Arsenal 1-2 Watford

Our Premier League title hopes suffered a big blow as we were beaten by Watford on a disappointing night in north London.
With Chelsea travelling to Liverpool, it had felt prior kick off like there might be an opportunity to make up ground on the leaders.
But those thoughts were quickly dispelled when Watford scored twice in the opening 13 minutes through Younes Kaboul and Troy Deeney.
The Gunners just could not get going in the first half, and were indebted to Petr Cech as he made saves to deny Sebastian Prodl and then Daryl Janmaat.
Arsène Wenger’s side were much improved after the interval, and pulled themselves back into the game when Alex Iwobi slotted home after good work by Alexis.
But despite going close through Nacho Monreal and Lucas in the closing stages, we could not find a way back into the game, slipping to a damaging defeat.
It makes a positive result in Saturday’s trip to Stamford Bridge even more important as we seek to haul in the west Londoners.
