Arsenal just about scraped past 10-man Watford 1-0 at Vicarage Road to go back to fourth position in the Premier League table.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the only goal of the game, which was surprisingly thrilling until the last second even though the home side played more than 75 minutes with 10 men.

The game began with the Hornets putting the Gunners’ defence under pressure. Right there we thought the tone of the game had been set.

However, in the 10th minute, just as when Ben Foster was trying to clear his line following a Daryl Janmaat back pass, Aubameyang came from the blind side and charged his clearance. The ricochet ended up in the back of the net to hand the away side a lead.

Seconds later, Troy Deeney elbowed Lucas Torreira off the ball and referee felt it was enough to send the Watford captain for an early shower.

The home side did fight their way back and created few good chances, but Bernd Leno was having a good day in goal. Ainsley Maitland-Niles made a goal-saving block late on the preserve the Gunners’ lead.

On the other hand, Unai Emery’s men were wasteful when space was provided to them on the counter.

All in all, Arsenal managed to get the three points that would give them some confidence going into that tough away game at Napoli.
