Petr Cech should be back in goal to face Watford after missing out since the first leg against Barcelona when he picked up a calf strain in the dying minutes.

The shot-stopper, who revealed that he is considering international retirement so he can focus on Arsenal, has been missed.

While his stand-in, David Ospina, has performed better than many of us expected, I still can’t shake the feeling that he is about to do something monumentally stupid at any moment.

To have Cech’s experience and calmness back in the side for the most crucial of run-ins will be invaluable.

“I should be fine after the national team break,” Cech told Czech publication MF Dnes last week.

“It’s nothing serious. I’m still motivated and excited for each training [session].

About retiring from international football, he added “The less I have to travel around and play for the national team, the higher the probability that I’ll be able to retain my focus at Arsenal.

“After all, I’m not getting any younger.

“I feel on top for physically, but it’s been the same things all over again since 2002. Way too much travelling around and barely any time for rest. 

“You eventually reach a point in your career when it becomes time to come to a halt and choose a new direction. That point will come after the Euros.”

Arsenal have to try and win all their remaining games while hoping that Leicester don’t. Win all their matches and they should overhaul Spurs, who are three points better off than their north London rivals.

Leicester, however, have a much more insurmountable 11 points more in the bag and even with a game in hand, it’s a big ask for Arsene Wenger’s men.

Earlier it was revealed that Jack Wilshere is closing in on his comeback as well as he gets ready to play for the u21s against Newcastle next week.
