22 minutes: Torreira wins one other free-kick, and has made himself very unpopular with the house followers. I nonetheless assume the choice to ship Deeney off was the proper one. “Fascinating foul from Troy Deeney,” says Gary Naylor. “I think (and I feel Deeney has stated as a lot prior to now) that he was testing the waters with an early ‘orange’ absolutely anticipating that a yellow would come. It didn’t, and rightly so. Falls into the ‘too intelligent by half’ drawer.”

20 minutes: The free-kick is lifted into the world, it comes off Kabasele and drops to Cathcart, whose volley goalwards is saved!

19 minutes: Large cheers as Watford get their first free-kick of the sport, when Torreira brings down Capoue. “Off! Off! Off!” shout the house followers.

17 minutes: Iwobi will get down the left and crosses, Aubameyang reaches it on the close to submit, however the ball deflects vast off Cathcart.

17 minutes: It has been a mind-boggling implosion from Watford, who had began the sport so nicely however have gifted their opponents a aim and a person benefit. Weird decision-making from two very skilled gamers.

14 minutes: Hughes tackles Mkhitaryan, who collapses to the ground and rolls round clutching his ankle. The referee tells him to rise up, and so he stops rolling round, will get up and trots off, utterly fantastic.

12 minutes: I feel that’s not a horrible name. Deeney ran previous Torreira and as he did so pushed his forearm into his opponent. It wasn’t very violent, nevertheless it was solely pointless.

11 minutes: The referee, or his assistant, has seen one thing the cameras haven't. There was apparently a coming along with Torreira. Arsenal declare there was an elbow, and the referee brings out a purple card!

11 minutes: Aubameyang closed down the keeper nicely there, however that's only a hideous aim to concede.

Arsenal take the lead, and that's an absolute present! Janmaat passes again to Foster, whose first contact is poor, and whose clearance hits Aubameyang’s ankle and rebounds into the web!

eight minutes: Xhaka’s ridiculous collapse when Masina lays a flat palm gently towards his again earns Arsenal a free-kick, and a little bit of a breather.

7 minutes: It’s been a nice begin for the house aspect, who appear to be profitable all of the 50/50 challenges, and a good few 60/40 and 70/30s as properly.

5 minutes: That results in a Watford nook, from which they strain the Arsenal defence for some time, till Hughes shanks a volley large.

four minutes: Femenia barely overhits a cross to Grey, and Mavrapanos cuts it out to finish a briefly very promising Watford assault.

2 minutes: Grey closes down Leno, and forces the keeper right into a panicked clearance. The gang roars.

1 min: Peeeeep! Watford get the sport began!

Arsenal are of their third package, which for many who haven’t seen it's “a contemporary inexperienced base color with navy detailing”.

And out they arrive!

The gamers have gathered within the tunnel.

Javi Gracia has a pre-match chat. He says his group will begin with a again three, which is a big departure for him:

With the gamers we've we will change form through the recreation. It is dependent upon totally different circumstances. [Emery] got here to see us many occasions however I feel it’s not crucial to know one another. An important is what is occurring on the pitch and at this second the primary protagonists are the gamers. I feel we’ll see a great recreation and I hope we’ll have a great outcome on the finish for us.

I feel the absence of each Pereyra and Deulofeu could be very vital for Watford. The Argentinian has been in mediocre type for a lot of the season, however both of these gamers can conjure a aim at any second, and with out them their assault is slightly prosaic.

Right here’s the Press Affiliation’s team-news-based replace:

Arsenal made six modifications for his or her Premier League conflict at Watford as Konstantinos Mavropanos made his first begin since Might.

The Gunners face Napoli within the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final and journey to Italy defending a 2-Zero lead.

Moody sundown photograph of the day:

Good stat from Invoice Edgar within the Occasions this morning: if Watford don't beat Arsenal tonight it's going to be sure that this would be the first top-flight case of three seasons in a row with the identical groups filling the highest six locations (in any order).

Six modifications for Arsenal, together with Bernd Leno in objective. Ozil and Lacazette each drop to the bench.

Watford are additionally much-changed: Adam Masina is available in at left-back, Christian Kabasele is at centre-back, and neither Roberto Pereyra or Gerard Deulofeu are match.

These are at the moment’s groups:

Watford: Foster, Janmaat, Kabasele, Cathcart, Masina, Femenia, Capoue, Doucoure, Hughes, Deeney, Grey. Subs: Gomes, Britos, Mariappa, Success, Sema, Chalobah, Navarro.

Watford gained this fixture final yr, a riproaring 2-1 victory sealed by Tom Cleverley’s stoppage-time strike which prompted Troy Deeney, scorer of his aspect’s different objective that night time, to ship his sermon about Arsenal and their issue with “cojones”.
