The Gunners were expected to win today’s match but suffered yet another gut-wrenching defeat in what has been an awful few weeks for Arsene Wenger and his men.
Odion Ighalo put Watford ahead shortly after half-time before Adlene Guédioura doubled the visitors’ advantage with a rocket 13 minutes later. Danny Welbeck pulled a goal back in the 88th minute then missed a golden opportunity to equalise moments later as Arsenal, winners of the last two FA Cups, crashed out of the competition.
