Arsenal's Win Over Watford Is Important, Says Arsene Wenger

Arsene Wenger saluted Petr Cech's reaction to his poor display against Brighton and Hove Albion as the goalkeeper went from "hell to heaven" in a week by playing a vital role and reaching 200 Premier League clean sheets in Sunday's win over Watford.

From then, Petr Cech managed to make his maiden penalty save for Arsenal to deny Troy Deeney from 12 yards, and thereafter, there was a role reversal with Aubameyang assisting Mkhitaryan's goal, 13 minutes from time.

"The record is absolutely remarkable", said the Frenchman, who reached 700 wins as Arsenal boss.

Arsenal, which had lost eight of its previous 14 matches in all competitions, remains in sixth place and trails fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur by 10 points ahead of its rival's trip to Bournemouth later yesterday.

Cech's penalty save was his first since joining Arsenal in 2015 and it helped him secure a landmark 200th Premier League clean sheet.

African footballer of the year nominee and Gabonese striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang doubled their lead when he collected Henrikh Mkhitaryan's pass on the hour mark.

They hold a 2-0 lead against Milan and will host the Serie A giants in the second leg on Thursday. "We dealt well with set pieces which is why they could not come back".

"It is an important win today against a big team like Watfod as it comes after a series of league losses", the Egyptian global, who played the full 90 minutes and produced a fine display in the heart of midfield, told beIN Sports channel after the match.

"It is an unbelievable personal milestone, but the most important thing is to win and so it was defeats that were more frustrating", said Cech.

'We had a nightmare week so we have some work to do but overall we are in a good way.

While Arsenal looked strong going forward, their six changes gave the defence a makeshift feel, although Richarlison could not capitalise as he fired wide after breaking in behind.

"Did we move the ball more quickly?"

The veteran keeper also saved his first penalty for the Gunners, blocking Troy Deeney's second-half spot kick.
