ARSENAL boss Unai Emery has dropped an early hint over his starting XI for this weekend’s Premier League game with Watford.
The Gunners go into the clash at the Emirates on Saturday (3pm) having won their last six matches in all competitions.
The latest of which saw Arsenal knock Championship outfit Brentford out of the Carabao Cup last night thanks to a 3-1 victory.
Danny Welbeck netted twice in that clash as he put pressure on Alexandre Lacazette, who also scored, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Welbeck is yet to start a league match this season though did score when coming on against West Ham last month.
Though Emery seemed to suggest the former Manchester United man will stay on the bench against the Hornets.
“Each match is very important for the players, they can show us and show every supporter and every person their performance,” Emery said.
“Tonight, it's a good performance from every player and also Danny Welbeck, he worked with two goals, helping us.
“And for Saturday, he's also another player that I can try, to help the first XI because he's doing very well, with a big commitment.

“But also, I want the first XI with the performance and I want other players [on the bench], when I am looking back I want to see good players looking forward to help the game for us.
“He [Welbeck] gave us his quality and also his commitment every day.
“Danny Welbeck is working with this commitment and when he is playing also with a performance like today, and I think he’s helping the team and we want this.”
Welbeck himself was glad to find the net again.
