first_img Press Association Arsenal moved to second in the Barclays Premier League with an impressive 3-0 win at Watford. Theo Walcott was again deployed as a central striker, supported by the all-action Sanchez and playmaker Mesut Ozil. Arsenal put the pressure on from kick off, with Sanchez’s rising 25-yard effort forcing Watford keeper Heurelho Gomes into a smart save on nine minutes. At the other end, Petr Cech had to be alert to beat away a fierce drive from Troy Deenay after the forward had won the ball just outside the penalty area. Despite holding a high line, Watford also offered plenty of attacking threat with the physicality of Deenay a problem for the Arsenal defence. The Hornets, though, were cut open on 28 minutes. Clever footwork from Ozil played Sanchez into space, and his lofted, angled pass fell at the far post to Ramsey, but at point-blank range, the Wales midfielder sent a sidefoot effort up off the top of the crossbar. Watford then broke quickly as Odion Ighalo raced clear into the right side of the Arsenal penalty area, but tumbled under pressure from Nacho Monreal, stabbing the ball wide before appealing in vane for a penalty. Just before half-time, Cech raced off his line to clear a long pass from Etienne Capoue which the Watford players claimed was with his arm rather than shoulder, but referee Mike Jones waved away the appeals. The Gunners, who had beaten Manchester United before the international break, were made to work hard for their victory following a spirited effort by the well-organised Hornets. Ultimately, though, the technical superiority of Arsene Wenger’s men proved enough, as in-form Alexis Sanchez netted after a breakaway on 62 minutes, with goals from substitute Olivier Giroud and Aaron Ramsey helping to keep Arsenal only two points behind leaders Manchester City. Watford upped the tempo following the restart, out-fighting Arsenal in all areas. Capoue led the charge and was screaming for a penalty after going down under a challenge from Francis Coquelin. The referee, however, waved played on, and Arsenal immediately broke to take the lead on 62 minutes. Sanchez dashed down the left and fed Santi Cazorla at the edge of the Watford box. His slide-rule pass picked out Ozil, who was brought down by a diving challenge from Craig Cathcart. Before the referee could point to the penalty spot, Chile forward Sanchez had lashed the loose ball in off the far post for his 10th goal in six appearances for club and country. Before Watford could mount a recovery, Arsenal had doubled their lead. Ozil was again involved, cutting a deflected pass back through the six-yard box where Giroud, who had only just replaced Walcott, swept the ball into the roof of the net on 68 minutes. Ramsey – on target for Wales in their midweek Euro 2016 qualifier against Andorra – finally got back on the Arsenal goal trail when he tapped home a deflected effort, off defender Ikechi Anya, following a darting run down the right by Hector Bellerin in the 73rd minute. TWEET OF THE MATCH “Game of 2 halves: one awful, one terrific. But overall, an excellent away win. #afc” – Piers Morgan @piersmorgan PLAYER RATINGS Watford Heurelho Gomes: 6 Allan Nyom: 6 Sebastien Prodl: 6 Craig Cathcart: 6 Nathan Ake: 6 Odion Ighalo: 6 Ben Watson: 6 Ikechi Anya: 6 Troy Deeney: 8 Almen Abdi: 6 Etienne Capoue: 7 Subs Steven Berghuis: 6 Victor Ibarbo: 6 Juan Paredes: 6 Arsenal Petr Cech: 7 Hector Bellerin: 7 Per Mertesacker: 6 Laurent Koscielny: 6 Nacho Monreal: 7 Santi Cazorla: 7 Francis Coquelin: 7 Aaron Ramsey: 7 Mesut Ozil: 8 Alexis Sanchez: 7 Theo Walcott: 6 Subs Olivier Giroud: 7 Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: 6 Mikel Arteta: 6 STAR PLAYER Ozil is so often maligned, but the German playmaker was at the heart of all things positive for Arsenal at Vicarage Road. His understanding with Sanchez is bordering on telepathic, and it was Ozil’s deft touches which helped set up the opening goals. Arsenal’s record signing will, of course, still find plenty of critics due to his somewhat lackadaisical style – but they should watch a rerun of this match in slow motion to truly appreciate Ozil’s contribution. MOMENT OF THE MATCH Few teams turn defence to attack as well as the Gunners. Their opening goal on 62 minutes was a case in point. No sooner had Watford’s attack broken down with a penalty appeal turned away, then Sanchez was scampering down the left. Roll the clock on about 60 seconds and the Chile forward was wheeling away in celebration. Clinical. VIEW FROM THE BENCH Quique Sanchez Flores set his side up with two banks of four and after looking to be holding a high line, the hosts soon proved difficult to break down. Arsenal tried too many quick passes in the first half when a more direct approach was needed to release Walcott. Eventually, though, Arsenal’s patience paid off as a quick break saw Sanchez give them the lead, with Giroud and Ramsey making sure of another impressive away win for Arsene Wenger’s side. MOAN OF THE MATCH Arsenal’s technical superiority again proved enough to earn them victory, but questions remain about character as at the start of the second half, the Gunners were outfought by the Hornets. While it did not ultimately matter here, it could just yet prove their Achilles heel over the course of the championship race. WHO’S UP NEXT? Stoke v Watford (Barclays Premier League, Saturday October 24) Arsenal v Bayern Munich (Champions League, Tuesday October 20) Caerphilly-born midfielder Ramsey was already on a high heading into the game. Wales qualified for Euro 2016 last weekend and the 24-year-old is eagerly