LONDON -- Three points from the Emirates on Arsenal's 2-0 win over Watford in the Premier League.

For Arsenal, the wins keep on coming -- even if, on the strength of their performances, that makes little sense. This was their seventh consecutive triumph in all competitions and their fifth in the Premier League, earned inside the last 10 minutes by a Craig Cathcart own goal and a Mesut Ozil strike.

Ahead of Crystal Palace's trip to Watford this weekend, Palace manager Roy Hodgson has delivered the latest stern warning against diving.
