Confirmed Arsenal line up vs. Watford: Ainsley Maitland-Niles returns for Gunners

Posted by

Arsenal is set to host Watford in Sunday afternoon’s early Premier League kick-off.

Mikel Arteta’s Gunners will come into the game in good form and are unbeaten in their last nine matches, in all competitions.

Looking to leapfrog Brighton and Hove Albion, as well as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s struggling Manchester United, in the league table, a win on Sunday for Arsenal could see them go fourth.

Elsewhere, Watford, now managed by former title winner Claudio Ranieri, will be desperate to take at least a point away from the country’s capital.
