Arsenal 3-0 Watford: Gunners player ratings as they cruise to victory

Arsenal 3-0 Watford: Gunners player ratings as they cruise to victory

Prior to their midweek 2-0 away win over AC Milan in the Europa League, the Gunners had lost four games in a row in all competitions, including back-to-back 3-0 drubbings by runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City.

"A record like that witnesses a lot of motivation and a huge level of intelligence, as you don't last for such a long time in the game if you're not intelligent".

The Gunners have endured a hard 2017-18 campaign under Arsene Wenger to heap further pressure on the French head coach following a hard decade.

Arsenal got revenge on Troy Deeney after beating Watford 3-0 at the Emirates. and Hector Bellerin wanted to rub his nose in it.

The game also saw Petr Cech keep his 200th English Premier League clean sheet.

Arsenal should have been ahead inside three minutes as Mohamed Elneny and Mesut Ozil combined to set Aubameyang in behind.

Wenger declared that victory showed Arsenal were close to turning a corner, adding: "It was hard but overall it gets us out a little bit of that negative spiral we were in".

"Wenger is one of the best managers in the world". 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!

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang fluffed two good chances in the first half and "playmaker" Henrik Mkhitaryan once again looked clumsy. I know what I'm talking about because the same clubs contacted me and told me, when I met them, that their first objective was to have Arsene come.

In a triple boost, Wenger also eased fears over Ozil's fitness by saying the German playmaker is "alright" after he appeared to be limping midway through the second half after being kicked on the ankle.

It was everything Arsenal fans wanted as well. "You have to give credit to the players, they stuck together", he said.

"I believe in two weeks, his situation shows how football is".

"In the second half we created more chances, but after their second goal it was very hard for us".
