“Masterclass Incoming” – why Arsenal fans are buoyant by 30 year old’s first Premier League start

With Tottenham, Manchester United and Chelsea snatching impressive victories, pressure is on Arsenal to match them and bag a vital three points against a struggling Watford outfit.

To do that, Unai Emery must select the best team available to him that will edge him closer to snagging those sumptuous three points. And for the most part, he did. Aside from another start for the much-maligned Granit Xhaka, he’s also granted a surprise start to Mesut Ozil.

The 30 year old playmaker hasn’t started all season due to ill-health and pernicious security concerns. His surprise selection startled, but also elated the Arsenal faithful on Twitter, hoping his creativity and lauded vision will propel the team to a priceless victory at Vicarage Road.
