North London giants Arsenal are up to fourth spot on the Premier League table after the Gunners sealed a 1-0 win over Watford in their Premier League clash at Vicarage Road on Monday night.

Arsenal knew that an away victory over Watford will take them into the top four places on the Premier League table and that was what they recorded against Hornets side that finished the game with ten men.

The Gunners took an early lead through a 10th-minute strike from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who profited from a goalkeeping error from the Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster.

Aubameyang has now scored 18 goals in the Premier League this term and only Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah and Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero have scored more (19).

Watford were then reduced to ten men when their captain Troy Deeney was sent off for an elbow on Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira.

The hosts held their own against Arsenal despite playing the majority of the game with a man down.

Watford hit the crossbar twice while Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno made several saves to keep the advantage for the Gunners.

The win over Watford takes Arsenal above London rivals Chelsea and into fourth spot on the Premier League table.

Arsenal also kept a clean sheet for the first time this season away from home.
