Arsene Wenger hails Petr Cech after recording 200th Premier League clean sheet

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger paid tribute to Petr Cech after he produced a 200th clean sheet for victory over Watford.

Arsenal must win the Europa League to claim a spot in the Champions League, with the Londoners now languishing sixth in the Premier League table and 11 points off fourth place.

I don't know how bad we have to check tomorrow'.

"We want first of all to be strong at home and win our home games and, after Thursday, we want to win again".

Heading into this match, Arsene Wenger said that he would answer Troy Deeney's comments on the pitch.

It didn't take long for the Gunners to score in the second half as Pierre Emerick Aubameyang went around the keeper to double the lead from a Henrikh Mkhitaryan assist.

The sparse crowd at the Emirates was not so good, however, as Arsenal fans voted with their feet.

A 2-0 away win at AC Milan in the Europa League has helped ease concerns after four defeats in a row for Wenger's side.

However, a penalty was conceded just after the goal when Roberto Pereyra was brought down.

It was the first time the 35-year-old Cech has kept out a spot-kick since joining Arsenal in 2015.

A good win, a slap in the face for Deeney, a penalty save from Cech, and to cap it all we scored our 1000th Premier League goal!

Aubameyang then turned assistant for Mkhitaryan in the 77th minute, passing the ball across the front of the goal for the Armenian to smash the ball home from close range.

"He had to wait a while to save a penalty and it's quite fortunate it was against Deeney".

"His situation shows what football is like".
