Watford XI: Gomes; Nyom, Prödl, Cathcart, Ake; Ben Watson, Mario Suárez, Abdi, Capoue; Ighalo, Deeney.
Arsenal dominated the game since its early stages and managed to score an early goal as Alexis Sanchez opened the scoring in the fourth minute.
The domination continued as well as the fantastic performance. In the 38th minute, Alex Iwobi converted Sanchez’s pass into the net, making the scoreline 2-0.
Three minutes into the second half, Hector Bellerin’s deflected shot sealed for Arsenal their third goal.
Arsenal substitutions proved to be effective. Joel Campbell, who came on for Alexis Sanchez, has assisted substitute Theo Walcott who scored Arsenal’s fourth goal in the last minute of the game.
Elneny picked up a booking in the 84th minute for bringing down Nordin Amrabat. Overall, the Egyptian midfielder’s contribution in the game was great, as his passing and delivering were on point.