awaiting the birth of his first child, so an Arsenal victory and a well-taken goal provided even more reason to be cheerful. “It’s been a good week for me personally,” he told Sky Sports 1. “Obviously going to a major tournament with Wales, and then coming back to winning ways in the league. “It was a difficult first half. They pressed us really well and made it difficult for us but we stuck to the gameplan and finally our quality showed in the second half. “It’s been a while since I scored for Arsenal so I’ll take anything at the moment and I’m just delighted the ball went into the back of the net. “I think we took a lot of belief from last season. The back end of last year… I thought we carried on from there really, and the result against Manchester United (3-0 home victory) reinstated that belief and we carried on from where we left off before the international break.” last_img read more

Much worse.One goal was scant reward for Leipzig’s dominance and with his main frontmen Harry Kane and Son Heung-min sidelined with long-term injuries, it is difficult to see how Spurs boss Jose Mourinho canturn this tie around in Germany in three weeks’ time.How Tottenham could do with a Greavesy right now.The Lilywhites’ legendary marksman netted 266 goals in 379 appearances in just over eight years for the club between December 1961 and March 1970.He also played for Chelsea and West Ham and his final total of 357 goals is more top-flight strikes than any other player.5 The Liverpool target netted to leave Spurs scrambling for a place in the quarter finalsCredit: EPAHis family attended the game last night – where Kane presented them with a gift before kick-off.Quite what the old master would have made of it is anybody’s guess.For Mourinho, his players and Tottenham it was worrying as their lack of cutting edge prevented them from getting a real foothold in the match.Still, at least Tottenham fans were treated to a new light-show inside the stadium before kick-off.It must be comforting for Spurs followers to know that while their club failed to land an out-and-out striker in the January, they did manage to sign an electrician.Furious Dele Alli Slams His Boots Down after being subbed off for Tottenham against RB LeipzigYou could not help but wonder if Spurs stars were dazzled by the bright lights as they made a trance-like start.And they were lucky not to fall behind as Leipzig created four excellent chances in the opening NINETY SECONDS.First, Czech striker Patrik Schick drilled a shot wide from the edge of the area.Then after Timo Werner had seen his close range effort cannon off Spurs defender Davinson Sanchez, former Manchester City loanee Angelino’s shot ricocheted off Hugo Lloris’ leg and onto the post – not that the Spurs keeper knew much about it.And when the Germans switched play to the other flank, Werner’s shot was smothered by Lloris at his near post.Shell shocked Spurs struggled to get out of their own half in the opening stages.5 Lucas Moura led the line but was unable to find a way throughCredit: AFPWhen they did finally manage to get into Leipzig’s box, Steven Bergwijn’s shot was parried by keeper Peter Gulasci, whose only first-team appearances in a previous five-year stint at Liverpool came on loan spells at Hereford, Tranmere and Hull.It proved to be only a brief respite as Leipzig went close again before the break when Schick headed wide from a corner and Werner had another shot saved by Lloris.The game was halted at the start of the second half when Leipzig fans threw toilet rolls onto the pitch.This was not in response to Tottenham’s first-half display – but a protest against rising ticket prices.Spurs then created their best chance of the night so far when Serge Aurier’s cross into the box was flicked towards goal by Lucas Moura.Gulacsi got down well to keep it out and unfortunately for Mourinho, Bergwijn skewed the rebound wide.Tottenham were looking stronger than they did before the break, but they fell behind when Ben Davies sent Konrad Laimer crashing to the ground as he tried to intercept Werner’s ball into the box.Turkish referee Cuneyt Cakir pointed to spot and Werner netted the resulting penalty to give Leipzig the edge in the 57th minute.It was no more than the visitors deserved and they could have had a second moments later when Werner brilliantly dummied Angelino’s ball inside, but Schick’s shot was turned away by Lloris.5 The likes of Giovani Lo Celso were left frustratedCredit: Getty ImagesMost Read In SportTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battle’I ACCEPT’McGregor accepts Silva fight at UFC catchweight of 176lbs in huge super-fightTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedA CUT ABOVEMike Tyson shows two-inch cut ‘picked up in training’ ahead of boxing returnPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’Mourinho took action by subbing Gedson Fernandes and Dele Alli with Tanguy Ndombele and Erik Lamela.Dele looked far from happy as he stormed past his manager – who did not even glance at him – to the dugout where the player took his frustrations out on a water bottle and then one of his boots as he threw each to the ground in fury.Back on the pitch, Giovani Lo Celso was proving to be Tottenham’s biggest goal threat as he went close with a long-range shot and then a free kick, which Gulacsi did well to tip onto the post and away for a corner.5 Jose Mourinho knows his side must score at least once in GermanyCredit: Getty ImagesWhy are RB Leipzig players wearing different coloured sponsors on their shirts against Tottenham in Champions League?last_img read more
