Premier League Football - 27 August 2016

"Watford is going to be another tough game because every game is this season, so it's going to be very hard".

Simon Brotherton: "Maybe the chants from Arsenal fans about spending some money will die down a little now that both defender Shkodran Mustafi and striker Lucas Perez are set to arrive, but it appears neither player will be involved in this weekend's fixture at Vicarage Road".

The Hornets held Southampton to a very credible 1-1 draw at St. Mary's on the opening day of the season and looked set to earn another point at home against a revitalized Chelsea side last weekend before Diego Costa struck an 87-minute victor.

In search of a lifeline, Walter Mazzarri handed debuts to Pereyra and Daryl Janmaat off the bench, and the former Juventus man needed just 12 minutes to make his mark.

Drawing attention to the two lines that are shaved into the side of the 25-year-old's head, the image below shows that bringing in a new centre back will greatly increase Arsenal's title chances.

"As far as this club is concerned, (they) gave me a three-year contract".

"I rate Deeney because he's a player who has technical quality first of all, but he's also a fighter".

These are tense times for those connected with Arsenal Football Club. The Ivory Coast worldwide is struggling with a foot injury. "I focus first on making the right decisions for the club".

Watford could be the place to go for an upset as a twitchy, winless Arsenal are the visitors and the hosts are 9/2 while a 2-1 victory at 17/1 with Bet Victor is also worth a nibble. Midfielders Aaron Ramsey and Alex Iwobi, defenders Carl Jenkinson, Per Mertesacker and Gabriel Paulista, and utility forward Danny Welbeck have all been ruled out.

With Watford reeling, the Gunners added a third on the stroke of half-time.

Watford, on the other hand, drew 1-1 with Southampton in Walter Mazzarri's opening Premier League game in charge of the Hornets before a 2-1 defeat by Chelsea last weekend following Diego Costa's late victor.

It is hard to back the Hornets with confidence after failing to hold onto the lead in their three matches this season. No player in the club's history has ever scored in three straight games at the start of a top-flight campaign.

It seems like a pretty starightforward choice for the manager to make and one that is based on how much risk he is willing to take to ensure Arsenal record our first EPL win of the season.
