Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez is arguably the form player in the Premier League, having scored nine goals in his last five games for club and country including two in the stunning 3-0 win over Manchester United in the last round of the Premier League.

There were concerns about Sanchez's fitness when he left Arsenal for international duty with Chile, but he scored three goals in two games for his country and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said Sanchez has texted him to say he is OK, fitness-wise.

Arsenal visits Watford in today's late game, with big wins over Leicester and United raising hopes of a title challenge this season. Centre back Laurent Koscielny could return from injury for Arsenal.
