Arsenal stars have let Wenger down admits Wilshere

Mark Lawrenson is backing Arsenal to ease to a resounding win against Watford at The Emirates on Sunday afternoon.

"Watford have won two of their last three games in all competitions at the Emirates and took all three points when the sides met at Vicarage Road earlier in the season thanks to an injury-time victor from Tom Cleverley". Since coach Ballardini arrived, they have achieved great results.

Unsurprisingly Arsenal have only managed to secure three victories in their 15 away games in the Premier League in the 2017-18 season.

Jack Wilshere admits Arsenal's stars hadn't done enough to ease the pressure on Arsene Wenger before they finally took the strain off their beleaguered boss by beating AC Milan. Deeney has been instrumental for Watford in their last two games, scoring the victor against West Brom and Everton in a 1-0 win against both sides at home.

He continued to hound Arsenal's defence and Watford found a winning goal in injury time thanks to Tom Cleverley, but the star of the show was Deeney.

Greece global Holebas suffered an ankle injury in Watford's last outing, a 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion, which Femenia missed due to illness. For many players it was game number four in 10 days and I have to see how the players recover for Sunday and after make my decision. There is likely to be an extra hint of flair to the game following Deeney's comments, and Garcia has revealed he likes his captain's honesty even if it did rub the Arsenal fans up the wrong way. I made 820 Premier League games, 200 European club games but there is no possibility not to suffer.

Watford, under the new manager Javi Garcia are slowly improving to a standard they are capable of - in the Premier League.

They will be out to continue that form at home to Watford and avoid an unwanted record under Arsene Wenger, having previously lost four league games in a row back in March 1995 under caretaker Stewart Houston. I'm not going to be the one to tell Mr Wenger about himself, but there's a reason why they lost and it wasn't because of one penalty.

Arsenal are without a clean sheet in 11 top-flight matches.

Atletico Madrid cruised to a 3-0 home win over Lokomotiv Moscow with goals from Saul Niguez, Diego Costa and Koke, while Olympique Lyonnais defied freezing conditions to win 1-0 at CSKA Moscow thanks to Marcelo's second-half strike.

The last time a team won three straight Premier League games 1-0 with the same player scoring each time was Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge in September 2013.
