Arsenal kept the pressure on league leaders Manchester City, courtesy of an impressive 3-0 win away at Watford on Saturday.


Starting with a full-strength XI, the Gunners were pushed all the way in the first-half by a hard-working and disciplined Watford side.

Alexis Sanchez tested Heurelho Gomes with a powerful effort.

However, the Hornets were always a threat on the break in the first-half, with Troy Deeney and then top-scorer Odion Ighalo going close.

Aaron Ramsey had a fine chance to open the scoring, only to fire over the bar from point-blank range.

After the break, the Gunners started to dominate as the home side tired. The opening goal eventually came on 62 minutes, when a superb passing move saw Mesut Ozil tackled in the box, leaving Sanchez to blast home in off the post.

Six minutes later, sub Olivier Giroud doubled the visitors’ advantage after more clever play from Ozil.

Ramsey then netted a deserved third as the north Londoners powered to victory.

The win sees Arsenal stay just two points behind league leaders Man City, and with Sanchez and Ozil once again shining, a genuine title tilt looks on. As for  Quique Sanchez Flores, his side’s lack of a cutting edge will no doubt concern the Spaniard.
