The Hornets – who sat bottom of the table with only one win in 15 games when Nigel Pearson was appointed to replace Quique Sanchez Flores in December – had initially moved six points clear of the bottom three following successive home victories over Norwich and Newcastle earlier this month.However, things quickly unravelled again for Watford, who made the surprising decision to dismiss Pearson following a costly 3-1 loss at West Ham and disagreement with owner Gino Pozzo.And caretaker manager Mullins could only watch on as his side suffered the worst possible start, conceding a penalty inside 34 seconds as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang struck the first blow of the afternoon.Things went from bad to worse for the visitors as Aubameyang tuned provider as Kieran Tierney scored his first goal for the Gunners on 33 minutes, before the Arsenal captain acrobatically scored his second and Arsenal’s third to put the hosts 3-0 up.Troy Deeney did provide a glimmer of hope after the Watford skipper converted a penalty on 43 minutes – the fifth that David Luiz has conceded this season – as they went in 3-1 down at the break. Danny Welbeck cut Arsenal’s lead to 3-2 with 66 minutes on the clock, as Arsenal looked like they were about let a three-goal lead slip.Bournemouth were also relegated from the Premier League despite beating Everton.The Cherries went into the final day with a mountain to climb after languishing in the lower reaches of the Premier League for much of the season.They sat three points from safety and were reliant on other results going their way to keep their place at the top table.Tags: AFC BouremouthPremier LeagueWatford FC

U.S. Soccer has announced the U.S. women’s national team schedule leading up to the 2019 World Cup, a 10-game series the federation has dubbed the “Countdown to the Cup.”Eight of the 10 games will take place in the United States, with the USWNT opening its 2019 campaign with matches in Europe against France on January 19 and at Spain three days later. The 10 matches will also include the SheBelieves Cup, a three-game tournament against powers Japan, England and Brazil set to take place in late February and early March. After friendlies against Australia and Brazil in early April, the U.S. will then embark on a three-match “Send-Off Series” against South Africa, a yet-to-be-determined opponent, and Mexico. From there, the USWNT will head to France as it looks to become the second team to successfully defend a Women’s World Cup tittle. “This schedule checks a lot of important boxes in our preparation for the World Cup,” head coach Jill Ellis said in a federation release. “We’ll get to experience a variety of teams in regard to their strengths and styles of play and almost all of the countries will be in their World Cup preparation as well. “We are playing tough games in Europe, which is vitally important, and also get to play quality opponents in front of our home fans at venues all across the USA. It will go fast, but these games will be a major factor in pushing us to be at our peak once we arrive in France next summer.”The U.S. will learn its fate for the World Cup on Saturday, when the Final draw will be held in Paris.Full USWNT schedule belowDateOpponentLocationTime (ET)Jan. 19FranceLe Havre, France2:30 p.m.Jan. 22SpainAlicante, Spain 2:30 p.m.Feb. 27Japan (SheBelieves Cup)Chester, Pa.7 p.m.March 2England (SheBelieves Cup)Nashville, Tenn.4:30 p.m.March 5Brazil (SheBelieves Cup)Tampa, Fla. 8 p.m.April 4AustraliaCommerce City, Colo.9 p.m.April 7BelgiumLos Angeles, Calif.9 p.m.May 12South Africa (Send-Off Series)Santa Clara, Calif.4:30 p.m.May 16TBD (Send-Off Series)St. Louis, Mo.8 p.m.May 26Mexico (Send-Off Series)Harrison, N.J.12 p.m.
