Premier League predictions: Aston Villa vs Arsenal, Watford vs Man City results predicted | Football | Sport

The penultimate round of Premier League fixtures are taking place this week, with the final round to be played out on Sunday. Tuesday’s action sees Watford host Manchester City, while Arsenal travel to Aston Villa.

Interim manager Hayden Mullins takes charge of the Hornets following Nigel Pearson’s dismissal.

Pearson was sacked after the 3-1 defeat at West Ham that left the club three points above the relegation zone ahead of their final two games.

“When you work in football, a lot of things happen … We can’t let it dissuade us from our focus,” Mullins said ahead of City’s visit.

“The club have made decisions, we have to be professional enough to deal with it. We are a good team, a good unit and squad. We have shown since December we can get results. We’re confident in what we are trying to do.

“I really enjoyed working with Nigel Pearson. I learned a lot and it was a good experience for me.”

Aston Villa are in 18th place heading into the head into the final two games of the season.

Their relegation fate could be sealed tonight if Watford pick up a point in the early kick-off against City and then they do not beat Arsenal.

“We know what we have to go and achieve,” said Villa boss Dean Smith.

“If we win both of them we have a chance of catching West Ham and Brighton, if we win one of them we have a chance of catching Watford but it depends on other results as well.
