You have to say that the Gunners did that very well today with a comfortable and impressive win over Watford. The players would certainly have been feeling some pressure themselves, especially in front of an Emirates crowd that has been showing their anger, especially after we were beaten by the Hornets in the FA Cup just three weeks ago.
So a fast start was always going to help and that was just what we got and it was rewarded after just five minutes when Iwobi found Alexis Sanchez in the box. The Chilean’s header was saved but he was on his toes to slot in the rebound.
Arsenal controlled the game well after that and created chances but it was not until half time was near when we got the second with a great move down the right. The roles were reversed as Sanchez cut the ball back and Iwobi finished well.
Almost straight after the restart a third goal from a deflected Bellerin shot sealed the points and Arsenal rarely looked like conceding although there were a few hairy moments in the last 25 minutes. They were especially hairy for me as I had a great bet by phone this morning on both Chelsea and Arsenal to win by at least three goals for a tenner! With nearly 300 quid winnings I may just reinvest and try to become a casino legend while my lucks in! But I wasn’t too worried as there could have been more Arsenal goals as well, and Walcott finally settled my nerves with a fourth goal in the final minutes from a Campbell cross.
One down seven to go.
