There are few surprises really in the line-up for Arsenal’s home game against Watford tonight, and there are very few survivors from the 5-0 win over Southampton at the weekend.
Wenger already told us that he was unlikely to pick Welbeck again as he has just returned from a long lay-off, and the same applies to Theo Walcott, despite the pair scoring five goals between them against the Saints.
Also Hector Bellerin and Oxlade-Chamberlain are also relegated to the bench after being extremely impressive, so perhaps Arsene Wenger is saving all four for the massive game against Chelsea on Saturday…
So here is the official team….
Cech, Gabriel, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal, Coquelin, Ramsey, Iwobi, Ozil, Alexis, Giroud
Here is the Watford starting line-up as well….
Gomes (GK); Cathcart, Kaboul, Prödl, Britos; Behrami; Janmaat, Cleverley, Capoue, Niang; Deeney (c).
Are we all happy with this team? Surely we should win easy whoever we play, but it looks like Wenger is taking no chances at all tonight. Every game is a must-win for us now….
