Cleverley’s injury-time goal gives Watford win over Arsenal

Published: Updated:

Watford climbed into the top four of the Premier League after Tom Cleverley’s 92nd-minute goal gave them a 2-1 victory over Arsenal at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

Per Mertesacker headed Arsene Wenger’s side into a 39th-minute lead from a corner but Troy Deeney equalised from the penalty spot in the 71st minute after Hector Bellerin had bundled over Richarlison.

The game looked set to end in a draw until Cleverley pounced on a loose ball in the penalty area and drilled a shot high into Petr Cech’s goal.

Watford are now on 15 points in fourth place and have leapfrogged Arsenal, who fall one place to sixth and remain on 13 points.
