The final match on Saturday in the Premier League is at Vicarage Road.

 Watford have been one of the surprise packages in the league so far.

The Hornets, who salvaged a late 2-2 draw at West Brom last time out. They are eighth in the top flight.

As for Arsenal, they are up to fifth in the league after early struggles in the season.

Since losing back to back games against Stoke and Liverpool, not only have Arsenal gone on an unbeaten run, they’ve not conceded a goal in those games.

Arsene Wenger’s six injuries

But Arsenal have selection problems ahead of their trip to Watford.

On Sunday night, Shkodran Mustafi became the latest high profile injury at the Emirates Stadium.

Mustafi was forced out of Germany’s match Azerbaijan with a thigh strain, and he seems unlikely to play against Watford.

Staying with Arsenal’s defence, Laurent Koscielny is also a major doubt this weekend. The centre-half had to withdraw from France’s international squad due to his ongoing Achilles problems.

And Calum Chambers is also an injury doubt. The English defender has a thigh problem.

Moving further up the pitch, Danny Welbeck is sidelined with a groin injury, while Mesut Ozil has a knee setback.

Arsenal’s final absentee is Santi Cazorla, who is still recovering from a long term injury.
