Mark Lawrenson states his prediction for Arsenal v Watford

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has ordered his players to go back to basics

After four consecutive defeats in all competitions, the Gunners earned a real positive result in the Europa League against AC Milan, winning 2-0 away in the San Siro.

Arsenal are now in the fourth position in English Premier League with 45 points, 13 points behind the top four position and a successful Europa League campaign seems to be the only way for them to qualify for the Champions League.

The Gunners travelled to Italy for the first leg of this Europa League last-16 tie on the back of four damaging defeats.

Watford manager Javi Gracia also said he does not expect Deeney's comment to have a negative impact on his side's visit to Arsenal.

"We know what we're capable of doing, we just have to try and produce that more consistently".

Arsenal have taken a different approach in tabling a deal for the 26-year-old, the Standard say, with the offer involving performance-based structure due to Wilshere's injury history.

Goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Aaron Ramsey were enough to give Arsene Wenger's side victory over the Italians, who had been on a 13-match unbeaten streak under manager Gennaro Gattuso. "If anyone tells you, you haven't got to prove anything to anyone, they are wrong". When you are a young manager you dream that you want to win every football game. We analysed the game and our first half against Arsenal was not the way we've played over the last two months.

"Never say never. We go there and we play".

Koscielny: we are not confident
We tried but nothing is with us. "They don't actually play good football and they're not great to watch". We miss a lot of things during the game but we need to push more again and again.

"Judgement is judgement. We have to focus on the quality of our game".

"I'm just unhappy that we lose the games; I want to win. We have to be ready".

Fresh terms have been mooted for some time, with the England worldwide having played his way back into favour this season and Arsene Wenger claiming to feel "positive" on talks.

Deeney equalised from the penalty spot when the sides met at Vicarage Road in October before Tom Cleverley hit a late victor and, in a post-match interview, the striker accused Arsenal of lacking "cojones".

Genoa have won three of their last four Serie A games under Davide Ballardini to ease away from the relegation zone. I have a good relationship with Ferguson at the moment, sometimes he sends me a message, yes, when things don't go well.

"Wenger, alongside Sir Alex Fergusson, is the manager I have respected the most in the last 20 years".

"I liked the atmosphere after the game, as the lads were disappointed and angry, eager to get going in training", said Gattuso in his Press conference.
