[Video Goals] Arsenal 1-2 Watford: Shambolic Gunners Blow Title Chances

By on January 31, 2017

Any hopes of Arsenal winning the title are surely over for another season after a shambolic first half display saw us lose 2-1 to Watford at the Emirates this evening.

Not for the first time this season, we started poorly and got punished when a Younes Kaboul free-kick took a heavy deflection off Aaron Ramsey to wrong foot Petr Cech for 0-1 after just 10 minutes.

Things went from bad to worse as just 3 minutes later it was 2-0. Etienne Capoue was able to charge through a non-existent Arsenal defence and while Cech did well to save his shot the rebound fell to Troy Deeney who had the simple task of making it 2-0.

We got ourselves back in the game early in the second half after Alex Iwobi volleyed home following some excellent work from Alexis Sanchez to make it 1-2 in the 58th minute.

However, the closest we came to finding the equaliser saw Lucas Perez rattle the crossbar late on as Watford held out to secure a 2-1 win which leaves our title hopes in tatters.

To make matters worse, we have a midfield crisis for the Chelsea game on Saturday as Aaron Ramsey was forced off with a hamstring injury while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain finished the game limping.
