Match Commentary

93' FULL TIME - Class counts is the lesson of today children. Watford were worthy contenders in a highly entertaining game but a wonderful piece of finishing has put paid to their gutsy endeavour. Bad luck to Adrian Boothroyd's men but hats off to Robin Van Persie for a sublime strike.
92' Walcott has a shot that fails to trouble Foster.
90' Young hits a ball in the direction of Henderson whose attentions on Toure are not appreciated by the Arsenal players.
