English Premier League Report: Arsenal v Watford 11 March 2018

Arsene Wenger received a welcome boost as Arsenal eased a little of the pressure on their beleaguered boss with a 3-0 win over Watford on Sunday.

The under-fire manager's first victory came against Blackburn Rovers way back in 1996, when Ian Wright scored twice in a 2-0 win at Ewood Park.

It was the first time in 16 attempts that Cech saved a penalty since moving to Arsenal from Chelsea and brought a wild roar of approval from the Emirates crowd, which had booed Deeney loudly following his comments in October that the Gunners lacked "cojones".

The victory was finally sealed 13 minutes from the end, when Aubameyang set up Mkhitaryan for his first Premier League goal in an Arsenal shirt.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles conceded a penalty with a foul on Pereyra, but when Deeney stepped up to take the spot-kick, Cech made a fine save that preserved his 200th clean sheet in the Premier League.

Watford controlled the game either side of halftime, but was punished for failing to make its dominance pay when Aubameyang doubled the lead in the 59th as he rounded Karnezis after latching onto Mkhitaryan's through ball.

Trade war with US will only bring disaster to global economy: China
China has repeatedly vowed to defend its "legitimate rights and interests" if targeted by U.S. trade actions. Calling steelworkers the "backbone of America", Trump called steel vital to United States national security.

Aubameyang was one of six players recalled as Arsene Wenger rotated ahead of next week's return leg with the Italians, and had a golden opportunity to score inside three minutes.

The game was all sewn up when Mkhitaryan made it three on 77 minutes, when ex-Dortmund team-mate Aubameyang laid him off for an easy finish.

- Mesut Ozil became the fastest player to reach 50 Premier League assists, doing so in just 141 games and breaking the record held by Eric Cantona (143 games).

And the Germany international's effort saw Arsenal join Manchester United (1066) in surpassing the 1000-goal milestone.

Petr Cech is likely to replace Ospina in goal despite the Colombian having a great night at the San Siro as he kept a clean sheet.

- Four of Mustafi's five Premier League goals have been assisted by Ozil (two from corners, two from free-kicks) - all four of the Ozil assisted goals have been at the Emirates.
