The game against Watford on Monday night presents a very tricky dilemma for Unai Emery, he cannot pick a weakened team because points are needed desperately to maintain our push for a top-four finish but at the same time he cannot put out his full strength side knowing that we face Napoli just three days later.
I think we can all agree that it is a no brainer that Leno will be back in goal and that the defence basically picks itself with Sokratis being the only one to miss out due to suspension.
The real tricky area is midfield and forward line.
I would be very surprised if the manager does not keep with Kolasinac and Maitland Niles on the flanks and I suspect that Emery will rest Ramsey, he will want to keep him in reserve and fresh for the Napoli game and it would not surprise me if he also rested Torreira because he will definitely be needed in Italy and so a return of the much-maligned Elneny and Guendouzi partnership could be on the cards.
I also fully expect Ozil to be on the bench for the Watford game and I would have expected that regardless of the upcoming Napoli match, I simply do not think Emery trusts Ozil against a team like Watford which means that he will probably bring in Henrikh Mkhitaryan as his direct replacement.
I do not see Emery going with two forwards in this one either and out of Lacazette and Aubameyang, I can see him going with the Gabon international this time around.
Finally, that means there is likely to be a spot for Iwobi as well.
So, this is my predicted line up against Watford.
Now, I could easily be wrong, Emery may well chance Ramsey and Torreira, he may bring back Xhaka and even finally find a spot of Suarez, but for me, based on what Emery has done before, I am happy with what I have predicted.
