Watford 2-2 Arsenal: 5 talking points | Premier League 2019/20
#4 Watford resurgence
There’s no sane football fan on the planet that can say with a straight face that Arsenal deserved to win, let alone come away with any points in this match. Quique Sanchez Flores’ return to Vicarage Road was a good day all round. His team put in a tremendous shift to completely and utterly dominate a supposedly top-six team. Arsenal’s top-class players could only watch in horror as they were at the mercy of Watford’s constant attacks.
Overall, Flores’ men edged out with more possession in 53%, but here’s where their domination truly shows. The Hornets attempted 31 shots on goal, in comparison to Arsenal’s measly 7. Watford simply overpowered Arsenal in the midfield, running them ragged for the entirety of the second half. The Hornets may not have won a game this season, but this game will certainly kickstart their campaign.Published 16 Sep 2019, 03:25 IST
