Watford 2-2 Arsenal: 4 talking points in Arsenal playing a draw against Watford on the 5th game-day of the Premier League.
Arsenal had a dynamic start to the game, as they scored two goals in the first half of the game and it felt like Arsenal will seal the game with the lead they had.
However, to Arsenal’s horror, Watford made a comeback to draw the game to level the score by 2-2 to fetch points against The Gunners.
The harm is all on Arsenal as their mistakes allowed it to happen. Moreover, with Watford having a new manager, who had his debut game, Arsenal had a great chance to dominate Watford.
However, in the end, Unai Emery’s side were not able to sustain the two goal lead, since the pressure by Watford was not handled by Watford.
There is a lot to introspect for the North London club, since this came against one of the current vulnerable sides in the Premier League and Arsenal should have sealed the match after the lead they got in the initial minutes of the game.
Thus, we will discuss 4 talking points in the game, after Arsenal played a draw against Watford in the 5th gameweek of the Premier League.
#1 Pierre Emrick Aubameyang maintains scoring spree
One of the positives for Arsenal after this game is Pierre-Emrick Aubameyang is still going strong and has managed to maintain his scoring spree, which could have been the reason for Arsenal’s victory.
In the last 5 games, Aubameyang has managed to find the net in four matches. Hence, contesting for the golden boot award, as he has to defend his title.
Yet, Arsenal did not sustain the lead provided by him till the end, and Watford fetched a point, even though it was not expected by the Hornets, since it seemed Arsenal will manage to limit them even after conceding the first goal.
