Arsenal will go head-to-head with Watford on Saturday in their third Premier League game of the campaign, with the Gunners looking for nothing other than a win.
Arséne Wenger’s side managed to nick only a point from their first two games, with the Gunners sufferring defeat against Liverpool and playing out a goalless draw against reigning champions Leicester City. Therefore, earning three points against at Vicarage Road is paramount and Wenger and his boys will certainly be up for it.
The 66-year old Frenchman will want to field a strong team against The Hornets who made life difficult for Chelsea last week before The Blues eventually secured three points.
Shkodran Mustafi is expected to complete his medicals in London today and the Valencia defender is expected to go straight into the team to partner Laurent Koscielny in Arsenal’s rearguard.
Wenger will want to field Giroud from the start, as he aims to lead his side to victory against Watford. Meanwhile, Lucas Perez – who is also expected to complete his transfer from Deportivo La Coruna today – is likely to be on the Arsenal bench.
Hence, below is how we believe The Gunners will line up with new boys.
