Arsenal managed to get only their second Premier League away win since late November, although we were hardly convincing.
Our side was not only gifted the opening goal after a shocker from Ben Foster, who literally gave the ball to Aubameyang inside the box for the opener, but with only 10 minutes of the match played we were also given a personnel boost.
You will hardly be shocked by the news that Troy Deeney was the man to pick up a red card tonight, but trying to be neutral I feel like it may not have been as bad as it was treated. The England striker seemed to throw his arm up a tad when running past Torreira in the middle of the park, and was shown a straight red.
Despite such a great start for our side, and the given advantages, Watford had much of the possession and a number of chances, and our boys struggled to command any real dominance at all.
The game looked like it was going to give us a painful ending, with our side looking overly likely to hold onto our record of being the only English league side to not have a clean sheet away from home, but thankfully we have shifted that one tonight.
Andre Gray came awfully close after getting in behind the defence and rounding the keeper, only for Maitland-Niles to come to our rescue, and in reality if he still had his strike-partner on the pitch they would more than likely have scored at least once…
Am I being too harsh on the overall turnout of the match? Did Arsenal need that extra man advantage? Is it time to start feeling confident of a top four finish?
