Watford’s 4-0 defeat at home to Man City on Tuesday means they head into the final weekend inside the relegation zone. Watford and Aston Villa are tied on 34 points, but Villa have a better goal difference of one goal.
Watford could even lose on Sunday and stay up, as long as Villa lose by 2 more goals than Watford. They have the second-worst away record in the division, with just two wins and four draws on the road.
Arsenal and Watford have met 13 times previous in the Premier League. The Gunners have won on 10 occasions and lost twice.
Watford held Arsenal to a 2-2 draw at Vicarage Road in the reverse fixture in September 2019. A first-half brace from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had Arsenal 2-0 up and cruising. Watford fought back in the second half with two goals of their own from Tom Cleverley and Roberto Pereyra.
