Troy Deeney's red card and Ben Foster's howler cured Arsenal's travel sickness as they finally kept a clean sheet on the road.

Gunners fans loved it when Deeney was sent off after just 11 minutes for a forearm swish on Lucas Torreira. Perfect payback for that 'cojones' barb last season.

But Arsenal made desperately hard work of seeing off tenacious Watford's 10 men and scrambling back into the top four.

Deeney was furious with referee Craig Pawson's sanction, after the intervention of linesman Richard West, ripping off his shirt and exchanging words with both Torreira and Arsenal boss Unai Emery.

The Watford captain's language was not exactly how-now-brown-cow as he protested his innocence to Emery.

Deeney and Emery face off

But the Arsenal boss made light of it, saying: “He said something, but I don't what it was. I didn't listen – it's not important.

“We have to be happy with the result because to win here is difficult, but we didn't control the match as I wanted.”

Deeney's expulsion came barely 60 seconds after Watford keeper Foster's rare gaffe gifted Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang his 23rd goal of the season and, ultimately, handed Arsenal their barely-deserved win.

Foster could at least laugh at himself after dithering over Daryl Janmaat's tame backpass, which Aubameyang charged down in the six-yard box and the ricochet flew in.

Aubameyang scored the only goal

The ex-England keeper said: “I'm gutted and I've said sorry to the lads. I should have just Cruyffed him, to be honest. I've tried to drag it on to my left foot and pass it out, but before I knew it he was bloody on to me.

“Lesson learned. They can't score from Row Z. He was too quick for me, I should have got rid sooner.”

Hornets head coach Javi Gracia was less amused by his captain's red card, shrugging: “I don't agree with it but I respect the referee's decision. It's a foul, maybe a yellow card, but I don't understand why the referee gave a red.

“I could see the play, I could see the contact with Troy's arm, but never with his elbow, but what can I say now?

“I am very proud of my players. The sending-off was very tough for us and Troy is very sad.”

Deeney was red carded for this challenge

Wasteful on the counter, with Henrikh Mkhitarayan foiled by Foster from point-blank range, Arsenal were lucky to abscond from Vicarage Road with the points.

Craig Cathcart hit the post, Adam Masina's rocket hit the angle and Gunners keeper Bernd Leno excelled to keep out Etienne Capoue's free-kick.

Emery and opposite number Gracia were team-mates at Real Sociedad in Spain, and the Watford's head coach was the first person Arsenal's manager consulted before he took the Emirates job.

Suppressing 10 men was nothing like as comfortable as it should have been for the Gunners.

After burgling six points from his mate this season, Emery should be picking up the tab next time they go out for dinner.

Jeff Brazier shocks with full frontal nudity as he 'gets his c**k out' on TV

Jeff Brazier left his co-stars and viewers shocked when he stripped naked in an episode of SAS: Who Dares Wins.

The TV star apologised as he told the others taking on Ant Middleton's SAS training in the name of charity that he needed to 'get his c**k out'.

Jeff took part in a particularly messy challenge as he was forced to endure extreme conditions alongside other stars, including Made in Chelsea's Sam Thompson and Loose Women's Andrea McLean.

After wrestling in thick mud, the participants were directed towards a row of sinks to wash off with nothing but a few taps spouting out freezing cold water.

Jeff stripped off on the show

As everyone struggled to lean themselves up, Jeff announced: "Guys, I'm so sorry, I'm going to have to get my c**k out, alright?"

One of the girls tells him: "It's okay, just get your c**k out."

Jeff then suggests: "Just pretend I'm your brother or something."

Jeff, 39, is seen whipping his trousers off, before later talking about it as he sat down for the cameras.

He said: "I'd say I'm in relatively good shape, I exercise and go to classes I'd say four times a week.

He wanted to have a proper clean
Jeff wasn't shy about getting his kit off

"I've averagely strong really, there's obviously much bigger men than me, but I've got a huge determination"

Then back at the showers, naked Jeff tells the others: "It's not looking as good as it normally does."

