Match against Watford - Who has the cojones now?

Interesting match to observe how Emery's team will handle the physical intimidation from the likes of Deeney and company.

Watford knew that we are vulnerable against counter-attack down the flanks with both Bellerin and Monreal out of position frequently, and no shield from midfield.

Mustafi is always good for one or two slips and mistimed interception.
Plus Cech is good for one or two misplaced or miskicked passes out of the box.

Do Watford possess a deadly finisher to punish us?
We had been riding our luck so far ... but Lady Luck is fickle and may decided it is time to punish Arsenal FC for all those defensive howlers in every game they played so far.

Can Emery and his finally finally get their acts together to field a defensively solid team against Watford?

Sokratis should be fit or half-fit to play.


................................ Cech

... Bellerin ... Mustafi ... Sokratis ... Monreal

................ Torreira ................ Xhaka

... Aubameyang ..........Ozil...............Iwobi

............................. Lacazette

I prefer a fired-up and hardworking Iwobi down the left.
he is willing to track back.

Welbeck and Mkhitarayn are reserved for the mid-week Europa Cup game.

Certainly the toughest match in a while.
I think Cech is now much improved, and we better hope Sokratis is fit. Watford also seem to have lost their eraly impetus. Also we are clearly a better team when Torreria starts



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

Hopefully our front two will keep them busy.

We need our #10 shirt to play like a #10 and feed the scoring talent around him.
It's time.

And we need to sharpen up our finishing.

Defence remains a concern, particularly against Watford's height.
That said, Torreira is a lock as a starter - the difference is obvious when he does not.
Cech needs to continue to command the box.

Everyone needs to step up their game.

I think we'll win this game and continue to build momentum. Watford are good at set pieces but if we can avoid giving them too many of those, our strikeforce should be good enough to win the game.

I'm just glad some optimism is returning as an Arsenal fan.

Yep we had the cojones in the end. They tried to rough us up and got away with a pen and should have had a sending off, but we beat them

Oh man, I certainly love this Emery Team who play like men, got knocked down and kicked all over the pitch, but got up, dusted themselves off and gave as good as they get.
Heads never hang down, and just plugged away to score an ugly goal and a beautiful tap-in on the break.
