Watford-vs-Arsenal-Match-Preview-and-Prediction-27-August-2016-EPL-2016-17

With the imminent arrival of both Lucas Perez and Shkodran Mustafi, and the possibility of Mezut Ozil making his first appearance of the season, there is so much buzz going on among Arsenal fans. The belief at the Emirate is beginning to grow and  they will be hoping that they can finally kick start their season with a Victory at Vicarage road.

Getting a victory at vicarage road won’t be an easy fixture for Arsenal because Watford are without a win this season and will be determined to get one over Arsenal.

Walter Mazzarri’s side are well organised as we saw against Chelsea but still, I expect Arsenal to win this.

Team News.

Wenger on the Team news:

He said,basically, we have the same squad available as last week. I think it will be a similar squad.

When asked if Giroud will start, he said, Giroud is still a little fraction behind physically.

They are progressing well. Will it be immediate after the break that they are back? That’s what we have to see in the next two weeks.
