Arsenal slipped out of the Top 4 of the Premier League when they drew their home game vs Tottenham Hotspur but they have a chance of getting back amongst the Champions League spots.
The Gunners will hit the road this weekend as they take on Watford at Vicarage Road and this should be an easy three-pointer for Unai Emery’s men.
The Hornets will be playing under a new manager after the club sacked Javi Garcia and new boss Quique Sánchez Flores will need some time to sort out his first XI. And this is the perfect time for Arsenal to put some confidence under their belt.
But having said that there might a glimmer of hope for the Gunners since a number of first-team regulars picked up knocks while on international duty and there are fears that the manager might have a midfield crisis going into Sunday’s game.
