Into The Hornets' nest
Arsenal lost their last game to Watford, at the Emirates, and that was before Marco Silva came in and turned them into a much improved side overnight.
The evening kick-off sees Arsenal facing the underdogs nobody wants right now - Watford. The Hornets should never be a best price of 9/2 (Bet365) to take the points here.
The hosts are only a point behind the Gunners after seven matches having only lost to Manchester City so far (W3 D3).
This fixture fits the profile of Arsenal’s trip to Stoke earlier in the season, which they lost 1-0. Their recent victories over Bournemouth, West Brom and Brighton were all at home, and should be expected.
This task will be much tougher for Wenger who knows his boys are winless on the road in the top flight.
To make matters worse, Sanchez has just come back from a 15,000 mile trip to get eliminated from the World Cup while Mustafi is out after getting injured playing for Germany.
