The act would soon come back to bite him as teammate David Luiz gave away his second penalty of the season. The Brazilian unfortunately tripped Roberto Pereyara 10 minutes later, who converted from the spot to add to Tom Cleverly’s strike.
With the match in the balance and about 15 minutes left in the game, both teams chased victory. However, Watford’s attempt seemed more convincing of the two. Despite showing clear signs of fatigue, the hosts created numerous chances to walk away with the winner. Unfortunately, they failed to find the back of the net.
By the end of play both teams shared a point each. Quite the comeback after being 2-0 down. However, they will regret not being clinical in the last 10 minutes.
Arsenal are now in 7th with 8 points, the same as the four teams above them. Watford, despite their encouraging showing, remain at the bottom with only 2 points to show for.
