Ancelotti: Napoli can beat Arsenal with courage, intelligence and passion

This victory was Arsenal's first on the road in the league since the start of February and this was also the Gunners' first clean sheet away from home in the league this season.

- Since returning to the Premier League in 2015-16, Watford have picked up 15 red cards in the competition, more than any other side.

However, Arsenal did grind out a 1-0 win against Watford at Vicarage Road on Monday night so they should take confidence from that result as they head to Naples on Thursday night.

Back in that 2013/14 season Arsenal and Napoli traded 2-0 home wins, so that scoreline has cropped up in all three previous competitive matches between these two.

Nicholas said: "I am very nervous". Tottenham have 67 points, while Arsenal have 66. "It can be a big, big weekend for us". This season Napoli have won four of five home games in Europe and in that sequence of matches they only conceded two goals.

"They've proved they're a quality team and are second in Serie A. From a few years back, we know they're tough to play against and it will be a hard place to go to".

Arsenal made hard work of beating the Hornets after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's early goal. I would go back to front and get the game played higher up the pitch.

Wednesday Severe Weather Threat

But Napoli's hopes of a first Serie A title since 1990 have evaporated as they trail 17 points behind Juventus who need just one more point to wrap up an eighth consecutive Scudetto.

With big games coming every few days, Emery was able to welcome back Switzerland global Granit Xhaka for his first club appearance in over a month.

Javi Gracia said after the game he was unsure why Deeney was sent off but will have been pleased with the effort of his players to remain in the contest.

Daryl Janmaat played a routine pass back to Foster but the Watford goalkeeper did not spot the advancing Aubameyang and his clearance crashed against the striker and into the net.

"I don't think this will affect us at all", he told watfordfc.com. We can be proud of how we played.

Here, we look at how that race is shaping up. "We had more possession, we had decent opportunities to score and we're really disappointed coming off the pitch with nothing from the game".
