Cleverley hands Watford rare home win over Arsenal

Deeney's impact off the bench made a real difference to the game, with Watford switching from three at the back to a 4-4-2 system following the introduction of their club captain.

The Gunners, attempting to climb into the top four themselves, were leading through a Per Mertesacker header but Troy Deeney equalised from the penalty spot.

The French boss said: "We were unlucky".

Watford manager Marco Silva was quick to defend his player, however.

"The referee was much closer than me [for Watford's penalty], so you trust his decision". I believe that Jack, at the moment, is in the best form I've seen him in for a long time.

Wilshere who has unfortunately endured a series of injuries during his career has yet to play in the Premier League for the Gunners this season though he did feature in the Carabao Cup and Europa League.

Per Mertesacker marked his first Premier League start in 532 days with the opening goal, the German defender converting Grant Xhaka's corner in the 39th minute, to put Arsene Wenger's side on course for a fifth successive win in all competitions.

Watford raised the pressure after the break and less than a minute after Heurelho Gomes had saved from Mesut Ozil, Watford had a penalty.

Moments later came the penalty drama, and then in injury time when Andre Carrillo's shot was blocked Cleverley lashed in a dramatic victor. Seconds later Hector Bellerin fouled Richarlison and Watford were level.

Ozil would then have more appeal to those now eyeing his situation without making a cash offer for his services to Arsenal. "We did that and I thought we deserved the win".

"We have one goal, to remain as a Premier League club".
