Arsenal lineup for Mikel Arteta’s 100th game as Martin Odegaard returns and Tierney decision made vs Watford


Shakezsports.com Gunners writers pick Mikel Arteta’s lineup for the PL experience against Watford at the Emirates tomorrow.

Arteta assumes responsibility for his 100th Gunners game on Sunday evening.

What’s more, the best way to commend the milestone event is with a success over Watford to broaden the north Londoners’ unbeaten stumble into all contests to 10 matches – extending right back to before the September worldwide break.

Since that 5-0 defeat away at the Ethihad Stadium, the Gunners have taken 17 points from a potential 21 which has put them in dispute for an unexpected top-four push.

Besides, they’re into the Carabao Cup quarter-last – where they’ll confront League One resistance in Sunderland at home one month from now – so most would agree there’s a good vibe around the club right now.

An inclination that Mikel Arteta will be quick to keep up with heading into the last worldwide break of 2021.

All things considered, the signs absolutely give great survey to the Gunners boss as the north Londoners have won their last three home games against the Hornets, scoring eight and surrendering two all the while.

It completed 3-2 the last time the sides met on the last day of the 2019/2020 season and a rehash scoreline will be by and large what’s on the menu for the hosts as they hope to guarantee Mikel Arteta’s enormous day isn’t destroyed.

Indeed, Xhaka is the main first-cooperative person certainly inaccessible for choice, and the Emirates outfit could be helped by the arrival of Tierney after three games out with a lower leg issue.

Subsequently with a close to original capacity crew available to him, Arteta will be given a determination migraine in front of naming his arrangement to confront Watford.

Fortunately for Mikel Arteta, shakezsports.com’s Gunners writers Kaynak and Tashan are available to give their say on who should begin at the Emirates.


Most likely the main individual related with the north Londoners who didn’t appreciate Ramsdale’s save against Leicester City was Leno, however after the England ‘attendant’s exhibition last week how is it possible that you would even ponder dropping him?!

The equivalent goes for the aggregate of the back four before him.

This might sound contemptuous of Kieran Tierney who gets an opportunity of being back from injury, however as far as I can tell, there is little point playing the 24-year-old player now when he will play for the Scottish side during the worldwide break.

Better to allow him to rest now and move minutes in his legs while away with worldwide obligation, while Tavares has demonstrated that he is an entirely skilled substitution.

In midfield again I would not change anything as Sambi Lokonga and Partey have worked pleasantly as a couple that offer centrality to the group.

I think Saka’s best position is on the right and Smith Rowe is generally fit to a left wing job, so again I’m keeping that the equivalent.

Front and center Aubameyang is a conspicuous starter, while in the firmly warmed challenge between Lacazette and Odegaard I would pretty much pick the French international in spite of the fact that Martin Odegaard’s cleverness off the seat could be expected to separate what is probably going to be a firmly stuffed the defense of Watford.

Thinking back it now I haven’t rolled out a solitary improvement from last week’s success over Leicester City which should be an indication that Arteta has tracked down a triumphant recipe in the Emirates.

Kaynak’s Gunners XI versus Watford: Aaron Ramsdale; Takehiro Tomiyasu, Ben White, Gabriel Magalhaes, Nuno Tavares; Thomas Partey, Albert Sambi Lokonga; BukayoSaka, Alexandre Lacazette, Emile Smith Rowe; Pierre-emerick Aubameyang.


Arteta has named 99 lineup for the Gunners during his residency up until this point and the 100th game might be the least demanding one to date.

The back five picks itself now. Ramsdale hasn’t put a foot wrong since coming in for Leno, while Tomiyasu, White and Magalhaes give steadiness in the backline.

Maybe the one extreme choice Mikel Arteta needs to make is at left-back with Tierney possibly being accessible, yet regardless of whether he breeze through a wellness assessment, Tavares ought to get approval by now.

I would, nonetheless, change the setup marginally from 4-4-2 to 4-2-3-1 to get Odegaard back in the side as his inventiveness could be vital to opening a Watford City’s defense prone to be solid.

With the Norwegian playmaker beginning in the number 10 job in front of the Partey-Lokonga twofold turn, it implies Lacazette’s disagreement the group would be finished.

The French forward has been respectable in the two matches he’s begun, however, he will be more qualified to falling off the seat in case the Gunners are pursuing a late on goal.

In the mean time, the remainder of the group picks itself. Saka and Smith Rowe are compelling from the wings, and Aubameyang has saved his goalscoring takes advantage of the PL home matches.
