While Arsenal didn’t exactly deliver a flawless performance against Watford last weekend, they showed grit in the closing stages to carve out a 2-0 victory against the Hornets. The win takes Arsenal to fifth in the points table, and extended the Gunners’ streak to 7 straight wins.
After catching up to the top 4 in England, Unai Emery’s men now travel to Azerbaijan to face Qarabag in the Europa League.
The chief photographer was on scene as the players went about their pre-match training at the Baku Olympic Stadium and managed to capture some pretty neat shots. But it was Ozil and Kolasinac’s moment with a stray cat that stood out among the rest for the fans.
Check out the photo:

Before a game in which Henrikh Mkhitaryan misses out due to diplomatic reasons, the photo still managed to put a smile on the faces of several fans, who seemed to have loved the duo’s snap with the cat on Twitter.
