Arsenal team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Watford

Sports Mole rounds up Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Monday's Premier League fixture with Watford.

Arsenal head into Monday's Premier League encounter with Watford having to contend with three games in the space of a week.

The Gunners are targeting a top-four place in the standings, but Unai Emery must contemplate changes with a fixture against Napoli in the Europa League to come just three days after the game at Vicarage Road.

Arsenal face the Hornets having registered a 2-0 triumph over the Italian giants at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday night.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for Emery's side ahead of the encounter with the FA Cup finalists.
