Arteta speaks on Arsenal team selection for Watford game

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has hinted that he may not make significant changes to the squad for the final Premier League game of the season against Watford.

The Gunners recently succumbed to a 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa on the road and that saw the Villains leapfrog the Hornets into the 17th position on goal difference.

The upcoming game against the Hornets could play a key role in deciding the Premier League fate of three different clubs including Bournemouth and Arteta has said that he won't make excessive changes to the squad.

"I am going to assess the squad, how they're feeling, how everyone has recovered and ideally I want to play as strong a team as I can," He told. "We have to respect that there are a few teams in a relegation battle and we are responsible for that as well."

Aston Villa will be in action against West Ham United on the road on Sunday while Bournemouth have an away trip to Everton. The Cherries are currently three points behind the Villains and Hornets in the standings.
