Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech "delighted with unbelievable" milestone of 200 clean sheets

Richarlison shot wide, headed wide and also saw a free-kick pushed away by Cech, with Roberto Pereyra wasting the rebound by shooting over when unmarked six yards out. The scoreline was flattering for the home side but Watford only had itself to blame after spurning multiple chances, most notably a penalty miss by captain Troy Deeney.

Deeney had infuriated Arsenal by accusing them of a lack of "cojones" after Watford beat Wenger's men in October.

"I'll have to watch what I say".

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

"They all just backed off".

Deeney's words evidently hit a nerve with Arsenal as, five months later, Bellerin got his revenge on the 29-year-old after the Gunners earned a 3-0 victory at Emirates Stadium.

"It's been a while and I have to say it's never happened that I've had to wait 11 games for a clean sheet", Cech told the club's website.

"We knew before the game that physically it might be a bit hard but we had a good spirit".

"I'm buzzing for Petr to get over that milestone".

Cech kept 162 of his clean sheets for Chelsea, while 38 have come since his move to Arsenal, and manager Arsene Wenger hailed his goalkeeper's achievement. It is quite fortunate that it was against Deeney. But I like both situations, because in the first he showed a lot of humility and responsibility, and a record like that witnesses a lot of motivation and a huge degree of intelligence. Ozil became the fastest player to reach 50 assists in the premier league. Over his years of service for the Blues, Cech collected several records in quick fashion before passing the torch to young keeper Thibaut Courtois in his last season at Stamford Bridge, leaving SW6 as a Premier League and League Cup victor to then join Arsenal in the summer of 2015.

When Ozil swung a deep free kick towards the far post, Mustafi punished slack marking by Jose Holebas and Adrian Mariappa as the German defender powered a close-range header past Karnezis. Manchester United are the only other team to pass this mark.

You don't last so long in the game if you're not intelligent.
But overall the spirit and desire was good. Watford came back strongly in the second half but we did well with set-pieces and got the second goal after Petr Cech made a great save on the penalty.

The Gunners started the match with their usual 4-2-3-1 with Mohamed Elneny playing as part of a two-man pivot in midfield alongside Granit Xhaka.
