Fresh Kieran Tierney update emerges ahead of Watford, when Granit Xhaka could return to training revealed

Fresh Kieran Tierney update emerges ahead of Watford, when Granit Xhaka could return to training revealed

Arsenal vs Watford

Arsenal will be back in Premier League action this coming Sunday.

The Gunners are set to face off with Watford at 2 pm UK time.

Mikel Arteta’s side head into the game on a fine run of form which has seen them remain seven unbeaten run in the Premier League – winning five and drawing two.

This run, on the back of a three-game losing streak, means that Arsenal head into the weekend’s action sitting 6th in the PL.

But with 5th-place Manchester United set to take on Manchester City, there is a good chance that the Gunners could overtake them with a win against Watford.

Watford have so far endured a mixed stint under Claudio Ranieri. They were smashed 5-0 by Liverpool before then beating Everton 5-2 and losing to Southampton last weekend.

As a result, Arsenal look clear favourites for this clash.

Tierney & Xhaka updates

Ahead of the game, Mikel Arteta would speak to the press on Friday. When doing so, the Spaniard provided fitness updates on Kieran Tierney and Granit Xhaka.

Tierney has missed Arsenal’s most recent outings through injury, but looks as though he could be available on Sunday.

Xhaka, on the other hand, is aiming to be back in full training early in January of 2022.

Such a return would, of course, come as a big boost for Arsenal, who are set to lose Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny from January 9th to the African Cup of Nations.
