Match Report: Watford and Arsenal

Arsenal have played as Watford's guest (2-2) even though they had a two-goal lead in the first leg of the match at Vicarage Road.

 The result was unlocked in the 21st minute when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang conceded a clear pass from Sead Kolasinac and beat the opposing goalkeeper.

It didn't take long and the Gunners doubled the lead.  Nicolas Pepe provided a good assist to Aubameyang, who proved accurate from close range.

With a double lead, the teams went to rest, with the locals clear that they had to change things up in the second faction.

And they did just that.  After a mistake by Arsenal players, Tom Cleverley scored to give his team hope (53 ′).

After consecutive home runs, the referee awarded a penalty after a David Luiz error, with Roberto Pereyra correct from the white point (80 ′) and equalizing the score.

The locals tried to win the game in the remaining minutes but failed to score the third goal.

This was Arsenal's second draw counting two wins and one loss.  Watford have recorded only the second draw, having suffered three times.
