Arsenal travel to an in-form Watford side on Saturday, as Premier League service resumes this weekend.
Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger was complimentary about his side’s opponents and Watford boss, Marco Silva.
Speaking at his press conference yesterday he said: ‘Watford are a strong side, well balanced and a tough opposition for everybody. Marco Silva has impressed, he did good work at Hull and he has made a good start at Watford.’
However, the press conference was dominated by the futures of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, with Wenger admitting that the duo could be sold in the January transfer window.
Wenger will be hoping to finally unleash his strike trio of Ozil, Sanchez and Alexandre Lacazette – however, that depends on the fitness of the former – and Sanchez’s morale, after Chile failed to qualify for the World Cup.
Watford have been in great form – picking up four points from away trips to West Brom and Swansea.
When is Watford vs Arsenal?
Watford host Arsenal at Vicarage road on Saturday 14 October with kick-off at 5.30pm.
Which TV channel can I watch it on?
The game will be shown live on BT Sport from 5.30pm.
What is the team news?
Arsenal will have trio Mesut Ozil, Danny Welbeck and Francis Coquelin back from injury.
However, they will have defensive problems as they are still without Calum Chambers and Shkodran Mustafi, who picked up a hamstring injury playing for Germany.
Craig Cathcart could feature for the Hornets since the 0-0 draw with Brighton.
Nathaniel Chalobah, Younes Kaboul and Seb Prodl are still recovering from various injuries.
