Arsenal claimed all three points at Vicarage Road after grinding out a 1-0 win to move back into the Top Four and above Chelsea with a game in hand.

And the course of the game was decided within the space of a minute as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang pounced on Ben Foster to score.

Then, no more than 60 seconds after the goal, the Hornets were down to 10 men after Deeney’s challenge.

Referee Craig Pawson did not see the striker catch Torreira, but was referred to it by his linesman on the near side.

According to the Daily Mirror, Deeney called the decision a ‘f****** embarrassment’ before appearing to talk to the diminutive midfielder.

As he then headed for the tunnel, he had words with the fourth official before venting to Emery on the touchline.

Pointing back towards the field, the 31-year-old exclaimed: “He’s a f****** p****.

“I’ve ran past him.”
