Jack Wilshere: Arsenal must use AC Milan win as blueprint going forward

The two clubs meet again on Sunday at the Emirates, as Arsenal begin a run of four home games in an attempt to salvage a disappointing season.

They will be out to continue that form at home to Watford and avoid an unwanted record under Arsene Wenger, having previously lost four league games in a row back in March 1995 under caretaker Stewart Houston.

"Watford are one of 10 teams to beat Arsenal on the road this season but, at the Emirates, things should be different", Lawrenson told BBC Sport. But he's not ready to give up hopes of a top-four spot just yet.

Arsenal have some injury concerns heading into the Watford game.

Prior to Sunday's crucial match against Genoa, AC Milan manager Gennaro Gattuso spoke to the assembled media in Milano on Saturday.

Calls for Wenger to step down as Arsenal boss have reached a crescendo after a succession of defeats that included a heavy loss in the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City last month, with Ferguson emerging as an unexpected source of support.

They will be without injured Alexandre Lacazette and Hector Bellerin against Watford while Sead Kolasinac is a doubt with an ankle problem. But Wilshere credited a game plan that emphasised solidity at the back.

'Both teams will try and show on the pitch their best performance and try to get the points. Cathcart, Chalobah, Deulofeu, Hoban, Holebas, Kabasele, Kaboul, Sinclair, Cleverley and Wagué, all feature on that list. Deeney has been instrumental for Watford in their last two games, scoring the victor against West Brom and Everton in a 1-0 win against both sides at home.

"Football is first about values, if I can leave that behind me and that maybe somewhere people respect that Arsenal is [not only] about winning or losing, but as well about what is important in the game".

The Gunners, however, have not failed to score in any of their last 11 games against Watford in all competitions and Wenger is staying positive ahead of the challenge.

Watford have only scored solitary away goal this year.

After signing for Arsenal in January amid much controversy, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang started life at the Emirates in style, scoring his debut goal against Everton in a 5-1 victory. I may be anyway, but I would be even more mad.

Arsenal went ahead after 15 minutes after Mesut Ozil found Mkhitaryan on the left side of the penalty area and the Armenian scored with a deflected shot.
