After the second international break, we can now get back to more important matters - the Premier League returns.

Arsenal go to Vicarage Road to take on a much-improved Watford outfit and Arsene Wenger will be forced into at least one change before kickoff.

Germany defender Shkodran Mustafi pulled up with a hamstring injury during the international break, so our defence will have to change from the back three that has masterminded four clean sheets on the bounce.

Prime candidates to replace Mustafi would be Rob Holding and Per Mertesacker, although Calum Chambers must be in line for at least a bench appearance. Aside from this enforced swap, Wenger must decide whether Iwobi or Ozil starts the game.

The Nigerian starlet has played well as he came in for the injured German playmaker, but now Ozil is fit and ready, does Wenger go with reputation over form?

Jack Wilshere is also champing at the bit to play more minutes. Minutes need to be spent on the pitch if the England man is to truly show he is ready to last a season. When he does get the chance, he must take it with both hands.

Watford boss Marco Silva will have to do without long-term injured Nathanial Chalobah, with Doucoure and Cleverley most likely to form the central midfield combo. This means a face-off with Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey. This is where the game will be won or lost.

The last game between the two teams was a win for the Hornets at The Emirates last season. In fact, Watford have won two from the last five games. Take into consideration that this was before this season’s transformation and it is clear we have a real test if we want to continue our climb up the table.

With the top4 a mere amount of goal difference away, a win could put real pressure on the current incumbents of this exclusive quartet. We were on a real run before the international break, but has it ruined what momentum we had built?

This can only be answered during the match. Our defence may be shuffled, but if we follow the same pattern that we have done in achieving those clean sheets, then our personnel should be a moot point.

Watford have only lost one game all season - the thrashing at the hands of a brutal Man City side - so they must be respected. If we win, then it should be viewed as a signal that we have a stronger spine than some suggest. If we drop points, the strength of Watford must be taken into consideration.

Silva has crafted a side that can mix it in physical battles, but have an edge up top to take advantage of any openings. Captain Troy Deeney is a handful for any defender, and they also have young Brazilian Richarlison and the talents of Pereyra to add a different kind of threat.

They can be gotten at though, and while our defence has been shining of late, it is our attack that is probably our biggest weapon. Alexandre Lacazette will be looking for his first Premiership away goal, but he has shown at The Emirates that he is lethal given the chance. We also have Alexis Sanchez back in the side and if the Chilean is at the races, then even the finest defenders will struggle to stop him.

The Premiership is back. The Arsenal is back. Let us just enjoy it and marvel at how much better it is than watching international football. It will be better with three points of course.
