Mesut Ozil On Bench - Arsenal Team vs Watford Confirmed


There have been plenty of other examples, both at home and overseas, and Aubameyang - speaking after Arsenal secured a 2-0 win over Napoli in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final - admitted he has been dismayed by the recent issues.

"Everyone knows me and Arsenal don't get on too well", he said.

"I had the same problem here against Tottenham".

Javi Gracia insists Troy Deeney's elbow did not merit a red card against Arsenal in Watford's 1-0 defeat at Vicarage Road. "Hopefully we will find a way to kick it out".

Unai Emery comes up against Watford head coach Javi Gracia on Monday night and has revealed his fellow Spaniard was the first person he called when it became clear he was in the running for the Arsenal job.

During the 2018-19 season, the 30-year-old has been a key figure for Spurs at the back having played 29 league games already but as of now, there are no signs that Daniel Levy's club will be handing him a new deal during the summer. He's even scored a goal or two, as seen in one of the North London derbies earlier this year.

Aubameyang believes the trip to the San Paolo Stadium for the second leg is the flawless place to prove Arsenal are capable of winning big games on the road. "But above all the three points are more important".

"Now we will go to Napoli with a lot of confidence and we will go there to score goals". I think it was very important in this position with one more player on the pitch to break the lines and attack the last third better with our players, and in the second half we didn't score a goal with good chances. "The result will do for us".
