Match Preview: Arsenal v Watford

Match Preview, News, NewsNow


As we attempt to make it seven wins in a row, we welcome Watford to The Emirates this weekend where a win could see us make our way into the top four despite our shaky start.

Watford have picked up a point in their last two games following a blistering start but were knocked out of the League Cup in the week on penalties at the hands of 1961 Division One Champions Tottenham Hotspur. They did however, beat the two-time top flight Champions in the league a few weeks back.

Sead Kolasinac was on the bench against Brentford in the week and could make his return from injury, which Ainsley Maitland-Niles is also said to be back in contention while Laurent Koscielny and Carl Jenkinson remain on the sidelines.

Sokratis should return along with Henrikh Mkhitaryan following knocks, and it is likely Unai Emery will continue with the central midfield partnership of Xhaka and Torreira against the Hornets.

Troy Deeny, with the wide-apart-eyes, may need injections before the game, but he is determined to play, saying it will “…take more than that to stop me playing against Arsenal away…”

COME ON ARSENAL!
