Watford 2 Arsenal 3 LIVE SCORE: Sissoko reclaims one for Hornets after Martinelli goal

ARSENAL lead at Watford thanks to first-half goals from Martin Odegaard and Bukayo Saka.

Cucho had equalized for the Hornets in the first 11 minutes of the game, but the Gunners were able to regain the initiative.

Gabriel Martinelli’s superb finish gave Mikel Arteta’s side a comfortable lead.
