Mistakes from Sokratis and David Luiz saw Arsenal squander a two-goal lead as Watford earned a 2-2 draw in Quique Sanchez Flores' first game back in charge at Vicarage Road.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's deadly finishing, in the absence of the injured Alexandre Lacazette, looked to have steered Arsenal to victory after the Gabon international netted twice in 11 first-half minutes to take his tally to five in five Premier League games this season.
Unai Emery's men took the lead when Will Hughes was bundled off the ball and Aubameyang finished off a fast break with a cool finish, and the second arrived soon after courtesy of an astute Mesut Ozil throughball.
But Arsenal came under heavy pressure in the opening stages of both halves of an entertaining encounter and Watford pulled one back after a calamitous pass from Sokratis allowed Tom Cleverley a chance that he buried with aplomb.
David Luiz conceded a penalty nine minutes from time that substitute Roberto Pereyra confidently converted.
Arsenal, who came from behind to draw 2-2 with Tottenham in their last outing, are now winless in three Premier League games, while Sanchez Flores doubled Watford's points tally for the season by guiding them to a draw.
Goal! David Luiz trips up Roberto Pereyra, the substitute steps up and strokes home the spot-kick. Watford is level, Arsenal are in danger of throwing this away!
Chance! Gerard Deulofeu flashes a shot just wide! The home side is piling on the pressure!
Goal! A disastrous defensive error from Sokratis hands Tom Cleverly with an easy chance to half the deficit! 2-1!

Watford are rock bottom of the Premier League, can the Hornets pull off an upset tonight?
0 - Watford are one of two Premier League teams yet to win in 2019-20, along with Wolves; the Hornets haven’t failed to win any of their opening five league matches of a season since 2011-12 in the Championship. Dwellers. pic.twitter.com/RkHlhANK8T— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) September 15, 2019
We are 15 minutes away! Final preparations for both sides underway!
Guess who's back, back again? Quique Sánchez Flores is back, tell a friend! Yes, Watford fans! He's back (looking a bit like Phil Brown)
Now for Arsenal! Mesut Ozil makes his first competitive start of the season! Nicolas Pepe starts in attack!
Team news! First up Watford! Three changes to the side that drew with Newcastle before the international break! Holebas, Capoue and Deulofeu all come into the side! Andre Grey will lead the line in a 4-2-3-1 formation!
Today will be especially poignant for Watford fans.

Do you know what I hate? Wasted talent. Arsene Wenger has had his say on Daniel Sturridge.
"I always found Daniel Sturridge as a fantastic talent, and a waste overall with his career. I expected him to have a much bigger career. He was pure class."— beIN SPORTS (@beINSPORTS) September 15, 2019
