Watford’s Premier League season continued with a defeat against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

There wasn’t to be a repeat of the FA Cup quarter-final win for Watford with a rampant Arsenal side winning four-nil, making the most of the continued poor Hornets league form.

Arsenal took a 4th-minute lead through Alexis Sanchez as he followed up a Heurelho Gomes save with Alex Iwobi, having been denied by the Gomes before this, making it two just before the break.

Hector Bellerin saw his effort deflected in to have Arsenal further ahead three-minutes into the second half with Theo Walcott making it four in the 90th-minute, we’ll (we should be anyway) be ok from any relegation threat but improvement will be needed if we want to win another Premier League game this season let alone make the FA Cup final!

Here’s a round up of the Premier League action from the other games played at the weekend….

These were the other results.

Saturday 2nd April 2016
Aston Villa 0-4 Chelsea
Arsenal 4-0 Watford
Bournemouth 0-4 Man City
Norwich 3-2 Newcastle
Stoke 2-2 Swansea
Sunderland 0-0 West Brom
West Ham 2-2 Crystal Palace
Liverpool 1-1 Tottenham

These games are to be played.

Sunday 3rd April 2016
Leicester v Southampton
Man Utd v Everton

I wouldn’t think too many would expect Aston Villa (four-nil) to stay up now anyway, another heavy defeat with Chelsea beating them leaves Villa needing to be ‘put out of their misery’ really!

Others at the wrong end of the table including Norwich (three-two), who helped survival hopes as the Canaries moved further from the bottom three but at the expense of Newcastle who are now six-points from safety after this defeat with rivals Sunderland (nil-nil) again picking up only a point from the draw with West Bromwich Albion at the Stadium of Light so they too remain in the bottom three.

Arsenal’s (four-nil) slight hopes on winning the league linger on with an impressive win over FA Cup semi-finalists Watford, who beat the Gunners to secure his place, at the Emirates. This saw ground made on Tottenham (one-one) who drew at Liverpool to lose ground on leaders Leicester who will have a chance respond on Sunday….

Regarding the Champions League places Manchester City (four-nil) did there chances plenty of good with a win at Bournemouth whereas West Ham (two-two) lost ground in this battle when held by Crystal Palace at Upton Park.
