EPL: Wenger speaks on Petr Cech's 200th clean sheet

Fans were delighted with the result and praised the performance of Mustafi on social media after the game.

A sweet moment for Arsenal after Deeney accused them of lacking "cojones" in their October defeat at Vicarage Road. "All these things come in, for how much I don't know, but of course it plays a part".

"They all just backed off".

"I leave that judgement to you, I think yes", he said.

But Deeney, who had scored three times in his past four appearances, had a day to forget on Sunday as his penalty was too close to Cech in the middle of the goal, and the Czech saved it. The victory was finally sealed 13 minutes from the end, when Aubameyang set up Mkhitaryan for his first Premier League goal in an Arsenal shirt. "I believe I got this far through my work ethic". Meanwhile, Watford had a couple of decent chances, a free-kick from Richarlison that Petr Čech saved brilliantly and a shot from inside the penalty area by Abdoulaye Doucouré that was saved by the 35-year-old keeper.

The Gunners were reminded of his comments before the game and Wenger says they were a factor.

When quizzed about it after the game, Deeney responded by claiming the full-back could not have seen his own foul on the Brazilian because "he had his long hair was in the way and he could not see what he was doing".

The win marked several landmarks for Arsenal. The Germany midfielder became the fastest man to reach that milestone - in 141 games - when Mustafi headed his precise free kick back across goal in the 8th minute.

It would seem that The Gunners will need to focus on the Europa League for any chance of returning to Europe's elite competition next season. Over his years of service for the Blues, Cech collected several records in quick fashion before passing the torch to young keeper Thibaut Courtois in his last season at Stamford Bridge, leaving SW6 as a Premier League and League Cup victor to then join Arsenal in the summer of 2015.

Watford have now lost all five of their away Premier League matches in the month of March.

Wenger, 68, signed a two-year contract extension at the end of last season to take his tenure in charge well into a third decade. He's run us to the point where nobody expects anything and if we win, Arsene is the master who's still got it!
