“He’s been a waste this season…sell him” Arsenal fans call for star to be sold after poor 1st half showing against Watford

Unai Emery’s Arsenal struggled to create enough chances to break the deadlock in the first half of their Premier League tie against Watford this afternoon.

Unai Emery couldn’t manage to get one over his former teammate and current Watford boss Javi Gracia in the first 45 minutes of action today at the Emirates Stadium.

Alexandre Lacazette had the best chance of the half doing well to capitalise on a defensive error by Watford only to try and audaciously chip the on-rushing Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster.

Lacazette’s audacious attempt went wide and the Frenchman really should have put the Gunners into the lead with his effort.
