Arsenal will be looking to make it back-to-back wins this evening when they travel to Vicarage Road to face Javi Gracia’s Watford.
The Gunners have plenty of reason to be confident having dispatched Napoli with ease in the Europa League last Thursday.
But Unai Emery will not be taking Watford lightly having seen Arsenal just scrape by them when the teams met in September.
Emery will be determined for Arsenal to get one over on Watford again as they seek to return to the Premier League’s top four.
However, he will be without five first-team stars due to a combination of suspension and injuries.
Sokratis Papastathopoulos is set to serve the first of a two-match ban having received 10 top-flight bookings this season.
Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding and Danny Welbeck, meanwhile, are definitely out due to long-term injuries.
