The lead up to the North London derby on Saturday was dominated by talk of a power shift towards Tottenham. Having long been in the shadow of their bitter rivals, Spurs were now seen as the dominant force who would no doubt inflict more damage on Arsenal and heap more dismay on their supporters.

The Gunners, it seemed, didn’t have a prayer.

Weaknesses prove costly again

Watford 2-1 Arsenal

Tom Cleverley celebrates after scoring late.

“Arsenal’s players just lack cojones” was the damning verdict from Troy Deeney on Arsene Wenger’s side having just helped Watford secure a last gasp victory against the Gunners.
