Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +4 A hopeful lofted pass is thumped up towards the edge of the Watford penalty area and manages to pick out Mertesacker, who rises high and gets a head on the ball but nods it comfortably wide of the goal. That should be that for the home side, who are seconds away from picking up an excellent victory.
90' +2 T. Cleverley has scored a goal for Watford!
GOAL! Watford have surely won the game right at the death! Two thumping strikes are fired towards goal but are just about deflected away by Mertesacker on both occasions. The ball eventually drops to Cleverley, who quickly shoots and fires his first-time strike into the roof of the net. What an end to the game!
90' The fourth official has indicated that there will be four minutes of added time.
89' Bellerin twists and turns over on the right-hand side of the Watford box before trying to pick out Giroud with a floated cross into the heart of the penalty area, but Kabasele is there to nod the ball behind for a corner that's well dealt with by the home side.
87' Carrillo goes close! Poor play by Arsenal over on the right flank sees them lose the ball and set up Carrillo to shoot from the edge of the penalty area, but the Peruvian's shot is slightly wild and sails a few yards over the top of the crossbar.
85' R. Holding enters the game and replaces L. Koscielny.
It looks as if Koscielny may be struggling with a slight injury, and he's been forced off to be replaced by Rob Holding.
84' Huge opportunity for Richarlison! A great cross from Holebas loops into the heart of the Arsenal penalty area and manages to pick out Richarlison, who is able to spin and get a shot away but sends it flying over the top of the crossbar from close range.
83' Capoue hits the post! Richarlison and Deeney link up well over on the left-hand side of the Arsenal penalty area before the latter spins and finds Capoue. The former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder immediately shoots, and his effort ends up deflecting away from Cech and onto the far post.
81' E. Capoue enters the game and replaces R. Pereyra.
Watford have made their third and final change, with Etienne Capoue coming on to take the place of Pereyra.
79' Great chance for Monreal to put Arsenal back in front! Xhaka breaks into the Watford box and quickly tees up Monreal, who is presented with a wonderful opportunity to get a shot away. He doesn't pull the trigger quickly enough, however, and Pereyra is then able to poke the ball away from the defender at the vital moment.
