Arsenal looks sharp under their new manager Unai Emery. Arsenal seems to be in a comfortable position at the moment. They have got themselves 6 wins on the throat now. They beat Brentford on Wednesday in Carabao Cup. They are said to face a side who started off the season really well but aren’t doing that great the moment after they lost to Tottenham in the midweek in Carabao Cup. Yes, it is Watford. Arsenal look to continue the good run of form this Saturday.  It looks like there will be a disturbance in the Arsenal dressing room with Ramsey contract talks broken down this week.  We will have to wait and see how they cope with it.  Most of the players were rested in the midweek when Arsenal played against Brentford.  Unai Emery is getting best out of the players who hadn’t performed past few seasons for Arsenal like Danny Welbeck, Alex Iwobi. Danny Welbeck has scored 4 goals already this season and Alex Iwobi gives that energy to the team with his determination and passion. Everything seems to be going smoothly for Arsenal at the moment apart from Ramsey transfer news.

On the other hand, Watford going into the fixture for the first time since 1984 says all about their start to the campaign. They will look to continue their good run although they have slipped in the last three fixtures. They lost to Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United and drew to Fulham.   They have struggled with away fixtures with only one win in their last 14 away matches.

Arsenal will look to increase their winning to streak to 5 wins in the premiers league and 7 wins in all competitions.  Arsenal fans are loving the post-Wenger term with things going their way apart from the first two fixtures against Manchester City and Chelsea. Arsenal can go sit comfortably in 4th position if they win this week. It will boost their confidence.

Arsenal will look to continue on their brilliant display against Everton last week. They also got themselves a clean sheet which is rare. They have a lethal attack with Lacazette in fine form along with Aubameyang. Both of them got themselves goals last premier league fixture.  Cech also put in a fine performance last fixture. He will look to build on his clean sheet. He made some fine stops. He will hope to get another clean sheet under his belt.

Arsenal did get a clean sheet last time around but they still have defensive issues. They let Everton create so many chances last time around. Cech did a fine job to stop them all. They have got better defensively but they still need to improve a lot defensively.  Arsenal is following the quote ” Attack is the best form of “. They have brilliant in attack. They have been lethal.
