Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Reveals Frustration Surrounding Bizarre Europa League Rules

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Reveals Frustration Surrounding Bizarre Europa League Rules

"It gets us out of this negative spiral a little bit".

"We are in a job where we have to get the fans on our side and do absolutely everything to achieve it". Changing a winning team:The old adage is "don't change a winning team" - Arsene Wenger decided to make six changes from the 2-0 victory at the San Siro. The likes of Laurent Koscielny, Aaron Ramsey, and Jack Wilshere were all given a rest in hope to keep them fit for Thursday's clash.

Within the space of a few second half minutes Arsenal put themselves 2-0 in front and Watford missed a penalty.

Cech was called into action again via a Richarlison free-kick, but even as he proved equal to the task, Watford should have equalised on the rebound but Roberto Pereyra would send his effort high and wide to let the hosts off the hook.

Nigeria forward Alex Iwobi made his 15th English Premier League start of the season for Arsenal who avoided a fourth straight defeat by beating Watford 3-0 at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Deeney had questioned Arsenal's "cojones" following their 2-1 defeat at Vicarage Road earlier in the season, making Cech's save - his first from a spot-kick since 2011 - all the sweeter for the home side, who snapped a three-game losing streak in the top flight.

After the match, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger said: "Two-hundred clean sheets is of course remarkable".

"They all just backed off. I don't know what he is thinking about".

However, his right-footed shot from the centre of the box was saved. They face Stoke on April 1st, in their first game back after the global break.

After a hard Thursday night game, on Sunday morning we still had the spirit to stick together.

But to get to these heights, most of Cech's work was done in his years at Chelsea.

He continued and went on to praise Cech's consistency in the Premier League.

'Two hundred clean sheets is remarkable and he had to wait a while to save a penalty, ' Wenger added.

"His [Cech's] situation shows how football is, in one week he has gone from hell to heaven".

However, Ozil wouldn't be denied his 50th Premier League assist for long.

Watford have now lost all five of their away Premier League matches in the month of March.

"Thanks to the result in Milan, we are in a good position to reach the last eight of the Europa League".

"The spirit kept us out of trouble. We dealt well with set pieces which is why they could not come back".
