However, in 2014 they had 19 at this stage and still failed to win the title, finishing fourth.Arsenal’s training ground is next to Watford’s in the county of Hertfordshire, just north of London. Indeed, Watford’s HQ was formerly used by the Gunners, but that is where the similarities stop.Newly promoted Watford have had a reasonable start to life back in the Premier League, winning two games, at home to Swansea and at Newcastle, taking them to 12th place.

Anirban Lahiri rounded of his challenge at the WGC-HSBC Champions with a two-under-par 70 finishing at tied 28th place. Lahiri’s four-day total of even-par 288 saw him finish tied for 28th place and brought about mixed emotions for the five-time Asian Tour winner, who was playing in his first World Golf Championship event this week. While he was left to reflect on a poor short game, the 27-year-old Indian knows he has the game to take on the world’s best players again. ‘I wouldn’t say I’m pleased with my performance as I came into this week playing some good golf. I’m still playing good golf but it’s just my short game and putting that let me down this week. All of us (Asian players) who are here are good enough to win this event but for that you got to show up and play your best game and have everything working,’ said Lahiri. Lahiri started the day staring at a massive 13-shot gap that separated him from Northern Ireland’s Graeme McDowell who led after the third round. But he showed character by making up ground quickly with a flawless outward-nine at the Sheshan International Golf Club.
