A first-half header from Shkodran Mustafi and second-half strikes from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan sealed the win for the Gunners.

Wenger is fighting to save his job and 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.

This had all the feeling of a last game of the season with nothing at stake.

"Of course it plays a part", Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said.

Watford beat Arsenal 2-1 at Vicarage Road in October which included a Deeney penalty.

MESUT Ozil became the fastest player in Premier League history to reach 50 assists during Arsenal's 3-0 win over Watford on Super Sunday, bringing up the milestone on his 141st appearance for the Gunners.

Watford had a chance to pull one back but Troy Deeney's penalty was saved by Petr Cech, who secured the 200th Premier League clean sheet of his career.

Arsenal are sixth in the table with 48 points, 12 behind the last Champions League qualifying spot.

Missouri's Michael Porter Jr. will play Thursday in SEC tourney opener
Thursday or Friday might finally put an end to the will-he-won't-he-play game that fans and media have been playing for months. He has not played since Missouri's November 10 season-opener against Iowa State , a game in which he played just two minutes.

2011 - Petr Cech has saved a penalty in the @premierleague for the first time since February 2011, whilst playing for Chelsea against Fulham.

And Wenger suggests players have to be stronger mentally than in previous eras, given the amount of criticism Ozil often receives from Arsenal fans.

"I'm disappointed because I can't believe today we don't score a goal". 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!

The visitors had the better of the early exchanges of the second-half, only to fall further behind as Mkhitaryan slid in Aubameyang, who rounded Karnezis to slot home.

"I leave that judgement to you, I think yes", he said.

"I remember very well every time he refused the biggest clubs to stay at Arsenal".

"It's the situation we find ourselves in - even when Mustafi's goal went in there wasn't much of a roar".
