A goalkeeping howler and a red card..it was an opening ten minutes to forget for Watford against Arsenal in the Premier League on Monday evening.

Maybe Ben Foster didn't realise how quick Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang actually is, but the Arsenal forward's pace and acceleration is hardly a secret.

The Watford keeper received the ball from Daryl Janmaat with barely any pressure on him - but Aubameyang saw his chance.

He raced to close down the ball and with the help of a heavy touch from Foster, Aubameyang managed to catch up.

The Gabonese striker blocked the desperate clearance and diverted the ball into the net to give his side the lead. A disaster for Foster and Watford.

1-0 down from an awful mistake and you'd think that things couldn't get any worse. Think again.

Less than a minute later, Watford captain Troy Deeney showed his 'cojones' by getting himself sent off for 'elbowing' Arsenal's diminutive midfielder Lucas Torreira.

You couldn't make it up..

To be fair to Deeney, it was a very, very harsh sending off.

It's going to be tough for Watford to fight their way back in this one... oh wait, ignore that - Arsenal are playing Shkodran Mustafi at right-back.
