Watford Goalie Apologises After Error In Arsenal Defeat


Watford shot-stopper Ben Foster has apologised for his mistake which led to the only goal of the game against North London giants Arsenal in their Premier League meeting at the Vicarage Road on Monday night.

The England international goalkeeper was charged down by Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang before his hurried clearance cannoned off the Gabonese international player and into the back of the net.

After the game, Ben Foster told reporters about the apology to his Watford teammates shortly after the game.

The setback happened around the 10-minute mark and Watford faced further problems when captain Troy Deeney was dismissed for his elbow on Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira.

Watford backed their players as they fought hard for a route back to the game with ten men.

Arsenal created the best chances of the game especially in the second half but Watford put the Gunners under pressure for the large parts of the game.

Gunners shot-stopper Bernd Leno made some vital saves to preserve the lead for his team.

The win was a crucial one for Arsenal who is eyeing a top-four spot in the Premier League.

They are now in the top four as it stands in the Premier League.

Arsenal were able to keep a clean sheet away from home for the first time this season.
