Watford vs Arsenal 14 October 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

Koscielny left has missed three league games for Arsenal

Arsenal have been dealt a blow with the news that Shkodran Mustafi could be out for up to six weeks.

Wenger has confirmed that the 25-year-old will be out for between a month and six weeks, meaning he could make his return in the north London derby against Tottenham following the final global break of 2017.

"Koscielny has a definite final test tomorrow but at the moment he is not available". Secondly, Germany had already qualified so I didn't expect him to be out injured as the games would be less intense. I want to win as many trophies with Arsenal as possible. "What you wouldn't like to sacrifice is the evening with the family for people, but overall we go towards a society where religion isn't considered anymore in any decision and where people want as well to watch football in the Christmas period".

Wenger could draft in Calum Chambers or Rob Holding, while veteran Per Mertesacker also lies in wait. Mustafi's value is hard to overstate as Arsenal (4-1-2) have recorded clean sheets in their last four league contests with the Germany global anchoring the central defence.

Watford are yet to win at home this season while the Gunners haven't won on their travels, meaning the match could be a tight affair. They are winless in their last five (0-3-2) top-flight matches at Vicarage Road dating back to last season.

Arsene Wenger revealed that Sanchez was in a "difficult place" after his country Chile failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup. If Sanchez is unavailable, Olivier Giroud could feature since he is in good form after scoring for France in their 2-1 victory over Belarus that punched Les Bleus' ticket to Russian Federation next year.

Watford made a blistering start that day, going two goals up within 13 minutes, thanks to goals from Younes Kaboul and Troy Deeney.

The 20-year-old Hornets wide-man has been an instant hit since being introduced to the Watford faithful, providing the team with three goals and an assist since his move from Fluminense.
