If Arsenal is to beat Watford today they will need certain players to step up to the plate, players that can make a difference, especially if the game gets bogged down in physicality.
Arsenal has players that can open up defences and change the game and it is those players that can make all the difference today.
There is no guarantee Unai Emery will pick the Spaniard but it would be a surprise if he did not, he has the vision and creativity to carve Watford open and anyone that saw him in action for Spain in the international break will know full well the capabilities he has at splitting defences wide open.
The young winger is still finding his feet but it cannot be long now before we see his brilliance, he has shown glimpses of what he can do and it is just a matter of time before he puts a team to the sword. He has not been 100% fit but he has had a good break and should be fresh and a lot closer to full fitness. Today could be the day we see the true Nicolas Pepe in action.
Just like Ceballos, there is no guarantee he will start but I am confident he will come in as the replacement for Alexandre Lacazette and I have high hopes for the England U21 star, he is quick and creative, he is full of confidence and of the three Arsenal forwards he is the one that Watford will probably underestimate. I can see the 19-year-old putting in a big performance today.
There are others that pose huge dangers, Aubameyang as a classic example but to some extent, that is expected from him and he will need the service from Nelson, Pepe and Ceballos to make a difference and that is why it is the service providers that I see making the difference today.
