Watford 2-3 Arsenal: unscathed past Vicarage Road and on to the Champions League

Published

on

Arsenal continued their upward trend at Vicarage Road, with Arteta’s side beating Watford 3-2 and claiming four straight wins that put them on track for the Champions League.

Arsenal are on a very good moon and the latest proof came on Sunday afternoon (6/3) when the Londoners beat Watford 3-2 away to enter the top 4, leaving them dreaming of a Champions League appearance in the new season.

In fact, it was the Gunners’ fourth consecutive success, although the Wasps, for their part, have been unable to halt their relegation which takes them to the second division, knowing that they have suffered their eighth consecutive home defeat in the Premier League.

The game

The game in the first few minutes wasn’t impressive at all as both teams found a goal. Arsenal went first, Edegaard receiving an assist from Saka and executing a sliding cross on Foster in the 5th minute (0-1). Watford reacted immediately when Hernandez leveled a Femenia cross with a terrible scissor to make it 1-1 in the 11th minute.

After half an hour of fighting, the gunners again took the lead, again in cooperation. This time, Lacazette was the creator and Saka the enforcer to send the ball to the left corner of Foster’s goal with a pitch in wide area to make it 2-1.

In the 52nd minute, Lacazette served for the second time in the game and Martinelli made it 3-1 with an incredible right foot shot from wide of the large area, with Watford reducing to 2-3 with a Sissoko spot in 87′ but failing to catch with the remaining minutes to do something more to change their fate and get out of the relegation zone.

At the same time, Arteta’s players celebrated their fourth straight league victory and are optimistic about the future when it comes to finishing fourth, which gives the last ticket to the new Champions League.

WATFORD: Foster, Femenia, Cathcart, Samir, Kamara, Sissoko, Luza (64′ Sieralta), Cleverley (89′ Kagebe) Hernandez, Dennis, Pedro

ARSENAL: Ramsdale, Soares, White, Gabriel, Tierney, Partey, Jacka, Saka, Edegaard (90′ Holding), Martinelli (73′ Pepe), Lacazette (80′ Enketia)

Cantona: ‘I offered Woodward to be Manchester United chairman but they didn’t want me’

Eric Cantona said he had suggested Ed Woodward become “President of Football” at Manchester United and while Sir Alex Ferguson was positive about the prospect, the Red Devils’ former vice-chairman and chief executive and club officials said no.

THE Eric Canton He gave an interview to Athletic in which, among other things, he mentioned his ambition to serve Manchester United from another position, that of President.

The French Red Devils legend stressed that Sir Alex Ferguson was on board with the idea, but not the club’s former chief executive and vice-chairman Ed Woodward.

Woodward is great at marketing but not at football. I think they should have a CEO, a CEO who is responsible for administration/marketing, and then a football chairman who is responsible for all football decisions.

So I offered to become the “President of Football”. First I met Ferguson to tell him and he said it was a great idea. He met me in Woodward, we met a few times but they didn’t want me. I still believe me or someone else dealt with football issues. It has to be someone from the team who knows football and the club‘ said Ed Woodward.

Cristiano is an example for all of us who don’t have enough quality to understand that with hard work you can compete with the best. I have a lot of respect for him and I had the opportunity to tell him that.

In the past there was a time when because of the rivalry between the teams, I went to greet him and he didn’t greet me.

There was a confrontation that was never disclosed, but in the Ballon d’Or dressing room we had a fight because I greeted everyone and he didn’t greet me because of what was between Barcelona and Real.” said the Brazilian.
