LONDON – Arsenal moved into the top four leagues of the Senior League, but worked hard to see 10-year-old Watford men thanks to the very early Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang opener on Monday.

Aubameyang benefited from an error made by Watford's goalkeeper, Ben Foster, when he tried to make a clearance in Gabon's international place.

Watford's captain Troy Deeney was shown a direct red card after just 11 minutes, but the Guns failed to make the most of her man and they were lucky because the hosts hit the woodwork twice.

However, Unai Emery men were engaged in the first clean sheets away from home in the Premier League this season to move ahead of Chelsea on the difference between the goal and the fourth.

"We did not control the game as I was," Emery admitted.

"The staff were worried because they could be taken at the moment. The most important thing is to score the second goal, which we didn't do."

Arsenal is also ahead of Tottenham's rivals point in north London and two clear from Manchester United in the four-way battle for the other two places at the Champions League behind Liverpool and Manchester City.

Watford was in the finals of his FA Cup already worn out of the man who helped to book their place in Wembley against Manchester City next month as Gerard Deulofeu lost out through injury and made side Javi Gracia very much for them soon.

Firstly, Foster closed as Aubameyang to surrender comical openings.

"I'm sorry to tell the boys," Foster said. "I have tried to pull it on my left and take it out but before I knew it was (Aubameyang) bloody me.

"Looking back, you must get rid of as quickly as you can, even if it goes in a row Z.

"I'm certainly not modern. They can't score Z. row."

And within the seconds, Deeney was cut off from what the referee saw as an angle against Lucas Torreira.

"If he is fed up I suspect, maybe a yellow card but (a) a red card, I don't understand why the referee did it," said Watford Warden, Javi Gracia.

However, the 10 men were still causing problems for fragile arsenal at the other end.

Bernd Leno shot Craig Cathcart on the job and the German goalkeeper was also a full stretch to turn on the free kick of Etienne Capoue.

Emery introduced Mesut Ozil by half-time to try to improve Arsenal's final ball with enough space to counter-attack, but little exploit.

Alex Iwobi looked at the great cross that he offered to pick Henrikh Mkhitaryan, but Foster made his previous mistake by spreading himself to make great savings from the Armenian.

Arsenal's terrible record is why a battle is so tough for them to win the Champions League football next season.

And they could win the second win since November, as Adam Masina fell on strike of 25 yards of the crossbar before Andre Gray misplaced Daryl Janmaat's passport when he was cleaning up Leno. .

Ainsley Maitland-Niles rejected the latest challenge for Gray after securing Leno, but without Deulofeu and Deeney's firefighting, Watford's hard struggle was only successful.
