Having benefitted from the prolific Odion Ighalo and Troy Deeney strike partnership in his previous spell in charge, Quique Sanchez Flores will need to look elsewhere for firepower when Watford take on Arsenal on Sunday.

The duo scored over 30 goals between them in the 2015/16 season, although with Ighalo now departed and Deeney still recovering from surgery, the Hornets have only struck twice in two Premier League games so far this campaign.

Responsible for one of those two goals, Andre Grey is their 8.50 favourite with Sportsbet to score the first goal of the Sanchez Flores era, or priced at 3.10 to strike anytime.

His side’s top scorer with 10 league goals last season, Gerard Deulofeu is priced at 3.30 to get off the mark for the new campaign in high profile circumstances.

Released by Arsenal in the summer after five seasons at the club, Danny Welbeck can be backed at 3.25 to come back to haunt his former side with a first goal for his new team.

There is no shortage of attacking options at the other end of the pitch, where Premier League Golden Boot winner Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leads a dangerous front three for Unai Emery’s outfit.

The Gabon international has been involved in more Premier League goals than anyone but Mohamed Salah since his debut in February 2018, and he looks a strong 4.50 bet to open the scoring for his second successive visit to Vicarage Road – as well as 1.83 anytime odds.

On target in two of his three league matches so far this campaign, Alexandre Lacazette is a 2.10 shot to extend that record with another goal here.

Alternatively, record signing Nicolas Pepe is available at 2.30 to open his account for the Gunners, having impressed so far without finding the net.
