  • Sports Burst – Arsenal Seek San Siro Low Point

The Gunners suffered another 3-0 defeat at the hands of the Premier League leaders in the English top flight at The Emirates before a 2-1 loss at relegation candidates Brighton and Hove Albion last weekend.

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.

But goals from Shkodran Mustafi, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan were enough to secure a fairly comfortable 3-0 win over Watford, who had a second-half Troy Deeney penalty saved by Petr Cech.

The match saw Mesut Ozil reach 50 Premier League assists in his 141st game, surpassing Eric Cantona as the quickest to reach that landmark, with the former Leeds United and Manchester United star doing it in 143 appearances.

Petr Cech (Arsenal): It's been a tough time for the keeper, who was forced to accept some responsibility after a bad result last weekend against Brighton.

Wenger said: "Cech had to wait a while to save a penalty". It also shows remarkable intelligence because without remarkable intelligence you don't last in the game, because you have to deal with so many different problems.

"The highlights were Petr Cech saving the penalty", before he added: "You can not be a sportsman without pride".

We knew we're on a hard run at the moment, we had to look at ourselves and we had a big result in midweek in Milan and I felt we carried the determination into today. "I thought we had a very good first half".

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

Wenger added: "There is a lot of negativity".

"Yes of course I worry because I want our fans to be behind the team and to be happy", Wenger said. I wanted to preserve some players, like Koscielny, who has a little calf problem.

But the Armenia global, who opened his Arsenal account in Milan, added the third courtesy of Aubameyang's pass with substitute Danny Welbeck coming close to grabbing a fourth late on.

I told you that the confidence comes back slowly, but it comes back with spirit.
