Watford welcome Arsenal to Vicarage Road as Roy Hodgson's side look to build on the point they gained at Old Trafford last weekend.

The Hornets bounced back from their 4-1 humbling against Crystal Palace last midweek to move a point closer to safety after Everton's defeat to Man City.

However, the Toffees have two games in hand on Watford and time is running out for Hodgson to mastermind a great escape in Hertfordshire.

In the meantime, here's how they could line up this weekend...

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Ben Foster (GK) - Brings an assuredness to the last line of Watford defence after being absent with injury earlier this season.

Kiko Femenia (RB) - Only Emmanuel Dennis has more assists than the Spaniard this term (4).

Craig Cathcart (CB) - An ever-present at Watford with his experience in defence.

Samir (CB) - Arguably been the most consistent defender out of the rotating cast of Watford centre-back this season.

Hassane Kamara (LB) - Has made the left-back position his own after arriving from Nice in January.

2. Midfielders

Moussa Sissoko (CM) - Could make a strong case for the Frenchman being Watford's Player of the Season.

Imran Louza (CM) - Boasts the rare quality of being defensively sound while also being calm and composed on the ball.

Tom Cleverley (CM) - More commonly associated with his industry in midfield, but his range of passing has been impressive recently.

3. Forwards

Joao Pedro (RW) - With Ismaila Sarr injured, Joao Pedro will need to put in a good display.

Josh King (ST) - The former Bournemouth man has failed to score since the end of November.

Emmanuel Dennis (LW) - The Hornets' talisman this season, with nine league goals as we head into the business end of the season.
