Arsenal claimed a confidence boosting 4-1 win over Watford on Wednesday.

Eddie Nketiah, Alexandre Lacazette, Kieran Tierney and Miguel Azeez all netted for the Gunners in the behind-closed-doors friendly.

A brilliant individual goal from Nketiah gave Arsenal the lead, before Philip Zinckernagel levelled for Watford from close range.

With new signing Albert Sambi Lokonga in action, the Gunners went back in front hen Lacazette scored a penalty after Ainsley Maitland-Niles was fouled.

Tierney smashed home a half-volley to extend the lead, but the goal from Azeez was the pick of the bunch.

The 18-year-old collected a short corner on the right-hand side of the Watford penalty area, shifted the ball onto his left foot and then curled a sublime effort into the top corner.

Arsenal will next play Chelsea on Sunday before making the short trip to face Tottenham the following weekend.
