Wenger reveals team news ahead of Watford clash


Arsene Wenger has provided the latest team news ahead of tomorrow night’s Premier League game against Watford.

The Gunners won with a heavily rotated side at the weekend, hammering Southampton 5-0, and there was obviously some caution with that selection.

Players like Mesut Ozil, Francis Coquelin, Olivier Giroud and Aaron Ramsey were rested but are back in contention for tomorrow night.

“We have some people to check from Saturday,” he said. “Everyone who stayed behind is available for selection, bar Xhaka, so I will have to check that today who plays.”

After two goals against the Saints, the Arsenal manager was asked about Danny Welbeck, and said some caution is still needed as he makes his way back from injury.

“He looked very sharp, but we still have to be cautious. Physically he is ready to play, but we will have to manage the times when we use him, and when we we rest him in the next month, and hopefully he’ll be fully fit.

“To play like he played on Saturday, you have to work hard, it’s not a gift of god, you have to go through all kinds of suffering.”
