Arsenal XI vs Watford: Predicted line-ups, confirmed squad news and latest injuries for the Premier League today

Smith Rowe missed last weekend’s win over Wolves through illness but is back available as the Gunners bid for a top-four finish in the hunt for Champions League qualification.

Takehiro Tomiyasu is doubtful due to his calf injury.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta faces a selection dilemma over whether to start Smith Rowe or Gabriel Martinelli on the left flank.

Smith Rowe scored in his last appearance, a 2-1 win over Brentford, and will hope to start at Vicarage Road.

With Tomiyasu struggling, Cedric Soares is set to start again at right-back.

“We are in the same place as last week, we still have a doubt about Tomiyasu but I think the rest is in the right place,” Arteta said.

Arsenal predicted XI: Ramsdale; Cedric, White, Gabriel, Tierney; Partey, Xhaka; Saka, Odegaard, Smith Rowe; Lacazette.
