Shkodran Mustafi shines as Arsenal ease past Watford in Premier League

The Watford striker became the pantomime villain at Arsenal after he suggested the club had no "cojones" after their 2-1 victory over the Gunners earlier in the season.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan then sealed victory with a low strike that crept under Orestis Karnezis in the 77th minute.

The German's free-kick teed up Shkodran Mustafi to head the Gunners in front, as Arsene Wenger chased his 700th win as Arsenal boss.

Afterwards Arsène Wenger spoke to Arsenal Media about continuing the momentum from Thursday's Europa League win over Milan.

"All these things come in, for how much I don't know, but of course it plays a part".

After handing Brighton two goals last week and admitting responsibility for his gaffes publicly, Cech stepped and performed brilliantly against Watford.

Arsenal: Cech 8, Maitland-Niles 6, Holding 6, Mustafi 7, Kolasinac 6, Elneny 7, Xhaka 7, Ozil 7, Iwobi 6, Mkhitaryan 7, Aubameyang 7.

Six Nations: Ireland v Scotland: Best hopes Ireland will learn from mistakes
Ireland will complete the third Grand Slam in their history if they beat England at Twickenham next Saturday. Scotland had its chances but wasn't as accurate, and butchered two tries, probably three.

The result leaves the Gunners sixth, 10 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham in the final Champions League spot.

A good win, a slap in the face for Deeney, a penalty save from Cech, and to cap it all we scored our 1000th Premier League goal!

Aaron Ramsey and Laurent Koscielny were rested, with Jack Wilshere only on the bench, but the gamble paid off for Arsenal.

"We want first of all to be strong at home and win our home games and, after Thursday, we want to win again". After a hard Thursday night game, on Sunday morning we still had the spirit to stick together.

The 35-year-old now has 38 clean sheets for Arsenal and 162 for Chelsea in 431 games.

"I wanted to absolutely win this game, it was hard, but it gets us out of that negative spirit that we were in".

"It was a bit frustrating but we have eight games and we have to make sure we win majority".
