Watford fought back from 2 goals down in half-time to draw at home to Arsenal in Quique Sanchez Flores’ first match since being reappointed Hornets manager.
They levelled the scores after Tom Cleverley had reduced the deficit when Gunners shield Sokratis Papastathopoulos gave away possession inside his own area, to take their second point of this season after Roberto Pereyra wrapped in a late penalty.
When the pass of Sead Kolasinac gathered in the turn before firing past Ben Foster pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had put the people in front.

As they went through 20 passes for their next goal they demonstrated their attacking flair – however glaring problems remain at the trunk.
This was clear as early as the 10th minute as space opened up for Cleverley, whose effort was well saved by Leno and the white and red shirts.
Five minutes afterwards, and Etienne Capoue was given the same time and space but could shoot over the bar.
The Gunners want to play from the trunk, and even though Matteo Guendouzi lost possession deep in their own half on 2 events they persisted with his or her approach.
And Sokratis eventually made the mistake which always seemed likely to happen, before Deulofeu redirected the ball into Cleverley’s route for Watford’s initial goal.
David Luiz was brought from London rivals Chelsea to shore up the defence on the summertime, but the Brazilian has suffered at the beginning of his Arsenal career, and has conceded two penalties in 3 games.
Luiz brought Pereyra with a lunge down along with the replacement stepped up himself occupying a point for the hosts and to take the penalty.
