According to The Athletic, Watford will hop over the fence at London Colney for a behind-closed-doors kickabout with what’s left of Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal squad.
While the Gunners have 10 players away at the World Cup, the rest are due to return to training at London Colney tomorrow having had some time to rest and recuperate since the win over Wolves two weeks ago.
It’s unclear what day the Hornets, who are currently training in Spain, will visit but it’s likely to be in the middle of the week. The Gunners are then due to fly to Dubai for a warm-weather training camp incorporating matches with Lyon and AC Milan on the 8th and 13th December respectively.
Arsenal will then host Juventus at the Emirates on the 17th December and could squeeze in another match at the training ground before resuming the Premier League campaign against West Ham on Boxing Day.
