If you were to not watch the game but ask an Arsenal fan what would constitute an absolutely horrendous night's work in the Toilet Bowl arena, they would probably include any of the following: Early goal conceded Silly unnecessary goal or penalty conceded Red card to an Arsenal player Big defeat that could have an [...]
Eddie Nketiah’s brace was vital in Arsenal securing three points at home to Leeds.
What vital win that was yesterday. Arsenal knew that they needed to get a result against a Tottenham side that had been given a leg up with Leicester undertaking massive rotation and basically throwing their match at the Toilet Bowl Stadium.

That felt like a strange old game yesterday away to Watford. Strange and ultimately good, but still unusual, in terms of how the match evolved and then finished. Yesterday morning I wrote that I didn't think Watford would be pushovers; they don't score a lot of goals but Roy Hodgson is a manager who has [...]
