Poor attendances at Arsenal home games a worry for Wenger


Holding says the manner of the win provided evidence Deeney's assertion was wide of the mark and says Arsenals players set out to show the Watford number nine what they are made of.

Aubameyang scored the Gunners' second and laid on the third for Henrikh Mkhitryan, all after Shkodran Mustafi's header had put Arsenal ahead in the first half.

Now on a more serious note, it was nice to see Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan link up today as it was so reminiscent of Dortmund, but the best thing that happened was Deeney missing a penalty which Cech actually saved!

That was a sweet moment for the home fans, as Deeney had questioned Arsenal's heart when the Hornets won the corresponding fixture in October.

"We have had a disappointing period and our supporters suffered like we suffered". We are in a job where we have to get the fans on our side and do absolutely everything to do it, to achieve it.

The game also saw Petr Cech keep his 200th English Premier League clean sheet.

The win came after one of the most hard spells of Wenger's time at Arsenal following three successive defeats - the 3-0 losses to Manchester City in the League and Carabao Cup final and a 2-1 reverse at Brighton.

Though he holds legendary status, he is also held in high regard as a coach, with Premier League stars Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku and Kevin De Bruyne all said to be impressed with his abilities.

"We took 18 games [of this season] to get to nine clean sheets, I got to 199 and then had to wait 11 games to get another clean sheet", said Cech.

"I always believe in the work that I'm doing every, and that one day it was going to turn".

The Gunners were reminded of his comments before the game and Wenger says they were a factor. "We feel the confidence is back", Aubameyang said.

"The spirit kept us out of trouble".

The Gunners started the match with their usual 4-2-3-1 with Mohamed Elneny playing as part of a two-man pivot in midfield alongside Granit Xhaka.

For now, all Wenger can do is focus on leading Arsenal on a long winning run, starting with protecting a 2-0 lead when AC Milan visit the Emirates in the Europa League last 16, second leg on Thursday.

"When he gets on it and you give him a little bit of time to play, he can manoeuvre the ball so well".
