Arsenal end three-match losing run in the EPL

Arsene Wenger

When the two sides met earlier in the season at Vicarage Road, Tom Cleverley netted an injury-time penalty to ensure a controversial 2-1 win.

However, Ozil wouldn't be denied his 50th Premier League assist for long.

The excellent performance by Cech resulted in a 200th league clean sheet for the 35-year-old, and a rather embarrassed Deeney, whose own words were more than on display by Arsenal this time round.

Aubameyang was one of six players recalled as Arsene Wenger rotated ahead of next week's return leg with the Italians, and had a golden opportunity to score inside three minutes.

"What Petr Cech has done - 200 clean sheets - that's remarkable and on top of that he saved a penalty today", the Frenchman is quoted by the Evening Standard as saying.

To be fair, Deeney strikes us as the type of player who's probably quite willing to take stick like this after giving it out, but he might well think twice before making similar comments after a match again! He shows a huge level of intelligence. "Yes, it plays a part".

The hosts would take the lead from the next attack, Mustafi rising between Adrian Mariappa and Jose Holebas to head home Ozil's free-kick.

The stadium move was a useful mark to split Wenger's reign into two distinct eras: one where they were on the rise - peaking with the Invincibles and the incredible 49-game unbeaten run - and then the subsequent slow, painful decline.

Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan would link up once more for a third goal, with the Armenian putting the ball away.

"In one week we got from hell to heaven", Wenger said. That kept us out of trouble.

"We scored in important moments, they missed a penalty and they had a couple of chances in the first half". In the end it was a convincing win.

"It was a bit frustrating but we have eight games and we have to make sure we win a lot of them". We had a nightmare week.

"It's like rain in England - it's easy to get", he said.

However, Arsenal was up to the challenge that they were going to face against the Watford captain, especially the aerial battle not just with him but with the entire Hornets team. "But it is a bit of understanding because of the week we have had".

Arsenal: Cech 8, Maitland-Niles 6, Holding 6, Mustafi 7, Kolasinac 6, Elneny 7, Xhaka 7, Ozil 7, Iwobi 6, Mkhitaryan 7, Aubameyang 7.
