Iwobi Tastes Action As Ruthless Arsenal Beat Watford 3-0 At The Emirates
Super Eagles forward, Alex Iwobi tasted 66 minutes action as Arsenal put up good preparation for their Europa League decider and halted a run of three straight Premier League defeats with a 3-0 win over Watford at the Emirates.
Shkodran Mustafi headed an eighth-minute opener and Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang fired a belated second just before the hour-mark, before Henrikh Mkhitaryan added a third 13 minutes from time as Arsene Wenger’s selection gamble with AC Milan in mind paid off.
The hosts had escaped punishment for a profligate first half and were indebted to Petr Cech for saving a Troy Deeney penalty just minutes after Aubameyang struck, the goalkeeper finally recording his 200th Premier League clean sheet.
With the 3-0 win, the Gunners maintained their sixth position on the Premier League log, but moved to 48 points from 30 games in the matches played so far in the ongoing season in England.
