EDDIE NKETIAH. 8.0. Excellent work getting right into the thick of things from the moment he was introduced. Showed superb strength, agility, and intelligence with and without the ball. incredible move in the 75th minute to spring the two-man breakaway and selfless to pass it to Aubameyang, even though Aubameyang couldn’t take it. Continued to thrive in this attack throughout the match.. SUB. Arsenal

SEAD KOLASINAC. 6.0. Far too many instances of him not closing down his man and it always gave Watford room to put together a dangerous ball into the box. Seemed to catch on though, and began to limit that space.. SUB. Arsenal

Questionable defensive work and even more questionable to give away that foul in stoppage time just outside the box. Had his positive moments, but the big negative ones are always more noticeable.. SUB. Arsenal. LUCAS TORREIRA. 5.9

REISS NELSON. 7.1. Good work getting involved and not letting Pepe’s exit hurt. It was a seamless transition. Showcased more excellent attacking play as the match wore on, using the weariness of this Watford defense against them.. SUB. Arsenal
