Arsenal will aim to return to winning ways after the international break when they face out of form Watford at Vicarage Road on Sunday afternoon.
After winning their first two league games, the Gunners lost to Liverpool and then manage to scrap a comeback draw against arch-rivals Tottenham.
Now, Unai Emery’s men should look to win games and gain the momentum that is going to help them in pursuit for a top four finish.
They will face a Watford side who haven’t yet won a game and have already sacked former manager Javi Gracia. Whether the new and returning manager in Quique Sanchez Flores will be able to make an instant impact – we’ll wait and see!
In terms of team news for Arsenal, Hector Bellerin, Kieran Tierney and Konstantinos Mavropanos are a bit away from first-team training. Alexandre Lacazette is ruled out with an ankle injury. Lucas Torreira and Granit Xhaka are doubts as well.
Here’s how we think Emery may line his team up for the game against the Hornets:
GK - Bernd Leno
The Germany international is Arsenal’s number one and should be in goal against Watford.
RB - Ainsley Maitland-Niles
In continued absence of Bellerin, Maitland-Niles should continue to deputise at right-back.
CB - Sokratis
The Greece international is probably one of the first names on the team sheet. That should be the case on Sunday.
CB - David Luiz
The new signing has struggled in the last two games. He is still anticipated to keep his place in the team.
LB - Sead Kolasinac
Amidst Tierney’s absence, Kolasinac is the designated left-back in this team.
CM - Matteo Guendouzi
With Xhaka and Torreira doubts for this game, Guendouzi could be the leader of Arsenal’s midfield against Watford.
CM - Joe Willock
The youngster has done well so far. He should get another opportunity amidst injuries in midfield.
RW - Nicolas Pepe
Pepe was an injury doubt in the international break. He should be fit to start on Sunday.
AM - Dani Ceballos
Ceballos could be one player who would be required in games like when the opponents are prepared to sit deep and soak the pressure. The Spaniard’s quality on the ball would be handy.
LW - Reiss Nelson
Nelson might get another opportunity to shine in a Premier League game on Sunday. He needs to start grabbing these chances though.
ST - Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
With Lacazette out for this game, Aubameyang is certain to lead the line against Watford.
