Mikel Arteta has turned things around recently.(Zac Goodwin/PA)
Arsenal face Watford at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon as they look to continue their resurgence under Mikel Arteta.
The Spaniard was under significant pressure in the early portion of the season after chastening defeats to Brentford, Chelsea and Manchester City, but a strong unbeaten run since August has left them not too far behind the likes of Manchester United and West Ham United in the standings.
Watford are looking over their shoulder at the relegation zone and new boss Claudio Ranieri will be searching for more consistency from his side, who have lost twice at home and won handsomely away at Goodison Park since he replaced Xisco Munoz in October.

The match will kick-off at 2pm in the UK on Sunday 7 November, with the fixture taking place at Emirates Stadium.

Mikel Arteta has only one absentee right now, with Swiss central midfielder Granit Xhaka sidelined until the new year with a knee ligament injury. Kieran Tierney could be available again after an ankle injury but may have to wait for a start.
For Watford, defenders Kiko Femenia and Francisco Sierralta are both facing late fitness tests, which means starts are likely for Adam Masina and Craig Cathcart.
Arsenal: Ramsdale; Tomiyasu, Gabriel, White, Tavares; Partey, Sambi Lokonga; Saka, Odegaard, Smith-Rowe; Lacazette.
Watford: Foster; Ngakia, Troost-Ekong, Cathcart, Masina; Kucka, Sissoko, Cleverley; Sarr, King, Dennis.
Arsenal haven’t lost since August and their resurgence should continue here against a side who have conceded 18 in ten matches. 3-0 to Arsenal.
