Very odd game. I thought Watford we the better team throughout the majority of the first half, with our 2 goals, especially the 2nd coming completely against the run off play. And Watford started off the 2nd half the strongest too with Zabaleta having by far his worst ever performance for us and considerably weakening us as soon as he was brought on for Fredericks.
Their red card and our 3rd goal, again against the run off play was the turning point and after that we were in cruise control and was pretty comfortable.
We played some lovely stuff when we did have our spells with Noble, Rice and Lanzini linking up well.
Anderson was quiet first half but turned it on in the 2nd half. Antonio worked his socks off.
Arnie had a bit of a frustrating game with not a lot going his way. But managed to get a good poacher's goal.
Watford I felt like did hold off a little bit from challenges, trying to avoid picking up any injuries.
Did anyone notice Fredericks wearing that tight blue tape on the back of his leg? So was he potentially not 100% fit when he started the game and we risked playing him, which eventually caught up on him? Wouldn't be surprised knowing us!
My MOTM and probably our player of the month, step forward Mr. Marky Noble
Our fans were absolutely superb today and in good form. Special mention for the funny chant at the woman standing next to our fans who looked like Arsene Wenger!
