FA Cup: Arsenal to host Watford

Arsenal will be hopeful to defence their FA Cup title this Sunday when they host Watford at the north London.

The Gunners have won the competition in the past two seasons and will be confident to become the first club to claim the crown three years in a row since the 1880s.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is refusing to give up on the Premier League title race. The north Londoners are currently sit third in the league table, but their arch-rivals Manchester City could move above the Gunners should they win their next game.

Arsenal’s Mertesacker and Gabriel are expected to be fit for this encounter despite their early departures against Hull City.

However, Petr Cech will miss out again, joining Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Santi Cazorla, Jack Wilshere, Tomas Rosicky, Mikel Arteta and Ramsey on the sidelines.

Arsenal possible lineup:

Ospina, Chambers, Mertesacker, Gabriel, Gibbs, Elneny, Coquelin, Campbell, Iwobi, Walcott, Giroud.

The Bottom Line:

Arsenal looks unstoppable in the FA Cup tournament, and they can’t really afford to lose the game. The home advantage at the Emirates could prove to be a key, and that gives hosts the edge.
