Arsenal have gone back into fourth place after edging past Watford, who had captain Troy Deeney sent off 11 minutes into the game.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang gave Arsenal the lead inside ten minutes after Ben Foster’s attempted goal kick came off his leg at close range and ended up in the back of the net.
Not long after, Deeney was given his marching orders by referee Craig Pawson after catching Lucas Torreira in the face with an elbow, and despite seeing plenty of chances in an entertaining encounter, Watford were unable to battle back for a point.
The result has seen Arsenal keep a clean sheet away from home for the first time this season and puts them back above Chelsea into fourth on goal difference, while the Gunners also have a game in hand over the Blues.
