Arsenal Under-18s extended their lead at the top of the Premier Academy League to 20 points after a slender victory at Watford.

After a goalless first half, Roarie Deacon broke the deadlock for the visitors in the 65th minute, slding home from just inside the area after Chuks Aneke's through-ball.

The victory is Bould's boys' ninth in 10 games and they have now only lost once since September.
