Watford: Predicted lineup against Arsenal


Claudio Ranieri will try to make it back-to-back away wins in the Premier League for Watford as they travel to face Arsenal.

The Italian has lost his first two home games by a combined score of 6-0 since succeeding Xisco Munoz last month, but the Hornets will be comforted by their 5-2 away successes at Goodison Park.

Watford are currently just three points above the relegation zone, and they face an Arsenal team whose mood is high after their recent victory race.

This is how Ranieri was able to line up his page.

Ben Foster (GK) – A YouTube star, and also an excellent goalkeeper in his spare time.

Jeremy Ngakia (RB) – Only 21 years old, but he has shown promising signs this semester.

William Troost-Ekong (CB) – The Nigeria international is an intelligent defender, and he will get his job away against Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Craig Cathcart (CB) – The leader of Watford’s back line, and the kind of defender Ranieri usually gives when he takes over at a club.

Adam Masina (LB) – Boasts an excellent delivery from the left-back that will surely worry Arsenal.

Moussa Sissoko (CM) – The former Tottenham man will be keen to get one over to his former rivals.

Tom Cleverley (CM) – His gravel and stubbornness in midfield will be the key in the afternoon.

Juraj Kucka (CM) – Does not mind making the hard laps defensive, while maintaining a threat going forward.

Ismaila Sarr (RW) – The Senegalese is a burning pace and close to control, a huge threat to the counterattack.

Josh King (ST) – A hat trick against Everton on Hornet’s last away trip in the Premier League.

Cucho Hernandez (LW) – Ranieri can choose a more defensive alternative, but his pace in the transfer, along with Sarr on the opposite flank, should keep Arsenal honest.
