Watford 2 Arsenal 3 LIVE SCORE: Sissoko gets one back for Hornets after Martinelli goal


ARSENAL are LEADING at Watford thanks to first half goals from Martin Odegaard and Bukayo Saka.

Cucho had equalised for the Hornets during the first 11 minutes of the game but the Gunners were able to take initiative again.

Gabriel Martinelli’s outstanding finish has given Mikel Arteta’s side a comfortable lead.

But Moussa Sissoko has made life uncomfortable for the visitors with a goal in the last five minutes, picking Ben White’s pocket to slot past Aaron Ramsdale.

The Gunners are aiming to finish in the Premier League top four this season and need to get on a consistent run of form if they’re to catch Man Utd.
