Arsenal FC Starting XI Prediction vs Watford FC 


Quique Sanchez Flores is the main storyline heading into the Sunday matinee between his Watford FC side and visiting Arsenal.

Vicarage Road became the first club to sack their manager (Javi Gracia) this young season as the Hornets sit in dead last after the first four games. Flores knows he needs to hit the ground running.

“You need to take all this and try to improve as soon as possible and we don’t have time,” he said.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery backs Flores to succeed in his managerial stint.

“He is going to know the team and players. He knows some players because he trained there three years ago,” the Spaniard said. “He’s going to do well.”

Let’s take a look at who Emery could select in his first team as he looks to take all three points from this one.
