Arsenal welcome Watford to the Emirates today hoping to keep their chances of winning the Premier League alive.

The Gunners are currently 11 points behind leaders Leicester City but will close the gap with the league leaders to eight points.

Arsenal star Mesut Ozil is expected to make his 111th start since joining the north London club on a record breaking £42.5 million move in 2013.

Ozil started in the 3-2 defeat against England and the 4-1 victory over Italy mid-week after recovering from his ankle injury.

The World Cup winner as started two games within a week so fatigue could be an issue going into the Watford clash.

Ozil has a total of 19 assists in the Premier League this season – the highest in the league – and has created more chances than any other player (116).
