Wenger praises Arsenal for getting out of 'negative spiral' after Watford scalp

Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Mesut Ozil have silenced critics, insists Arsene Wenger

I don't know how much negativity is out there, I focus on my job.

The former Chelsea 'keeper became the first player to reach the 200 mark in the Premier League era, and Cech, who joined the Gunners in 2015, is way ahead of his nearest rivals.

Petr Cech finally earned his 200th career clean sheet in the 3-0 victory on Sunday.

Maintaining the momentum from that last-16 victory in the San Siro, Wenger's side ended a run of three successive Premier League defeats with a solid display at the Emirates Stadium.Shkodran Mustafi's early opener and a cool finish from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang put them in control. It is quite fortunate that it was against Deeney. 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.

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

"We got the win today and overall it was important to show consistency", the Frenchman told Sky Sports.

"His situation shows what football is like".

The Hornets' best chance of the game fell to captain Deeney after Pereyra had been fouled in the penalty area by a combination of Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Alex Iwobi.

Arsenal are also vying for a spot in next season's Champions League through the Europa League.

Boss Wenger has used some rather unusual metaphors to describe Arsenal's stuttering form in recent weeks.

"At 2-0 they had a penalty and if they had come back to 2-1 it is a fact that we have a bit of fatigue and we could have been in trouble but we took advantage of that miss".

Watford boss Javi Gracia refused to blame the defeat on Deeney's jibes, which came before he was in charge.

"Troy before the match was concentrating on playing well, to help the team", Gracia said.

"He had a chance to score the penalty but he didn't do it". Whenever I play against Arsenal, I'll go up and think "let me whack the first one and see who wants it".
