Odegaard, Saka, Martinelli – our three goal scorers and to make things better, Laca assisted both Saka and Martinelli so…our 4 attacking players created chances and goals and worked well together as we beat a lowly-placed but exciting Watford team today.
Our goals were well crafted too and we could have added at least one or two more. Arteta even helping on the third goal by supplying the throw0in ball to Saka.
Defensively, we were below par today as a unit mostly. We did not cover or recover as well as we did in other games and we gave away two goals, one which was an absolute stunner and a second one that could have been avoided. The worry was that Watford created chances easily on the break…
Saka had a MOTM performance today, with a goal and an assist and an amazing work rate. What a gem!
Odegaard and Laca also worked hard. Partey-Xhaka were below par and Soares and Tierney were exposed. As for Ramsdale-White,Gabs – they had better performances.
3 points in the bag and a chance to land a Top 4 spot looming ahead. Keep focused, keep your shape and keep scoring.
