Watford 2 - 2 Arsenal | 15 Sep 2019

Arsenal expect clean bill of health after international break

Arsenal raced into a two-goal lead at Vicarage thanks to a first-half brace from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and looked certain to pick up their third win of the season.

Meanwhile, his manager, Unai Emery, admits that the youngster brews confidence and his technically strong. Quique Sanchez Flores has returned into Vicarage Road to direct the Hornets, who sponsor an Arsenal side that look almost as good moving ahead while they perform feeble.

As they did in the first half, Watford flew out of the blocks in the second and clawed a goal back when Sokratis fluffed a clearance into the path of Deulofeu, who teed Cleverley up for a rasping finish low into Leno's net.

"I think he did it at Monaco, but it didn't work".

One second after, Hornets forwards Troy Deeney has been shown a straight red card for a battle on Lucas Torreira. Back them to earn revenge. They will not take part in the Watford game, meaning Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Sead Kolasinac are likely starters in the full-back positions.

Unai Emery's side have won their last three games against Watford and the Hornets were actually the only side who failed to score against the Gunners in the Premier League last season.

But that changed when Aubameyang, last season's joint top Premier League goalscorer, got his first sniff of a chance. The Gunners will also be able to call upon Rob Holding, who is back in full training, though Sunday is too early for Hector Bellerin, Kieran Tierney and Konstantinos Mavropanos.

The former Spurs man is a frequent recipient of cards - he equalled the all-time Premier League yellow card record last season with a whopping 14 - and he is rarely as high as 3/1 (Betfred) to have his name taken. He's there. What I expect from young people is that they bring this freshness, this dynamism. Arsenal had a good start to the campaign after winning the first three matches in the league.

On paper, Arsenal dominate in terms of quality, but Watford have sprung some surprises against the Gunners in recent years.
