One of the low points of last season for Arsenal, and there were quite a few of them as we failed yet again to make a decent job of challenging for the Premier League title or the Champions League, was the end of our hopes of making it three FA cup wins in a row.
That FA cup loss at home to Watford in March was an awful performance by the Gunners, but it was also something of a surprise, as we did beat the Hornets comfortably at home and away in the league, with an aggregate score of 7-0over the two matches.
After winning just one point from our first two EPL games of the season so far, we really need that trend to continue when Arsenal arrive at Vicarage Road on Saturday and our England international star Theo Walcott is confident it will, as a Sky Sports report explains.
The speedy forward is taking nothing for granted but he feels that Watford will be an easier team to beat than Liverpool and Leicester City and he thinks that Arsenal will keep improving after the difficult start to the current campaign.
Theo said, “We’ve got a nice run of games now and we’ve got to think about all of the positives.
“Watford is going to be another tough game because every game is this season, so it’s going to be very difficult.
“Each team gets better each year. We want to have a similar sort of performance to when we last played Watford away.
“It doesn’t matter how we play, as long as we get the three points.
“Leicester know how to defend very well and like to put pretty much the whole team behind the ball, so it’s difficult to break them down.
“We had chances to score but sadly we failed to do that.
“We don’t want teams getting away from us [in the title race], but it’s only two games in.”
We certainly do not but the pressure is already on and Arsenal are already playing catch-up. Will that title chase start properly at Watford?
