After slipping to a 2-1 home defeat to Watford, Gunners title hopes are slipping further. Early in the game, in space of just three minutes, Watford did the damage at the Emirates. Kaboul in the 10th minute opened the scoring and brought visitors into a lead while Deeney three minutes later shocked Arsenal, by scoring and lifting the score to 2-0.
Wenger’s men as usually had a ball possesion and more chances but they’ve failed to convert the same into something more and to pull a comeback. Only Iwobi in the 58th managed to reduce the score but until the end of the game, nothing changed.
