Watford players praise manager Silva after Arsenal win

But Watford equalised from the penalty spot with 19 minutes left after Hector Bellerin was harshly adjudged to have brought down Richarlison before Tom Cleverley pounced on a loose ball inside the box to smash the victor in the second minute of stoppage time. It was not a penalty, it was a creation of the referee.

In the dying moments of the game, Cleverley followed up a loose ball and slotted it past Petr Cech, winning the game for the home side. "No penalty, no goal".

However, Watford - which had scored late goals to pick up points against Swansea City and West Brom in its last two outings - once again demonstrated its new-found resiliency under manager Silva.

"It's important, I didn't see a dive or a simulation". Richarlison, a young boy of 20, is the most fouled player in the Premier League.

Per Mertesacker marked his first Premier League start in 532 days with the opening goal, the German defender converting Grant Xhaka's corner in the 39th minute, to put Arsene Wenger's side on course for a fifth successive win in all competitions.

Xhaka then forced a smart stop from Heurelho Gomes before Hector Bellerin turned a good chance wide of the post as Arsenal looked to add a second before the break.

Moments later came the penalty drama, and then in injury time when Andre Carrillo's shot was blocked Cleverley lashed in a dramatic victor. The fact that it is Merson with these negative comments about the Chilean's potential state of mind should come as no surprise I suppose, because he has not had many nice things to say about his old club in recent years.

"We played very well in the first half but I'm not so happy with the second".

Arsenal were attempting to climb into the top four but instead it is the Hornets who find themselves in the Champions League spots.

"We have one goal, to remain as a Premier League club".
