So we are back on the domestic front again as Arsenal take on Watford at the Emirates. There are a few injuries to contend with but here is the team that I picked earlier…
Chambers Koscielny Mustafi Maitland-Niles
Xhaka Wilshere Ramsey
And here is the official team that Wenger chose to face Watford….
Maitland-Niles, Mustafi, Holding, Kolasinac,
Xhaka, Elneny, Ozil,
Mkhitaryan, Iwobi, Aubameyang.
Arsenal.com are saying that Koscielny and Ramsey are being rested, and Wenger has gone for Holding instead of Chambers at centre-back, but as Chambers suffered from cramp on Thursday it is probably a sensible precaution.
Iwobi and Elneny chosen instead of Ramsey and Wilshere? I wonder if that another precaution or Wilshere’s absence is anything to do with him speaking publicly about refusing to sign his contract?
This team should be more than enough for Arsenal to knock the cojones out of Watford, and I want to see our 1000th EPL goal, and Cech’s 200th clean sheet. It’s about bloody time!
