Watford break 30-year old jinx, beat woeful Arsenal

Arsenal lost 2-1 to Watford in the return to Premier League action despite taking the lead through the returning Per Mertesacker.

And Watford supporters were sent into raptures yesterday when Cleverley smashed the ball into the net in the 92nd minute to earn them a famous set of three points over Arsene Wenger's men. I have to watch what I say but it's having a bit of cojones, I think the word is, having a bit of nuts.

I came on today and jumped up with Mertesacker - I didn't even have to jump, actually - I nodded it down, the crowd gets up, 'yeah we've got somebody who can win it, ' and they all just backed off.

Watford returned from the global break sitting pretty in eighth after a fantastic start to the season that has seen them lose just once, to Pep Guardiola's rampant Manchester City.

"I think that's what we lacked, especially in the second half. That's my strength, so if you're going to let me do that against you, you're in for a tough afternoon".

And Deeney had plenty to say to Arsenal about the manner of their defeat.

The home side saw a fair bit of the ball but were not creating much but with around 20 minutes to go, winger Richarlison tumbled over in the box, despite very little contact from Hector Bellerin and the referee bought his dive and awarded a penalty. I've praised Neil this season and I think he is one of the best referees in this country, but he didn't make the right call on this occasion. At the end of the day they scored.
