Watford vs Arsenal: Line-up: STRONG Starting XI For Saturday’s Clash

Watford will welcome Arsenal this weekend as the Premier League resumes after the international break.

Quique Sanchez Flores has a number of injury concerns ahead of the home clash against Arsenal.

At the back, Allan Nyom is a doubt with a knee injury, while Ikechi Anya is rated even more doubtful with a calf injury. Jose Holebas could start at left-back then, while Juan Carlos Peredes may come in if Nyom is ruled out. Craig Cathcart and Sebastian Prodl should continue in central defence.

Valon Behrami is back after suspension but is struggling with a calf injury. Should he miss out, Ben Watson would likely continue alongside Etienne Capoue at the base of midfield in a 4-2-3-1 formation.

Jurado missed out against Bournemouth because of a hamstring injury, and remains a doubt. Troy Deeney and Odion Ighalo will again be partnered in attack, with the former set to be stationed in the number ten role.

Almen Abdi looks a certain starter, while Steven Berghuis, Adlène Guedioura and Alessandro Diamanti offer options to complete the attacking positions behind Ighalo. Joel Ekstrand (knee) is still unavailable.

Having said this, here is how I expect Watford to line-up against Arsenal this Saturday.
