Arsenal host Watford at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday evening with manager Arsene Wenger banned from the touchline.
The Gunners boss serves the second game of his four-match ban for pushing the fourth official after being sent off in their last Premier League match against Burnley.
Wenger watched on from the stands as Arsenal thrashed Southampton 5-0 in the FA Cup at St Mary’s on Saturday, but will be out of the dugout as his side, currently in second place, look to close the eight-point gap on leaders Chelsea.

Costel Pantilimon (leg) is out for up to four weeks while Mauro Zarate and Jose Holebas are both suspended and Odion Ighalo could be on his way out of the club.
