The Gunners will be aiming to avoid another away defeat as they look to keep their hopes of securing Champions League football alive

Arsenal have the opportunity to climb back into the top four in the Premier League on Monday when they take on Watford at Vicarage Road.

Unai Emery's side suffered a blow in their hunt for a Champions League finish in the division last week by losing to Everton, but they responded to that defeat with a convincing victory over Napoli in the Europa League quarter-final first leg.

The Gunners' away form has been abysmal this season and they have won just twice on the road in their last 10 attempts - against Blackpool in the FA Cup and Huddersfield in the league - with surprising losses coming against the likes of West Ham, BATE and Rennes.

While Arsenal have already beaten Watford this season - a 2-0 win at home last September - the Hornets come into the match on a high after booking their place in the FA Cup final and Javi Gracia will be determined to build on that achievement.

Match Preview


Arsenal celebrate 2018-19

Of Arsenal's seven Premier League losses this season six have come at home and with four more away games left in their season run-in the Gunners are aware they need to improve.

Defeat against Everton at Goodison Park last weekend was a blow in the chase for a Champions League finish, but they can retake their place in the top four by beating Watford on Monday.

"If we want to play in the Champions League then we need to fix up straight away on our away form," Gunners forward Alex Iwobi said ahead of the game against Watford.

"We know how vital these four away games will be and we're going to put in our all to try and get back into the Champions League again."

Arsenal lost 2-1 against Watford at Vicarage Road last season, a result which Hornets striker Troy Deeney declared was an example of the north London outfit's lack of 'cojones'.

However, despite their poor away form, having already taken three points at their expense this season, Emery's men will be confident they can repeat the feat.
