Confirmed Arsenal team to take on Watford in today’s PL encounter

The teams are out for today’s Premier League clash at Vicarage Road, where Arsenal will take on Watford.

The Gunners come into the tie on the back of three straight wins, and with the potential to climb into fourth place in the division. West Ham lost to Liverpool yesterday evening to leave the door wide open, while Manchester United would need to beat Man City at the Etihad later on to reclaim fourth should we manage to claim all three points today.

We will not be taking our opponents lightly today however, despite being the better side on paper, with Roy Hodgson having improved their form since coming in to replace Claudio Ranieri, and with his players fighting to get out of the relegation zone.

With that in mind, there is no shocks from our starting line-up with an unchanged XI from the one which took on Wolves 10 days ago, as predicted in today’s preview.

Should this team be able to carve out a routine victory this afternoon?

  1. Good LINEUP as expected, we should have more than enough for Watford. COYG…

  3. Am nervous. I think today win is so important.
    3games in hand isn’t same as points but a win will truely put us in top 4 and if Utd win, we are still a contender.
    I wish no stupid red card or naive moment, I wish the boys all the best
    COYG

  4. Winning is all that matters today.i don’t care how we win, just get d 3 points…..Good luck lads

  5. Last season it was difficult to predict the lineup, it’s always change every 3-5games, but now, almost every fans knows 90% of the players starting. Such stability is what we need

  6. Shame EDR is unfit, but Martinelli is due a big performance. Pepe has earned a start but where could he play? He could still be our matchwinner late on. C’mon Laca….you owe us some goals…..give us a brace today.

  7. You wouldn’t have thought that there is also a London Derby on Sky Sports. Manure this $hity that…😡

      1. Technically it isn’t but Watford is right next to North London so I don’t think what you said is totally absurd.

  8. Pepe should’ve been rewarded with a starting position because he produced a goal against Wolves, but the coaches and the medical staffs surely know better than I do. Too bad Smith-Rowe is still unfit, but I think Pepe and Nketiah could be super-subs again

  9. Utd are in the 4th place temporarily, chelsea should be the taget not man u. UTG Up the gunners.

  10. Hopefully for ESR he gets through Covid quickly and without too much illness . He is young after all. It’s a nasty little blighter as I can recently testify. Still testing positive after 10 days

    1. I have a telegram channel where you can livestream it.
      If admin will allow me post it here, I will.
      Or better still, download Live football from Google play store.
      More better than Hesgoal honestly. No annoying ads

  11. lol some bad acting there, goes down like 5 seconds later hahaha idiot.

    And idiot ref bought it

  12. We are looking forward to goals. Arteta please circumvent gambling is substituting those not adding value. Pepe the wonderboy is here.

  13. Watch out for watford trying to hurt saka/Odeggard as they cant handle them. Will the ref do his job ?

  14. Sports history is littered with players who were far more effective as an impact sub. Pepe could well be such a player. He isn’t an ideal fit in our tactical set up for various reasons. Playing 20-30 mins at the end of a game by no means says either that he isn’t as important as the starters or that he is not critical to our success. We need to stop assuming that you are only a sub if the manager doesnt rate you. Same for ESR.

      1. He was woeful … your endless defence of him beggars football belief … nearly cost us 3 points .. hopefully we can get something for him in the summer

        1. I am beginning to think he(Xhaka) had a bet on for Arsenal to concede the second goal. So many easy passes given back to the opponent in dangerous positions by him was unreal, don’t go on my comment and have a look back at the match and you’ll find he had at least 6-7 of those kind of passes. Their second goal was a result of his cross field pass in the midfield.

  15. We are backing off, backing off while defending.
    Easy for Watford players to run onto to players

  16. HALF TIME: MOSTLY THE SAKA AND ODEGAARD SHOW, I’D SAY! These two are way out in front of all our other players.

    MO reminds me so much of Rosicky, with his trademark quick passing, mobility and change of play.

    1. Very good game so far. Odegaard and saka are playing very good football. Xhaka still as slow as ever. This pattern doesn’t suit him

    1. Indeed at 3-1 it became the let’s make lacazette score where the passer could have easily shot at goal.

  17. This has been a very mixed performance as far as I’m concerned.
    Fantastic goals masking a less than impressive afternoon. Watford are not great but neither are we

  18. Lucky win
    Watford tried hard but we made heavy weather of it. Odegaard was superb and and Saka too. Some dodgy defensive work and not clinical enough

  19. Well I enjoyed that game, bit to open for me, but well deserved, I’ve got to say why did xhaka do a cross field pass ?..
    Just why try a millionaire pass??

  20. Long may the mixed performances continue provided we get the 3 points. Great away win at Vicarage Road boys! The last few minutes was a bit nervy but with 3 points in the bag what can I complain about. Now I can enjoy the Manchester derby. Rooting for City to win.

    Watched City’s 1-0 win over Brentford and it was also nervy with City players resorting to diving and time-wasting tactics. Sometimes, like today you just have to win ugly.

    1. For me man of the match again, he could be very soon as good as Cesc, odegarrd more mobile in build up play, but cesc more of a dictator of play sort of player…..
