Player Ratings: Arsenal 1-0 Watford

Player Ratings: Arsenal 1-0 Watford

A win is a win, but not scoring on a Watford side with 10 men poses some questions. Regardless, we walked away with some much-needed points and a few positive talking points during a push for a top four spot in the table. Starting 11: Bernd Leno – 8.5 MOTM Another solid performance from Leno kept us in the game. Granted the game should never have been in question, but a couple great saves and a just good enough back-line was the reason for the clean sheet. Shkodran Mustafi – 6.5 Shaky when holding with the makeshift backline, and got caught out of position on counter attacks often....

Troy Deeney’s comments about Arsenal come back to haunt him

Deeney sees red and learns the meaning of karma Arsenal secured the three points they needed at Vicarage Road against Watford. It was not a vintage performance by the Gunners. However, considering the team’s road problems this season, a win and a clean sheet are a welcome change. The highlight of the match was Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s goal in the tenth minute of play.

In addition to the goal and the victory, there was another moment in this match that...
