Premier League: Predicted Arsenal XI vs Watford

North London giants Arsenal have the opportunity to close the gap on the leading teams in the Premier League when they make the short trip to face Watford at the Vicarage Road on Sunday evening.

The meeting between Watford and Arsenal is one of the remaining three week 5 games in the Premier League.

Arsenal started the weekend in fifth position with seven points from their first four games but results from Saturday’s set of matches has seen them drop to seventh spot on the table.

A win over Watford will take Arsenal to third spot on the table and a 10-goal win will take them above Premier League champions Manchester City on the table.

For Watford, they are the bottom team in the Premier League table after just one point from the first four games.

The poor start to the season led to the dismissal of Spanish tactician Javi Gracias from his job as the Watford boss and he has since been replaced by former club manager Quique Sanchez Flores who will face the first game of his second spell at the club against Arsenal later on Sunday.

Ahead of the game against Watford, Arsenal boss Unai Emery might recall Dani Ceballos for the game in place of Lucas Torreira from the starting XI for last game at home to North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Unai Emery will certainly make an enforced change due to the injury to Alexandre Lacazette.

Arsenal XI vs Watford: Bernd Leno; Ainsley Maitland-Niles, David Luiz, Sokratis Papasthathopoulos, Sead Kolasinac; Granit Xhaka, Dani Ceballos, Matteo Guendouzi; Reiss Nelson, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Nicholas Pepe.
