Can Arsenal score their first Premier League win of the season? Well, it’s all to play for on Aug. 27 at 10am EST as they go to battle against Watford in what should a thrilling London derby. Watch all the action with us on a live stream by clicking here!
Arsenal fans have been smarting about their start to the new season. After opening up with a 4-3 loss to rivals Liverpool, they drew a blank against Leicester City in game 2 in a 0-0 tie. Manager Arsene Wenger has also come under-fire for not adding enough numbers to his squad in the transfer market, as an injury crisis rocks the team.
Luckily for Arsenal, the return of Laurent Koscielny at the heart of their defense at the King Power Stadium, in what was a man of the match performance, eased their defensive worries. But up top, where they are missing the likes of striker Olivier Giroud and playmaker Mesut Ozil, they still seem short of ideas going forward.
Watford too have suffered a pretty unglamorous start to proceedings, suffering a humiliating home defeat to Gillingham in the EFL Cup on Aug. 23. New coach Walter Mazzarri slammed his players for their inadequate performance and admitted he was “massively disappointed” with the cup exit.
Still, things are looking up after they signed Dutch international Daryl Janmaat for a fee believed to be $10m. He will add much steel to their defense, as well as some trademark marauding runs from the right back position.
As ever, all eyes will be on Watford’s centre forward Troy Deeney. His link-up play will be the springboard for the Hornets’ attacks and he will try and bully the Arsenal backline.
