According to Arsenal’s goalkeeper Bernd Leno, his team lost control of the second half as his team went from a 2-0 half time advantage to tying 2-2 with Watford.

After the first 45 minutes, Arsenal had a 2-0 advantage over Watford in the English Premier League match.

But then a series of mistakes allowed the Hornets to tie the game 2-2.

“I think in the second half we lost completely the control of the game,” goalkeeper Bernd Leno told Football 365.

“The distance from the midfield to the strikers and all the distances from the players were too big. Watford deserved at least the draw.”

He added: “It was very frustrating because we controlled the game but also in the first half, you could see that we made two easy mistakes and then at the end we conceded two goals from these kinds of mistakes and we were lucky we didn’t lose this game.”

“I don’t know why this is but I think many shots are from distance and when you see Watford, they had many chances but sometimes they were shooting for a throw-in and you can’t count every shot.”

“Thirty-one (shots) is like every three minutes, someone is shooting at our goal. It is a statistic but it is not the truth,” he added.

“For example, Deulofeu, he was shooting 15 times from distance and of course there were some dangerous shots but not everyone.”
