Arsenal were made to sweat for it a little, but ultimately were good value for victory against Watford at Vicarage Road.This very entertaining encounter saw four superb goals, beginning with Martin Odegaard and Bakary Saka linking up on the right flank before the former pulled the ball back for the Norwegian to slot home.Then came the coup de gras. Kiko clipped a ball to the back post which hung in the air invitingly for Cucho Hernandez to launch at the ball with a bicycle kick that powered low past Aaron Ramsdale’s left hand.
Arsenal took the lead once more on the half-hour mark when Saka exchanged passes with Lacazette before powering an effort inside the top right hand corner with Ben Foster diving the other way.The game seemed effectively over as a contest eight minutes into the second half when Odegaard flicked the ball to Lacazette on the edge of the area and he laid the ball back for Gabriel Martinelli to curl an effort just inside the top left corner.Moussa Sissoko ensured a nervous ending for Arsenal when he beat Ben White in the box before slipping a shot past Ramsdale. The final minutes was very thrilling as Watford kept presssing to score a third goal but time wasn’t on their side. Arsenal really kept their composure and held on till the referee ended the proceedings. Good game and a good day for the Gunners..
