Video: Full highlights from Arsenal’s 4-1 victory over Watford including amazing Azeez & Nketiah strikes

Arsenal were in top form as they won their second consecutive pre-season match by a 4-1 scoreline.

This time it was Watford who joined us on our training ground for a friendly, and we didn’t have to wait long before Eddie Nketiah picked the ball up on the wide-left, before dribbling past the defender to smash it home.

Our lead didn’t last until the break however, after the Hornets strong pressure in the final third saw them dispossess Willian inside the box, and we had to settle for the 1-1 scoreline going into the break, before a string of changes were made.

Kieran Tierney, Alexandre Lacazette (from the spot) and a fine effort from 18 year-old Miguel Azeez put our newly-promoted Premier League rivals to bed in the second-half however with our opponents powerless to deny us the victory.

Arsenal certainly appear to be finding their goalscoring boots of late, putting their winless trip to Scotland behind them, with the Mind Series up next when we will take on London rivals Chelsea on Sunday before taking on Tottenham a week later.

    Looks like Elneny lost ball in box

      It was Elneny, not Willian.

    2. Declan says:

      Correct but Leno put him on that position and the clip did not show the lead up.

  2. DaJuhi says:

    Elneny will be out of contract next summer and also gone for AFCON. He’s 30 next year and takes non-HG spot. Why isnt being sold?

  3. ACE says:

    El Neny tried a back heel toward in his own
    goal when pressured. He had time to play it
    to his left or simply smash it out for a thrown
    in. The dude has been playing in Europe and
    for his country going on almost ten years, he
    should be good enough to handle such a
    situation.

    Yet again, another costly, high risk/low reward, suicide pass from the keeper to the central midfielder in the box. And this is just pre-season. I guess we have learned nothing at all after conceding at least four goals last year from the same cockup. Could this simply be a matter of poor coaching, adequate preparation or lack of awareness and technical ability?….perhaps all three.

      Did we win?

      1. RFrancis says:

        Although, it was an easy victory, I wasn’t overly impressed by the 4:1 win over our minnow neighbor. I was more interested to see if we were learning as a team to manage games from start to finish, and most importantly, to eliminate careless, unforced errors from our game. This, in my view, is where we need to improve the most – to get top 4.

      Could Elneny not have passed to someone else? Always looking for a reason to blame Leno but you are stuck with him..
