Arsenal return from the international break to face Watford at Vicarage Road. Watford are sitting comfortably in 8th place only one point behind Arsenal with 12.
Shkodran Mustafi will miss the game and the next 4-6 weeks with a hamstring injury. Mesut Özil and Danny Welbeck have returned. Welbeck will start while Özil is available off the bench.
Laurent Koscielny and Sead Kolašinac had pre-match fitness test before the game, and have passed them and will play, sparing Arsenal from having to totally remake their backline.
Alexis Sanchez, who came back late from international duty with Chile (again....sigh) is not in the lineup or on the bench for this game. Alex Iwobi and Welbeck will start at the two outside forward spots today.
Aaron Ramsey is also absent from the team sheet today after his international duty with Whales.
