Arsenal finally show some 'cojones' during emphatic win against Watford

Noted British journalist Piers Morgan had requested the fans to boycott the matches to show their disappointment to the higher authorities. We have to get the fans on our side, and do absolutely everything to achieve it.

With Arsene Wenger's hopes of finishing in the top four all but ended as they sit 12 points behind fourth-placed Liverpool, winning the Europa League will be his side's only realistic chance of qualifying for the Champions League next season.

Mkhitaryan collected Aubameyang's pass inside the penalty area and smashed the ball into Orestis Karnezis net.

He has made 25 appearances in all competitions so far this season, including nine in the Premier League.

Watford should have been level as Cech pushed Richarlison's free-kick straight back into play only for Roberto Pereyra to blaze wildly over.

Cech was at fault for both goals as Arsenal lost 2-1 at the Amex Stadium in their last top-flight outing, responding on social media after the game by taking full responsibility for the defeat.

The Watford captain had mocked the Gunners after their defeat at Vicarage Road in October - but Arsenal had the last laugh today. "You have to give credit to the players, they stuck together", he said. "It's (having) a bit of cojones, a bit of nuts".

I told you that the confidence comes back slowly, but it comes back with spirit.

Cech saved Troy Deeney's penalty to preserve his clean sheet and earn the win.

Arsenal centre-back Rob Holding says the Gunners were determined to prove Troy Deeney wrong in their 3-0 win over Watford, and that the striker's disparaging comments were "definitely in the back of our minds".

"But the most important thing is when the team wins".

The Czech Republic and former Chelsea 'keeper also saved a penalty on his way to bringing up a 200th EPL clean sheet over the last 14 years. He had to wait a while for that, and it was quite fortunate it came against Deeney.

"I believe his situation shows how football is".

Arsenal has now managed to win two games in a row, but will now have a tough task at hand as they gear up to face Milan in their second leg match at home.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan's strike wrapped up the points, but there was concern for Wenger as Mustafi limped off in the closing stages.
