Arsenal moved into fourth place in the Premier League table after defeating Watford 3-2 on Sunday.

Watford thought that they took lead in the first 20 seconds but the effort from Emmanuel Dennis was ruled offside. Martin Odegaard scored the visitors’ first goal after flicking the ball to Saka and running into the box to finish Saka’s cross.

Cucho Hernandez’s acrobatic flying volley from Kiko Femenia’s cross brought Watford back into the game. The bicycle kick was the best goal of the game. Later, Arsenal restored their lead with Saka scoring for them in the 30th minute of the game.

Saka now has around 13 Premier League goal contributions this season. Arsenal went into the first half with a one-goal lead. Later, in the second half, Arsenal doubled their lead with Gabriel Martinelli’s blostered shot into the top corner. Saka was again involved in the third goal of the Arsenal.

At the end, Watford managed to score with the help of Sissoko in the 87th minute, making the score 2-3, but did not manage to score the equaliser.

Arsenal has moved up to fourth place, overtaking Manchester United after sucessfully beating Watford.
