[Teams] Watford vs Arsenal: Confirmed Line-Ups

By on August 27, 2016

Arsenal will look to collect their first win of the new season when we take on Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon. 

Arsene Wenger has named the same back five that played during last weeks 0-0 draw at Leicester City meaning Rob Holding keeps his place alongside Laurent Koscielny at the back.

Mesut Ozil makes his first start of the new season but Olivier Giroud must make-do with a place among the substitutes as he’s not considered 100% fit as yet. Alexis Sanchez therefore keeps his place up front.

Santi Cazorla starts in midfield alongside Granit Xhaka with Francis Coquelin dropping to the bench while Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain start on the wings.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:


Gomes; Kaboul, Prödl, Kabasele; Amrabat, Guedioura, Capoue, Behrami, Holebas; Deeney (c), Ighalo.

Subs: Pantilimon, Janmaat, Zuniga, Watson, Success, Sinclair, Pereyra.


Cech; Bellerin, Holding, Koscielny, Monreal; Cazorla, Xhaka; Walcott, Ozil, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Sanchez

Subs: Ospina, Gibbs, Chambers, Wilshere, Coquelin, Elneny, Giroud