And he's told: "Don't make excuses, Jeff."

Jeff doesn't seem phased by his nudity as he runs around the camp, and it seems he has nothing to worry about.

Sam tells him: "Your missus must be so happy."

He says he's in good shape

Jeff laughed about it after the episode aired.

He tweeted: "When they said you'll have to bare everything on SAS: Who Dares Wins I thought they meant vulnerability and pain. Little did I know they'd be showing that #Shrivel."

* Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins airs Sundays at 9pm on Channel 4

Notre Dame fire: Towers 'saved' from ferocious fire that ravaged Paris Cathedral

French President Emmanuel Macron has vowed to rebuild Notre Dame after firefighters declared the 850-year-old world treasure's structure "saved" from ruin.

Notre Dame's spire has already collapsed, and firefighters claim its iconic rose glass windows have been destroyed in the devastating inferno.

But the French leader, speaking outside the still-smoking cathedral more than 500 firefighters had battled for hours to save, said Notre Dame would rise from the ashes.

The world leader said: “We will appeal to the greatest talents and we will rebuild Notre-Dame because that’s what the French are waiting for, because that’s what our history deserves, because it’s our deepest destiny”

He declared an international appeal would be launched to raise the funds to rebuild the Cathedral, shortly after firefighters declared the structure would survive and the two towers had been saved.

Prosecutors in France believe the fire started accidentally based on their preliminary investigation.

Sparks spit from the burning Notre Dame
 

As crews begin to get the blaze under control, reports say a firefighter tackling the blaze was "seriously injured" amid the response to the massive fire.

Onlookers were seen singing hymns and applauding exhausted firefighters in moving scenes from Paris beaming out around the world.

Firefighters earlier claimed the 13th century stained glass windows that make the cathedral so instantly recognisable are gone.

"They exploded because of the heat of the blaze," one firefighter said.

They said the Rosette West, which was created in 1225, the Rosette North, created in 1250, and the Rosette South, which dates back to 1250 have been lost to the flames.

The final hours before they declared the structure protected were "crucial" to saving treasured landmark, a Paris Fire Department spokesman had said earlier as crews battled to contain the blaze.

Now, it appears looks like they have done just that. The Cathedral has been saved but the devastating images beaming around the world from Paris made the "colossal damage" its suffered plain to see.

The important Catholic site of worship went up in flames during Christianity's Holy Week of Easter.

"Everything is collapsing," a police officer near the scene was heard to say as Parisians and tourists watched in tears as a "symbol of Paris" burned before their eyes.

Paris Fire Chief Jean-Claude Gallet said it is unclear if city firefighters will be able to keep the blaze from spreading and causing more destruction.

Speaking outside the cathedral, he said "we are not sure we are capable of stopping the spreading" to Notre Dame's second tower and belfry.

He said: "If it collapses, you can imagine how important the damage will be."

Crowds have gathered from the River Seine's bridges and banks as emergency services try desperately to save the medieval building and the priceless works of art at its heart.

Some sang hymns as they watched the important Catholic place of worship burn.

Witnesses posted photos of the famed cathedral on fire
The spire collapsed in the blazing fire
 

French President Emmanuel Macron has arrived at the scene where devastating footage earlier captured the moments the spire of one of Paris' most recognisable landmarks collapsing.

The leader has arrived to speak to emergency services as the world watches the cathedral burn, prompting messages of sorrow from around the world.

Moving footage has captured crowds singing Ave Maria as they watch Notre Dame burn.

The scenes prompted a message from the Vatican, which says the fire has caused "shock and sadness."

The Vatican says it is close to French Catholics and is keeping Paris firefighters in its prayers.

It issued a statement: "The Holy See has seen with shock and sadness the news of the terrible fire that has devastated the Cathedral of Notre Dame, symbol of Christianity in France and in the world."
