"But the most important thing is when the team wins".

He said: "You can not be a football player or any sportsman without pride, so these things come into it". "I believe that I like him as a player and when you get negative statements you have to deal with it". Wilshere had given a lot on Thursday night, we had a very physical game on Thursday night.

"We are taking the situation more seriously now and we managed to beat Milan away in the Europa league before beating Watford".

The sparse crowd at the Emirates was not so good, however, as Arsenal fans voted with their feet.

"Of course I worry because I want our fans to be behind our team and be happy", Wenger told the London Evening Standard.

After a wretched run left Wenger fighting to save his job, a 2-0 win at AC Milan in the Europa League on Thursday offered the Frenchman temporary respite from the torrent of abuse he has endured this season.

"He's gone from hell to heaven in the past week".

Goals from Shkodran Mustafi, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan ensured the Gunners stopped a three-game losing streak in the league in a 3-0 victory and also made Deeney eat his words. Watford pressed Arsenal back into their own area as the first half came to a close, but they were unable to equalise.

Arsenal picked up the pace again and returning Mkhitaryan's earlier assist, Aubameyang supplied the cross to give the Armenia worldwide his first league goal for Arsenal.

Five months later in the reverse fixture, Watford were awarded a penalty when 2-0 down at the Emirates after Ainsley Maitland-Niles brought down Roberto Pereyra inside the box. Aubameyang netted his third goal in an Arsenal shirt, after converting Mkhitaryan through ball into the back of the net on the hour mark.

Cech was still needed to make four stops, including his first penalty save in 16 faced for the club.

"He had to wait a while to save a penalty, and it's quite fortunate that it's against Deeney", added Wenger. It shows a huge level of motivation and intelligence, and he shows plenty of that.
