With Calum Chambers also sidelined through injury it could mean Arsenal go into the Watford match without four senior defenders.

Low's men put on a show, storming to a 5-1 victory, but Arsenal defender Mustafi was forced off in the 36th minute with a thigh injury.

Arsenal will be looking to maintain their winning run when they take on Watford FC in the Premier League this weekend.

Danny Welbeck and Mesut Ozil are expected to be available for selection following injury; but Alexis Sanchez, Alex Iwobi, Olivier Giroud and Alexandre Lacazette have all been involved during the global break.

Kolasinac only managed one half while in action for Bosnia-Herzegovina against Belgium due to a hip injury, while Koscielny is set for a late fitness test on an Achilles injury.

Wenger explained: "Koscielny has a definite final test tomorrow". Sanchez won't be back with us until tomorrow.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger reveals that Skhodran Mustafi will be missing for up to six weeks with a thigh injury. For Arsenal, they face a tricky trip to Watford to face a deceptively unsafe side who are well-drilled, industrious, and fit under the tutelage of Marco Silva.

"He didn't play in their first game and we lost him in the second - we have to cope with that now".

But Watford are yet to win any of their four home games in any competition this season, while Arsenal - 7/10 (1.70) to win the match outright - have won four on the spin ahead of their Saturday teatime trip to Vicarage Road, where they won 3-1 last season.

"Jack is in the best form I've seen him in for a long time", Wenger said.

Alexis Sanchez will be assessed when he returns from worldwide duty after he received "special treatment" following Chile's 3-0 defeat to Brazil.
