Mesut Ozil breaks Eric Cantona's Premier League assists record

12 March 2018

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admitted concern over the number of empty seats at Emirates Stadium as his side continued their mini-revival with a Premier League victory over Watford.

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.

Deeney had plenty to say after scoring a penalty in Watford's 2-1 win over Arsenal in October but he suffered on Sunday as his second half spot kick was saved by Petr Cech.

The former Chelsea goalkeeper had to wait nearly three months between his 199th clean sheet in the Premier League and his landmark 200th but he achieved it yesterday in some style, needing to save a penalty - his first for the club - and his manager hailed his goalkeeper's intense level of intelligence. He had to wait a while for that, and it was quite fortunate it came against Deeney. But I like both situations, because in the first he showed a lot of humility and responsibility, and a record like that witnesses a lot of motivation and a huge degree of intelligence.

"I am happy with him when he scores and when he doesn't score".

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang fluffed two good chances in the first half and "playmaker" Henrik Mkhitaryan once again looked clumsy.

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

However, Ozil wouldn't be denied his 50th Premier League assist for long.

Arsenal controlled possession until the end of the game to secure a 3-0 win that leaves them sixth, 12 points behind fourth-placed Liverpool.

"Maybe the world has changed as well", Wenger added.

Short-handed Warriors visit struggling Timberwolves
The Golden State Warriors - playing short-handed - lost their first game since the All-Star break on Friday at Portland. Bell could be back as soon as Wednesday, and McCaw is set to get his left wrist re-evaluated by team doctors Wednesday.

"We knew before the game that physically it might be a bit hard but we had a good spirit".

Before Sunday the Gunners had lost their last three league games on the bounce.

Despite Wenger's defiance, he admitted the no-show by fans is concerning.

"We need more games, we had a nightmare week, overall there is some work still to do. I focus on my job, and I think I've shown in 22 years that I can do that".

ARSENAL: Cech, Holding, Mustafi (Chambers, 73), Kosalinac, Maitland-Niles, Xhaka, Elneny, Mkhitaryan (Wilshere, 78), Iwobi (Welbeck, 65), Ozil, Aubameyang.
