Things are finally looking somewhat in place at Arsenal as Unai Emery’s plans for the club are beginning to take shape after the Gunners extended their winning run to seven in all competitions under the former PSG boss with their latest 2-0 victory against Watford.
While the match remained scoreless for most of the 90 minutes, a late own goal from Cathcart and a slick finish from Mesut Ozil two minutes later bagged all 3 points for the North Londoners. The win takes Arsenal to fifth in the table, on equal points with bitter rivals Spurs and after a lackluster start to the campaign things are finally starting to look up for the club.
But while the result in itself would have pleased Gooners, a bizarre bit of commentary from Tony Gale has displeased large sections of supporters as the pundit went on to criticize Lucas Torreira for being on the receiving end of a foul by Watford skipper Troy Deeney for what he perceived was a deliberate attempt to con the referee.

As clearly seen from replays, it’s quite obvious that the Uruguayan is the victim and not the culprit and Gale’s view on the whole incident has understandably perplexed and angered several Gooners on social media following the match.
