Arsenal v Watford: Confirmed Starting Line-ups – Mesut Ozil starts

Arsenal welcome Watford to the Emirates knowing that they must win in order to stay in the title race.

The Gunners are currently in third place 11 points behind leaders Leicester City but do have a game in  hand.

North London rivals Tottenham are currently in second six points clear of Arenal.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will be without Jack Wilshere, Tomas Rosicky, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Santi Cazorla, Mathieu Flamini and Aaron Ramsey all of whom are injured going into the game.

Mesut Ozil is however, fit despite suffering an ankle injury following the win over Everton last week.

The World Cup winner starred in the 3-2 defeat to England and the 4-1 win over Germany last week so fatigue could be an issue but he will start today.
