Watford vs Arsenal Player Ratings

Watford

Ben Foster (3/10): All three finishes were harsh on Foster’s score. Nonetheless, 3 goals conceded never looks good for GK.

Femenia (7/10): Not at fault for any of the goals. Even managed the assist for Hernandez’s goal.

Cathcart (5/10): Solid with his passing. However, his head was not just there defensively

Samir (3/10): Not great with his passing. Got held up by Lacazette on several occasions. 

Kamara (6/10): Kamara was really good defensively and struggled to deal with Saka and Odegaard. Decent going forward.

Tom Cleverly (4/10): For all his experience Cleverly ended up costing Watford the second goal. Was subbed off in the second-half. 

Louza (5/10): Did not do much wrong defensively and offensively. Crowd were not pleased with his substitution. 

Sissoko (7/10): Sissoko was always seen making those late runs into the box. It paid off in the end with a goal. 

Hernandez (7/10): Scored an overhead kick to put Watford level. Was brilliant with his workrate. 

Dennis (5/10): Another poor game from Emmanuel Dennis. Failed to find his feet at the top. 

Pedro (5/10): Started off really poorly. Nevertheless, grew into it late into the game.

Substitutes:

Kayembe (6/10): As mentioned earlier, the crowd were not pleased with him coming on. Failed to have any impact.

Kalu: NA

Arsenal 

Aaron Ramsdale (3/10): Could and should have done better for the second goal. However, was really complacent with his passing. 

Cedric (8/10): The Portuguese international continues to fill in for the injured Tomiyasu. He was really good with his crossing. 

Gabriel (7/10): The Brazilian was brilliant with his front foot defending. However, lacked a bit in possession. 

Ben White (6/10): White was better with his passing. Was directly at fault for the second goal. 

Tierney (7/10): Could argue that he was at fault for the Watford goal. The Scotsman was energetic going forward. 

Xhaka (7/10): Xhaka had a really good game going forward against Wolves. Could not make a similar impact today. 

Partey (7/10): Started the game with a real attacking intent. Faded off in the end. 

Saka (10/10): The starboy continues his brilliant season. Engineered the first goal and scored the second. 

Odegaard (9/10): Beautifully finished off a move he started to open the scoring for the Gunners. Was instrumental in possession.

Martinelli (8/10): When you see Martinelli, you expect the word worked somewhere. The Brazilian emphatically finished putting Arsenal 3-1 up. 

Lacazette (7/10): A really good outing from Lacazette. 2 assists, but still searching for his 200th career goal. 

Substitutes:

Pepe (6/10):  Not quite the impact he had against Wolves. Maybe needs some consistent minutes. 

Nketiah: NA

Rob Holding: NA
