Sunday saw Arsène Wenger's side record their first Premier League victory for more than a month courtesy of a 3-0 triumph over Watford, which followed Thursday night's 2-0 Europa League last-16 first-leg win at AC Milan.

The former Czech global saved Troy Deeney's penalty to become the first ever Premier League goalkeeper to go 200 games without conceding, after Ainsley Maitland-Niles' clumsy challenge on Roberto Pereyra inside the Arsenal box.

Petr Cech became the first goalkeeper to keep 200 Premier League clean sheets, while Mesut Ozil became the quickest to reach 50 Premier League assists and Arsenal scored their 1,000th home Premier League goal when Shkodran Mustafi opened the scoring.

Watford's Troy Deeney had a penalty saved three minutes later before Henrikh Mkhitaryan sealed the win on 77 minutes.

It was a moment of sweet vindication for the hosts after the Watford captain questioned the courage of the Gunners last October following the Hornets' win over them at Vicarage Road.

So the board can easily say, well, nobody is available so we will take the "difficult" decision to stick with failure again, when good managers will be available and are available right now. The save helped the Czech stopper achieve his 200th clean sheet in the Premier League.

Gary Neville has fired more shots at Arsenal's attendance, or lack of, after a seemingly half-empty Emirates Stadium watched on as the Gunners claimed a 3-0 win over Watford on Sunday afternoon.

"I can't play every three days", Aubameyang said.

And the striker, a £56million signing for Borussia Dortmund in January, said he was delighted to repay Wenger's faith in him so quickly. It shows a huge level of motivation and intelligence, and he shows plenty of that.

The Gabon worldwide was cup-tied for the Europa League victory over AC Milan on Thursday, but returns to the fold against the Hornets, with the Gunners aiming to halt a run of three straight Premier League defeats.

8' GOAL! Ozil delivers the ball over the wall from a free-kick and it's in the net courtesy of Mustafi. That kept us out of trouble.

"I think the team did very well and we are all happy, we are feeling better of course".
