Arsenal beat Watford at Emirates

Arsenal FC players celebrate a goal during a match against Watford FC on 11 March 2018

Speaking to Sky Sports' Alex Scott, Smith said after the game: "It's the situation at the club - there's a lot of unhappiness, a lot of lethargy, I'd say".

"He (Deeney) scored a penalty when we played the first game over there and he kind of surprised me that he shot the other side", said Cech, who had 10 seasons and 162 clean sheets with Chelsea.

Karnezis could do nothing, however, to prevent Shkodran Mustafi's eighth-minute header, steered into the left of goal from Ozil's left-hand-side free kick.

The keeper, who also recorded his 200th league clean sheet, looked as surprised as the home fans on a day when thousands stayed at home.

Watford pressed Arsenal back into their own area as the first half came to a close, but they were unable to equalise.

Shkodran Mustafi's early opener and a cool finish from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang put them in control.

The Gunners remain sixth on the table, 12 points behind fourth-placed Liverpool, who were displaced from third by Tottenham following their 4-1 victory over Bournemouth on Sunday, in a game that saw Harry Kane pick up an ankle injury.

With Arsenal holding a 2-0 lead against AC Milan and playing the second leg of their last- 16 leg tie at home on Thursday, Wenger took a risk by making six changes.

However, a penalty was conceded just after the goal when Roberto Pereyra was brought down. "It gets us out of that negative spiral that we were in", Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger told reporters.

"We have had a disappointing period and our supporters suffered like we suffered", said Wenger. "We need his goals so hopefully he will come back and help us win our next games". "We took only 18 games to get nine clean sheets at the start of the season to reach the 199 and we had to wait 11 games [to get to 200], which is sometimes frustrating".

'It was a bit hard at the beginning but I am feeling better. We had a nightmare week.

Despite the overwhelming sense his position at the club is in danger, Wenger added: "There is a lot of negativity". "I focus on my job and I think I've shown in 22 years that I can do that, that I respect everybody's opinion and do my job with total commitment".
