Arsenal travelled to Watford in Saturday’s late English Premier League kick-off and suffered a shock defeat in the closing moments of the match.
Per Mertesacker had given the Gunners a lead in the first half and despite chances to put the game beyond doubt, Arsene Wenger’s side let their lead slip and eventually succumbed to Watford pressure in injury time.
A soft penalty conceded by Hector Bellerin was converted by substitute Troy Deeney before Tom Cleverley made himself a hero with a close range finish at the death.
It’s a win that seems Watford leapfrog both Arsenal and Chelsea, moving into fourth position.
The Gunners haven’t won an away match in the Premier League all season and fans are growing increasingly impatient with the tactics and team selection of Wenger.
Not only that, but they’re rapidly losing faith in players that were previously favourites like Mesut Ozil.

Trash from top to bottom! Actually that's a bit harsh on trash! #AFC

Losing Welbeck had a big impact but then taking off Lacazette when he looked our most dangerous player on the ball was ridiculous #AFC

This has been the worst possible start I have ever witnessed. Club is in shambles and we need solutions. #afc

3 defenders trying to block shots and everyone else is jogging back, Xhaka watching football. Careless attitude in the dying seconds #afc

This defeat should feel like a complete waste for Arsenal. In full control at 1-0. But players rested on laurels & invited Watford on. #afc
