Mark Lawrenson is backing Arsenal to ease to a resounding win against Watford at The Emirates on Sunday afternoon.

The Gunners have been on a dismal run of form in the Premier League over the past couple of months to heap pressure on Arsene Wenger.

Indeed, Arsenal have lost four of their last five Premier League games to all but end their hopes of a Champions League spot this term.

Watford were 3-1 winners against Wenger’s men at Vicarage Road in the Premier League back in November.

Unsurprisingly Arsenal have only managed to secure three victories in their 15 away games in the Premier League in the 2017-18 season.

Former Liverpool FC defender Lawrenson is confident Arsenal can end their miserable run of form in the Premier League with a comfortable win over Watford on Sunday.

“Watford are one of 10 teams to beat Arsenal on the road this season but, at the Emirates, things should be different,” Lawrenson told BBC Sport.

“The Gunners will still win games, of course, it is just you always know what is around the corner.

“It seems to be almost every day now that little bit of Arsene Wenger’s legacy as Arsenal manager is eroded – as in the Gunners’ defeat by Brighton at the weekend, for example.”

The Gunners were 2-0 winners against Serie A giants AC Milan in the first leg of their Europa League last-16 clash at the San Siro on Thursday night.

Goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Aaron Ramsey secured a comfortable win over the Italian giants ahead of the return leg at The Emirates next week.

Arsenal signed Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Manchester United midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan in January.
