Watford Vs Arsenal Lineups: Duo Ruled Out As Emery Makes 3 Changes

Arsenal suffered another away loss last weekend as a poor show at Goodison Park saw them lose third place to Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League table.

With Chelsea also losing to Liverpool on Sunday, Unai Emery’s men will have a good chance to move above the Blues, who have been threatening to take a spot in the top four in recent weeks.

Arsenal will be very much aware of how tough an opposition Watford can be after the Hornets’ success in the FA Cup last weekend.

The Gunners boss will be desperate to see his side end their awful run on the road.

Tonight’s game between Watford vs Arsenal kicks off at 8pm.
