Holders Arsenal continue their quest for a third successive trophy when they take on fellow Londoners Watford at the Emirates later today in the FA Cup quarter-final.
The Gunners secured their place in the last 8 midweek with a comfortable 4-0 win over Hull in their last 16 replay.
The win, secured through braces from Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud, ended a five game winless run for Arsene Wenger’s side.
That run has seen their Champion League and title hopes suffer major blows with the Gunners trailing Barcelona 2-0 following the last 16 first leg tie in London and also sitting 8 points behind leaders, Leicester in the race for the Premier League.
With doubts over the ability to claw back both deficits, the FA cup offers a real chance to add more silverware to the Arsenal cabinet.
Gooners saw three of their players go off injured midweek although the good news is that defenders Per Mertesacker (head) and Gabriel (muscular) should be passed fit to play although Aaron Ramsey (muscular) may not be risked.
Laurent Koscielny (calf) is almost back to full fitness but Sunday’s game could come too soon while Petr Cech (calf), Santi Cazorla (knee), Jack Wilshere (ankle), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (knee), Tomas Rosicky (thigh) and Carl Jenkinson (knee) are all definitely unavailable to Wenger.
Watford’s injury list is not as significant as Arsenals although defenders Miguel Britos (hamstring), Craig Cathcart (knock) and Joel Ekstrand (fitness) are all doubts. Midfielder Jurado (calf) is also yet to recover from injury and misses out.
Watford have not beaten Arsenal since 1988 with the Gunners winning all 6 meetings since scoring 16 goals and conceding just 5. The 1988 win by the Hornets was a 1-0 success at Highbury with Rick Holden scoring the winner.
Arsenal won 3-0 when they met earlier in the season.
With the Premier League seemingly just out of the grasp of the Gunners for another season it once again looks like the FA Cup will be the only source of silverware for Arsene Wenger’s side as they face an almost impossible two goal deficit in the Champions League against Barcelona.
Predictably, the home win has been heavily backed by punters into a best price of 8/15, and it would be foolish to oppose Arsenal today, considering this is in reality is the only trophy they can now win this season.
Watford will be no push overs however, with the Hornets nicely placed mid table in Premier League, and Quique Sánchez Flores will surely field his strongest side.
Arsenal to sneak this one by the odd goal, we’re on the 2-1 which is available at a price of 8/1.
