Mesut Ozil On Bench - Arsenal Team vs Watford Confirmed

A terrific box-to-box performance from Ramsey

A terrific box-to-box performance from Ramsey

"I try to have good behaviour because I know we are an example to other people".

"I had the same problem here against Tottenham".

Watford head coach Javi Gracia said the club has spoken to players about racist abuse, offering support after players were targeted on social media.

On the pitch, Arsenal took control of their tie with Napoli as an Aaron Ramsey strike and a Kalidou Koulibaly own goal set them up for the second leg in Italy next week.

Watford boss Javi Gracia maintains his players will not have one eye on the FA Cup final when they host Arsenal on Monday.

The Wales midfielder has been a consistent performer in the Arsenal team this season and he has been earning lots of praise for his recent displays.

Aubameyang believes the trip to the San Paolo Stadium for the second leg is the ideal place to prove Arsenal are capable of winning big games on the road.

He said: "I think we can control the match better. But above all the three points are more important".

Let's be realistic, as things stand right now we cannot offer Alderweireld wages above what Spurs could offer him, we cannot guarantee him success any more than what Tottenham can, we cannot even guarantee Champions League football right now. We have to improve that. 'I continued speaking with him about doing something very important in the last matches here in two competitions that are very important for us.

"But our goal gives us the advantage in the result".

Watford are now 10th, but with a game in hand over Everton and Leicester, Gracia knows the importance of making that count.
