Arsenal press conference live: Mikel Arteta on Tierney injury, Ramsdale call up and Watford

Mikel Arteta is set to face the press ahead of Arsenal’s Premier League clash with Watford at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

The Gunners go into the game in fine form having not lost in any competition since August in a run stretching across nine matches.

It has seen them go from bottom of the table to European contenders within the space of a couple of months, and a win against the Hornets has the potential to leave them level on points with those in the top four.

One of the stars of the recent purple patch has been summer signing Aaron Ramsdale whose fine start to life in North London was rewarded with a call up to the England squad alongside teammate Bukayo Saka.

There was no spot in the senior group though for Ben White or Emile Smith Rowe despite the duo’s own respective good runs of form.

It is currently unclear whether Kieran Tierney will be involved in the international break at all, with the Scotland international nursing an ankle injury that has given Nuno Tavares the chance to come into the side and impress.

Regardless of who is available though Arteta will be keen to ensure that his side get a win to keep momentum going before his players go off to represent their countries.
