Watford and Arsenal bosses have their say on Troy Deeney's comments

Watford and Arsenal bosses have their say on Troy Deeney's comments

The Premier League side were dealt three successive league losses before returning to winning ways on Sunday after beating Watford 3-0.

The victory was finally sealed 13 minutes from the end, when Aubameyang set up Mkhitaryan for his first EPL goal in an Arsenal shirt.

They trailed fourth-placed Tottenham by 10 points ahead of their north London rivals' trip to Bournemouth later yesterday.

They hold a 2-0 lead against Milan and will host the Serie A giants in the second leg on Thursday.

Watford had a chance to score a goal from the penalty spot in the 63rd minute after Maitland Niles fouled Roberto Pereyara in the box but captain Troy Deeney's penalty was saved by Petr Cech. It shows a huge level of motivation and intelligence, and he shows plenty of that. When I was in Dortmund, I was playing every three days but now I play once a week or have a long time between games.

However the empty seats at the Emirates were again a talking point as apathy from many supporters appears to be the biggest problem facing the club at the moment, with many supporters staying away because they are disillusioned with Wenger as boss.

"Of course it highlights as well what Petr Cech has done", continued Wenger.

Arsenal defeated Watford 3-0 in their Premier League encounter on Sunday. It was the veteran's 200th clean sheet in the Premier League and Wenger paid tribute.

Four of Mustafi's five Premier League goals have been assisted by Mesut Ozil (two from corners, two from free-kicks) - all four of the Ozil-assisted goals have been at the Emirates.

"It is an important win today against a big team like Watfod as it comes after a series of league losses", the Egyptian worldwide, who played the full 90 minutes and produced a fine display in the heart of midfield, told beIN Sports channel after the match. "We took only 18 games to get nine clean sheets at the start of the season to reach the 199 and we had to wait 11 games [to get to 200], which is sometimes frustrating". "We had a nightmare week, and so overall we still have some work to do, but we are in a good way".

Arsenal are also vying for a spot in next season's Champions League through the Europa League.
