Gunners star Ozil likely to make first start of season at Watford

It is one thing for Wenger to play it safe while teams like Manchester United are smashing the world record for Paul Pogba - it is an entirely different matter when Watford have surpassed a Champions League club like Arsenal in terms of spending. It has been a busy summer at Vicarage Road after eight new signings with Roberto Pereyra, Younes Kaboul and Daryl Janmaat in contention to make their debuts this weekend.

Watford has taken the lead in both of its Premier League game so far this season, but ended up coming away with just a single point at Southampton and no points from last week's visit of Chelsea.

Calhanoglu, regarded as a set-piece specialist, has scored 21 goals in two seasons at the BayArena and would aid Spurs striker Harry Kane in providing goals, should he arrive at White Hart Lane in the next week.

While the 3-5-2 formation may work for Watford when in control, playing three at the back always invites wide threat should there be a fast turnover in play.

That's a pretty severe warning for Arsenal fans who have spent all summer waiting for proven, high-profile additions to a squad that clearly needed improving after squandering a clear opportunity to win the Premier League last season.

"For example we had a bad result on Tuesday (losing 2-1 to Gillingham in the EFL Cup) but it gave me a chance to see who should be playing less and who should be playing more".

The Gunners remain winless after a draw against Leicester City and their opening day defeat against Liverpool at home.

Arsenal are warm favourites for this clash and it is hard to argue against their price of [1.76].

Ighalo hooked an overhead kick narrowly over the crossbar but it was all too little, too late for Watford, who have now lost seven out of seven Premier League matches against Arsene Wenger's side.

While both Watford and Arsenal are without a win as they enter their third game of the new Premier League season, the Nigerians are yet to hit the this season.

The draw is 11/4 (Coral) but this has not occurred in the last 15 meetings dating back to 1984. Enough evidence to avoid backing this outcome at [3.9]. There is no guarantee Wenger's side will get off to a fast start.

The discontent amongst Arsenal supporters is hardly a secret and the fact Lacazette has started the season with five goals in just two Ligue 1 appearances makes the club's reluctance to act all the more infuriating. It was also level in the previous contest at the Hornets.
