Premier League: All You Need To Know About Watford vs Arsenal Game
Watford and Arsenal are out of their comfort zones. Marco Silva’s side have not won yet at home and Arsène Wenger’s have not won away from the Emirates.
Kick-off: Saturday, 5:30 PM in UK and 10:00 PM in India
Venue: Vicarage Road
Live: BT Sport 1,Stars Sports Select SD1 and HD1, and NBC Sports Network
Referee: Neil Swarbrick
Arsenal: Arsene Wenger will assess Alexis Sanchez’s physical and mental condition ahead of the match. Sanchez only arrived back in London on Thursday after missing out on World Cup qualification with Chile but Mesut Ozil and Danny Welbeck are available, having overcome knee and groin injuries respectively, while Laurent Koscielny is not back in full training and Shkodran Mustafi likely to miss an extended period with a suspected thigh tear.
Watford: Watford will be without their £5.5m summer signing Nathaniel Chalobah. The England international is due to have knee surgery after injuring himself during training. Andre Carrillo, the winger on a season-long loan from Benfica, could feature despite playing in Peru’s 1-1 World Cup qualifier against Colombia on Wednesday night. But Sebastian Prodl, who has not played since he suffered an injury on international duty for Austria in September, is again a doubt, while Younes Kaboul remains sidelined.
Likely Line Up:
Watford starting XI: Gomes, Femenia, Mariappe, Kabasele, Holebas, Doucoure, Capoue, Carrillo, Cleverley, Richarlison, Deeney
Arsenal starting XI: Cech, Holding, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Bellerin, Xhaka, Ramsey, Monreal, Iwobi, Sanchez, Lacazette
