Saka And Odegaard Help Arsenal Move Into Top Four.
Arsenal were made to work hard for their victory over Watford at Vicarage Road, but they were well worth it.
Four fantastic goals were scored in this highly exciting match, opening with Martin Odegaard and Bakary Saka teaming up on the right wing before the former dragged the pass back for the Norwegian to slide home.
Then came a sensational goal as Cucho Hernandez launched at the ball with a bicycle kick that drove low past Aaron Ramsdale’s left hand after Kiko clipped a ball to the back post, which lingered in the air invitingly.
On the half-hour mark, Saka swapped passes with Alexandre Lacazette before smashing a shot into the top right hand corner with Ben Foster diving the other way.
Eight minutes into the second half, Odegaard flicked the ball to Lacazette on the outskirts of the box, and he passed the ball back for Gabriel Martinelli to curl an attempt just inside the top left corner.
Moussa Sissoko guaranteed a stressful finish for Arsenal by beating Ben White in the area and sneaking a shot past Ramsdale, but the Gunners held on for a merited triumph.
