Arsenal can go level on points with champions Manchester City when they play Watford in the Premier League at Vicarage Road.
The hosts are going through a transition after sacking head coach Javi Garcia following three defeats and one draw in the first four league games.
But a lot of results have gone in Hornets’ favor this weekend. A win will be enough to propel them out of the bottom three.
Arsenal know these are the kind of games where they just can’t afford to drop points. Unai Emry is well aware of the fact that delivering the Champions League is of ultra importance this season. That it’s time to go a little further than the so-called transition period.
The Premier League match will be played between Watford and Arsenal at Vicarage Road, in Watford, Hertfordshire, England. The ground has a capacity of 21,577.
The game will start at 09:00 PM (IST), on Sunday, September 15.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang: Arsenal’s hitman is a no-nonsense choice on any given day.
Nicolas Pepe: The only player last season across all the major European leagues to rack up both goals and assists in double-digits. With the premier League experience already behind him, expect more impact from him here.
Strength and attributes:
Dani Ceballos: He set-up two goals in Spain’s 4-0 win over Feroa islands. The 23-year-old is pretty much a regular in Spain’s midfield after, which shows his growing reputation, His quick feet and the ability to dribble away from the opponents in tight situations, make him a unique player in Arsenal’s midfield.
Gerard Deulofeu: hasn’t been at his fluent best in the first four games, But for a player of his capacity, it takes only a successful dribble to feel the confidence back.
