Arsenal surprise XI vs Watford

When the team sheets came out on Sunday for Arsenal’s Premier League match with Watford there were major changes to the Gunners XI.

Of course, Arsenal are facing an uphill battle to qualify for the Champions League via the top four.

Arsenal are off the pace in the Premier League, however they could still play UCL football next season by winning the Europa League.

But if that happened, would Arsene Wenger see out the final year of his contract?
