Nigerian striker,Alex Iwobi was impressive today at the Emirates Stadium, as Asenal took vengeance on Watford, who had sent them out of the FA Cup weeks earlier, beating them 4-0 today, in the Baclays Premier League.

Handed a second successive league start after impressing in the 2-0 victory at Everton before the international break, Iwobi set up Alexis's fourth-minute opener before doubling the home side's lead with a first-time finish.

Bellerin added a third goal early in the second half, the full-back's left-footed effort taking a heavy deflection to beat the busy Heurelho Gomes, and Walcott rounded off the scoring as Arsene Wenger's side cut the deficit to leaders Leicester City - who host Southampton on Sunday - down to eight points.

Watford ended their opponents' hopes of a third successive FA Cup triumph with a 2-1 victory at the same ground last month, yet looked to have their upcoming semi-final with Crystal Palace on their minds.

Arsenal had scored just six goals in their last eight home games in all competitions, but they managed two in the first half against opponents who came into the fixture having won only two of their last 13 league outings.

The impressive Iwobi created the first as Arsenal made a perfect start, floating over a cross from the left that Alexis met with a firm header at the far post. Although Gomes kept out the initial effort, the Chilean tucked away the rebound to register his first league goal at the Emirates since October 4.

Iwobi was later on denied his second, and Arsenal's fourth, by the woodwork before being withdrawn to a standing ovation in the 74th minute. (
