The final day of the Premier League is here and a lot in on the line. The fights for Champions League football and to avoid relegation are coming down to the wire. Watford are fighting for their Premier League lives. They need to beat Arsenal to be confident of remaining in the league.
While Watford has everything to play for, Arsenal has nothing on the line. Europa League qualification is out of the question. It’s just about trying to end the league season on a high note and keep momentum for the FA Cup final.
Arsenal have a lot of injuries to withstand. Bernd Leno, Gabriel Martinelli, Calum Chambers, Pablo Mari and Shkodran Mustafi are all out with injuries, while Reiss Nelson and Mesut Ozil are doubts, according to Premier Injuries.com.
Watford have issues of their own. Isaac Success, Daryl Janmaat and Gerard Deulofeu are all out, while Etienne Capoue is a doubt, according to PremierInjuries.com.
Arsenal: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Aubameyang is the only reason Arsenal’s season was relevant for as long as it was. His 20 goals kept Arsenal’s season from falling apart for a while. He wasn’t enough to lift Arsenal to the Champions League, but he can win them this match.
Watford: Troy Deeney
Deeney has done his best to save Watford. He’s scored their last three goals, including both in their 2-1 win over Newcastle United. He will need to continue his gargantuan effort to save the Hornets from the drop.
Watford have more reason to care about this game and Arsenal aren’t good enough to stop that. The Hornets may not be able to win this match, but they should be able to get something from it.
Prediction: 1-1 Draw
