Watford have started the season well and will be hoping to unsettle the Arsenal side early on in their encounter.

Wenger gave a prognosis of four to six weeks, meaning that Mustafi could return after the next global break, but the Gunners boss will be keen to ensure that Mustafi is available for the Christmas period.

Shkodran Mustafi is out for four to six weeks with a thigh injury and with Laurent Koscielny also a doubt, Arsene Wenger will have to make changes for the game at Vicarage Road.

Arsenal have had plenty of injury problems with their defenders in recent seasons, but their switch to three at the back has at least limited the impact of some of those absences, with the likes of Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac impressing in the new-look formation.

"I haven't seen everybody because some players are coming back today, some even tomorrow like Alexis Sanchez", Wenger said on Thursday, when questioned about injuries picked up during the worldwide break.

Whenever the German is available again, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has something of a defensive selection poser for the trip to Hertfordshire should he look to continue with a three-man backline. I think about sorting out the problem, but overall I will decide completely tomorrow the line-up because Koscielny will have a test.

Wenger has confirmed that Laurent Koscielny is facing a late fitness test to assess his availability for the game but the signs are positive that he'll be passed fit to return from an Achilles injury. At the moment he is not available.

"Not all the players are back. But he trained on his own and the first signs are positive so we made a decision to give him a test tomorrow". "Mentally, I will have to assess the situation when he comes back tomorrow".
