Arsenal after an eventful transfer window started off their season with two wins against Newcastle United and Burnley before losing to Liverpool in depressing fashion and picking up a point against North London rivals Tottenham Hotspurs.
The North London club now visit a very tricky side in Watford who just fired their manager Javi Garcia and re-appointed former manager Sanchez Flores.
With a new manager in sight, Watford could prove to be a very tricky team to play against however, the team will be without club captain Troy Deeney who enjoys to play against Arsenal a team he supported throughout his boyhood.
For Arsenal, Xhaka, Torreira and Lacazatte could be the players that will be missing in the game against Watford this weekend. They will be however buoyed by the return of young starlet Joe Willock after he put pen to a new contract.
Against Tottenham and Liverpool Unai Emery brought out a team that was lacking in creativity and stability and eventually he was punished for that. He may have to think otherwise tomorrow.
With Torreira and Xhaka injured, one wonders whether this is the time that the Arsenal faithful will finally get to see playmaker Mesut Ozil making runs behind the strikers in the deep hole again or it’s just another for Unai to bench the star player.
Aubameyang who has virtually scored in every game that he has played will look to this game as an opportunity to add to his tally this season and put a chase to run away Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling.
For the Arsenal faithful, anything short of glory at Vicarage road will be just another horrible season that they will start to sense at the end of the season.
This weekend also offers an opportunity for the Gunners’ most expensive player Nicolas Pepe an opportunity to finally score his first goal for the club after coming out with an assist against Tottenham in the north London derby.
