Sokratis thinks his mistake vs Watford cost Arsenal the game

Watford 2-Arsenal 2

Arsenal took on Watford in Sunday’s late Premier League kick-off

Watford were without a win in the league this season heading into the Arsenal clash but they did have a new boss at the helm.

Quique Sanchez Flores’ return as Watford manager did not get off to a great start though as Arsenal found themselves 2-0 up by half-time thanks to a brace from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

However, Watford would fight back in the second half to earn a 2-2 draw

Sokratis on his mistake

While the Hornets did dominate Arsenal for large periods in the second 45, the Gunners downfall was largely of their own making.

Watford’s first goal in the 53rd minute came from Sokratis losing the ball inside his own penalty area from a goal kick.

Watford’s equaliser then came from the penalty spot after David Luiz’s silly tackle on Roberto Pereyra.

After the game, Sokratis has spoken about his mistake, stating he thinks he cost Arsenal the game:

 “I think that I cost the game for the team.

“It was my mistake for something simple that I don’t have to do.

“I think this was the problem why we lose the three points. I apologised because I cost the game for the team and I have to work harder.

“I know up to this moment I didn’t have a mistake, I didn’t do nothing. Everything was near to perfect.” As quoted by the Evening Standard.
