Arsenal news: Game of Thrones’ UK start time gives fans a dilemma about whether to watch Watford or Westeros

Selection headache

The Gunners play in the Premier League at 8pm, with the hit HBO show starting an hour later…

Game of Thrones or Watford vs Arsenal?

You wouldn’t think it would be a difficult choice for Gooners to make, but apparently it is.

Arsenal are not great on the road, so will those not in the away end at Vicarage Road skip the game and watch the new series of Game of Thrones instead?

Some are wondering whether or not to watch the club take on Watford, as the first episode of the hugely popular television series returns to our screens – at least it does for those who decided against staying up until 2am to watch it.

However, the Stark reality for Gooners is that some cannot bear to watch them away from the Emirates given they have won just five times and are also yet to keep a clean sheet on the road this season.

In fact, Arsenal have won only two of their last 12 away matches in all competitions (D3, L7).

Here’s what some have been saying about the television clash on Twitter and whether they are more interested in Watford or Westeros.
