  • The Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger

The under-fire manager's first victory came against Blackburn Rovers way back in 1996, when Ian Wright scored twice in a 2-0 win at Ewood Park.

Speaking after Arsenal's 3-0 win, which was secured thanks to goals from Shkodran Mustafi, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Wenger said it was "fortunate" that Deeney missed the penalty.

"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.

The Gunners remain sixth on the table, 12 points behind fourth-placed Liverpool, who were displaced from third by Tottenham following their 4-1 victory over Bournemouth on Sunday, in a game that saw Harry Kane pick up an ankle injury.

The Gabon global 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.

"We dealt well with the set pieces and our spirit took advantage of them".

For the experienced Cech, it was his first penalty save since 2011 when playing for Chelsea against Fulham.

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

"Overall it's a convincing win and an important one".

"He's gone from hell to heaven in the past week".

Five months later in the reverse fixture, Watford were awarded a penalty when 2-0 down at the Emirates after Ainsley Maitland-Niles brought down Roberto Pereyra inside the box.

"In the first half unfortunately we couldn't take our chances and then we were under threat". Wilshere had given a lot on Thursday night, we had a very physical game on Thursday night. "I think a coin did hit David Sullivan, his glasses", he told BBC 5 Live.

Arsenal move to within 10 points of the top four, although the Europa League now appears their most likely route to next season's UEFA Champions League.
