Home Match Day Arsenal v Watford: Team News and Predicted Line up

Arsenal v Watford: Team News and Predicted Line up


Arsenal face Watford at home this weekend, with a squad likely to be similar to the one that won against Everton.

First choice keeper Petr Cech remains doubtful for this match, but has a slight chance of making it to the bench. Regardless, it is clear that the Czech international will sit this one out.

Central midfielders Aaron Ramsey and Mathieu Flamini will too miss this game and are likely to return for next week. Alex Oxlade Chamberlain, if sources are to be believed, is likely to return by the 20th of April, while Santi Cazorla, Tomas Rosicky and Jack Wilshere will be back only towards the end of the month.

In form striker Danny Welbeck is likely to start this game up front, while the team’s latest wonder kid Alex Iwobi may be handed a second start by Arsene Wenger after his  impressive performance against Everton.

Newly recruited Egyptian international Mohamed Elneny is set to partner Francis Coquelin in midfield, while David Ospina will resume his goalkeeping duties  for this one.

All in all, it is likely that the same starting 11 that played and won against Everton will play today.

Visitors Watford do not seem to have any fresh injuries, although central defender Sebastian Prodl and midfielder Behrami may miss out due to illness, and are at the moment doubtful starters for this one.

Predicted Line up for Arsenal:

Ospina, Bellerin, Gabriel, Koscielny, Monreal, Elneny, Coquelin, Sanchez, Ozil, Iwobi,Welbeck

Subs From:

Cech, Macey, Gibbs, Chambers, Mertesacker,Reine-Adelaide, Campbell Walcott, Giroud
