Javi Gracia insists Troy Deeney’s elbow did not merit a red card against Arsenal in Watford’s 1-0 defeat at Vicarage Road.

Deeney was shown a straight red one minute by referee Craig Pawson after Arsenal took the lead through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who converted by blocking a Ben Foster clearance. The narrow defeat means Watford are a point off seventh place in 10th.

  • Arsenal edge 10-man Watford to go fourth
  • As it happened

Gracia feels Deeney’s challenge did not deserve a straight dismissal which means the club captain will miss games against Huddersfield, Southampton and Wolves.
