Arsenal has returned to the top four in the Premier League as goals from Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli pushed them to an entertaining 3-2 win over Watford at Vicarage Road.
It was quite a victory more convincing for the Gunners than the scoreline shows, as their young and vibrant attacking players shone to punish a Hornets side that, to their credit, fought gamely until the very end.
For the records, Emmanuel Dennis scored a goal after the first 17 seconds however, it was ruled out for offside, though an amazing finish from Cucho Hernandez canceled out Odegaard’s opener, and Moussa Sissoko put up a stunning finish when he minimized the deficit to 3-2 with only a few minutes left.
However, a draw would have more than the Hornets deserved, and their fight against relegation from the Premier League seems like an increasingly uphill battle.
On their part, the Gunners have their top-four destiny in their hands with three sublime finishes from Odegaard, Saka, and Martinelli. All of whom could have great futures at the Emirates displayed the quality Mikel Arteta can rely on as the season gradually comes to an end.
Recall that two players had missed the most recent 2-1 win over Wolves, with Takehiro Tomiyasu sustaining a calf injury and Emile Smith Rowe failing to appear with sickness.
The Gunners’ No. 10 was somewhat expected to return to the team, and possibly the early lineup in place of Gabriel Martinelli, inasmuch as he was for the second time absent from the squad due to Covid complications, so the Brazilian started.
Regardless of the time off, there would be no return for Tomiyasu, with Cedric warming his place at right-back for the fourth consecutive game.
Futballnews reports that after Watford had a netted ball disallowed just a few minutes after the match began, Arsenal discovered their feet and scored an exciting opener when Martin Odegaard passed the ball through to Bukayo Saka, who then cut it back for the Norwegian to gently caress into the bottom corner.
Having thought that was all from the team, Moussa Sissoko pounced on some slack defending to reduce the goal line, putting up a nervy finish.
