Premier League Report: Watford 1-3 Arsenal
Arsenal beat Watford to earn their first victory of the season.
Both sides had one defeat and a draw from the opening two league matches but Arsenal’s impressive first-half performance earned them three points.
Arsenal took the lead in the ninth minute with Santi Cazorla converting from the penalty spot after Alexis Sanchez was bundled to the ground by Nordin Amrabat.
Sanchez doubled the advantage in the 40th minute, converting Theo Walcott’s enticing cross before Mesut Ozil added a third in stoppage time at the end of a comfortable first half.
Substitute Roberto Pereyra scored for the Hornets on his debut but it proved to be a consolation for the hosts.
Walter Mazzarri’s side put in a much-improved performance after the break but the Italian was made to wait for his first win as Watford manager.
