‘We must reconnect quickly at Watford’

Arsene Wenger says his team must “reconnect quickly" when they visit Watford on Saturday.

Arsenal produced their most accomplished performance of the season so far when beating Manchester United 3-0 at the start of October.




“The target now is to refocus on what we want to achieve. We play against Watford who have conceded only one goal at home and defend very well. They are a very difficult team to play against so we have to focus to get a positive result on Saturday.

“The level of champions and people who want to fight at the top is urgency. Urgency is something that keeps you alert and we know what will be expected of us.

“We have to be conscious that it will be a different game but the level of urgency is a big part of success and that is what we work on.”

Wenger is impressed with the start that new Watford manager Quique Sanchez Flores has made to life in the Premier League.


“He has done extremely well,” he said. "I have met him [before]. He has adapted very quickly.

“They have a good link with Udinese and Granada, so the owners of Watford have a good knowledge of European football and they always make good decisions.”
