Arsenal took three points and moved up into 5th place in the Premier League after an eventful 1-0 win over Watford at the Emirates this afternoon.
Bukayo Saka had a goal disallowed, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missed a first half penalty, before Emile Smith Rowe scored the only goal of the game in the 56th minute. The visitors were unhappy about the build-up to the goal, believing Arsenal should have given the ball back after they put it out because a player was down injured – but who cares?
An offside Aubameyang denied Odegaard a second after he’d replaced Lacazette, and the final stages were a bit nervier than they should have been. A late red card for the Hornets eased the nerves a bit, and in the end three points are three points.
