Arsenal vs. Watford: Koscielny and Alexis status update

Good news, everyone!

The last we heard of the Arsenal squad, two important players were facing possible issues going into a return to Premier League action against Watford this weekend. Laurent Koscielny had a late test of fitness to determine his availability, and Alexis Sanchez (the only athlete in the world hotter than Daniel Murphy right now) texted Arsene Wenger claiming to be "okay" after a couple injury worries during the international break. Of course, we know Mr. No Days Off would say he was good to go after having his arms and legs surgically removed, so that was to be taken with a grain of salt.

Well, good news everyone!

Koscielny can probably be rested even if he's available, as Gabriel has played just fine in his place. Wenger might as well be cautious. Alexis, on the other hand, is made of titanium and opponents' shattered dreams, so honestly you might as well point him at the other goal and see what happens.
