Premier League Previews | Wednesday

Comments

There are two Premier League games overnight, both with major implications for survival in the top flight.

The first game features Watford, just three points clear of the relegation zone, playing Manchester City, who are coming off an F.A. Cup semi-final loss to Arsenal.

Watford sensationally sacked manager Nigel Pearson two days ago, and while a win for interim boss Hayden Mullins won’t guarantee safety for the Hornets, it puts them in a great position.

The second game is Aston Villa – in real relegation strife – against Arsenal. Villa have a terrible record against the Gunners and while a loss won’t necessarily relegate the Birmingham side, it will make survival all but impossible.
