Thanks for joining us. Goodbye!!
Arsenal started off brilliantly and took the lead thanks to a Santi cazorla penalty. Alexis Sanchez then doubled the Gunners' lead with a lucky finish past Heurelho Gomes. Just minutes later Mesut Ozil made it three with a clinical header and Arsenal headed into the break 3 goals up.
Watford then showed some semblance of a comeback. New signing Pereyra got one back but Mazzari's side were then unable to find their way past an inspired Petr Cech.
Arsenal, now with their first win of the season move upto 7th spot and will be looking to build on this result.
