Unai Emery is slowly getting to grips with English football.
The Spaniard suffered two defeats in quick succession at the start of the season, the Gunners have now won six matches in a row.
Watford will be the next team to try and knock Arsenal off their perch, a team who recorded a victory against the North Londoners at Vicarage Road last term.
Here’s how we think Arsenal might line up:
Arsenal Predicted XI: Watford (H)
GK: Bernd Leno
Played against Brentford in the League Cup, and is relishing every chance he gets to assimilate to English football.
RB: Hector Bellerin
The rapid full-back was rested against Brentford, but is expected to be tasked with handling the in-form Roberto Pereyra on Saturday.
Also got the night off on Wednesday, but is undoubtedly a part of Arsenal’s strongest XI.
CB: Shkodran Mustafi
The German centre-half played 90 minutes in the week, but with Laurent Koscielny still sidelined, could be called on again.
LB: Nacho Monreal
Monreal has been superb in the absence of Sead Kolasinac.
DM: Lucas Torreira
The defensive midfielder was brought on as a substitute against Brentford, and could be in line to make his second Arsenal start against the Hornets.
DM: Granit Xhaka
Paired with Torreira, Xhaka has the opportunity to show himself as a supremely capable defensive midfielder.
AM: Mesut Özil
After some initial friction, Özil is steadily getting used to Unai Emery’s style
RW: Henrikh Mkhitaryan
Started against Brentford, but did not play tot
ST: Alexandre Lacazette
The Frenchman is happiest up-front for Arsenal, and bagged a goal against Brentford off the bench on Wednesday.
LW: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Aubameyang is a physical mismatch for nearly anyone who he lines up against, and Kiko Femenia is likely to have his hands full all afternoon.
