Arsenal Whacks Watford

Arsenal were rampant in the English Premier League against Watford hammering them 4-0 at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.  In order to keep the hopes of winning the title alive, the Gunners have to have a good run in the league to pick up a string of points and this seems like a positive start.  The match clearly belonged to the hosts from the very beginning.

Alexis Sanchez opened the scoring for the home side shortly after the first kick of the match when he hit home a rebound from his shot which was initially saved by Heruelho Gomes.  Arsene Wenger’s boys brought their passing game and spent lots of time in the visitors’ half.  The second goal came from Alex Iwobi who scored in the 37th minute after receiving a square pass from Sanchez.  

This would be the last goal of the first half and the score was 2-0 at the break.  The Hornets struggled to get into the game and Wenger’s boys took full advantage.  They started the second half just as they had finished the first scoring two minutes after the break when Hector Bellerin made it three.  Quique Sanchez Flores’s men were not on their game and just continued conceding.

Bellerin was a problem for the away defence as he was the fastest sprinter in the match and was at the heart of each and every one of Arsenal’s attacking moves.  Theo Walcott who was substituted into the match added the final nail in the coffin when he scored in the 90th minute after a well-constructed team goal.  Arsenal pick up all three points and have hope in their title charge while Watford have hit a bit of a speed hump in the quest to reach the crucial 40 points needed to avoid relegation.
