Gunners have defensive problems ahead of Watford trip

Gunners have defensive problems ahead of Watford trip

Wenger suggested Wilshere would continue to be involved in Arsenal matches this season and insisted that if fully fit, the midfielder will secure a place in England's squad for the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Off-the-pitch matters involving Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez continue to linger, but four league clean sheets have been recorded in a row and Alexandre Lacazette is starting to contribute on a regular basis.

Arsenal were dealt a fresh blow in terms of an injury during the global break when Mustafi hobbled off with hamstring trouble while playing for Germany.

The Gunners are still suffering from back-to-back defeats to Stoke City and Liverpool, but Wenger has at least started to find solutions both at the back and in the final third.

Arsenal are strong favourites to win this game with the bookies, at 3/5.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been speaking to reporters ahead of his side's clash against Watford, with his comments published online by ESPN. 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.

Their winning run on the road came to an end when they drew at West Brom, but the story of that came tells a very different story to the result as they managed to come from two goals down against one of the league's most stingy defences, and they eventually ended up dominating before Richarlison's late header gave them a point.

Arsenal have won three of the last four editions of the FA Cup, but Watford are the only team to have beaten Arsenal in the competition since 2014.

Francis Coquelin is available after recovering from a hamstring injury.

"Koscielny will have a test tomorrow", Wenger added.

"Ozil and Welbeck are back in the group in normal training".

Alexis Sanchez is a slight doubt for the Gunners due to fatigue following the global break. Shkodran Mustafi became the first new addition to the treatment table after picking up a thigh problem while playing for Germany, a setback that is expected to keep him out for six weeks. The defender joins Callum Chambers and Santi Cazorla on the sidelines.
