Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny 'may return for Watford trip'

Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny 'may return for Watford trip'”

Chelsea and Arsenal have the chance to demonstrate their Premier League title aspirations when domestic football returns after a two-week break this weekend.

The clash takes place on October 14 at Vicarage road, kick-off is schedule for 17:30 (GMT).

The Gunners will head into the match against the Hornets on Saturday evening on the back of a 2-0 victory over Brighton and Hove Albion at the Emirates Stadium in North London in the league. Antonio Conte's men are hefty 4/11 (1.36) favourites and will be looking to bounce back from a 1-0 loss at home to Manchester City last time out - their second defeat at Stamford Bridge already this season - and should do so easily at Palace.

Nevertheless, Arsene Wenger is ready to call upon the Frenchman for this weekend's visit to Watford with Mustafi certain to miss out.

The Gunners were facing a potential defensive injury crisis, with German global Shkodran Mustafi picking up a thigh injury while on worldwide duty and Calum Chambers carrying a hip problem.

The injury adds to Arsène Wenger's problems, with Laurent Koscielny suffering from an achilles problem and Calum Chambers nursing a groin injury.

Danny Welbeck and Mesut Ozil are expected to be available for selection following injury; but Alexis Sanchez, Alex Iwobi, Olivier Giroud and Alexandre Lacazette have all been involved during the global break.
