Mkhitaryan, Aubameyang have a telepathic link-up: Martin Keown

That proved to the final bit of goal-mouth action as the Gunners end their three-game losing run in the league.

Petr Cech saved a penalty for the first time since 2011 on his way to reaching 200 Premier League clean sheets in Arsenal's 3-0 win against Watford on Sunday.

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.

But the win did little to improve Arsenal's prospects of a top-four finish - which brings qualification for the Uefa Champions League - and will not carry much weight with supporters who feel ending Wenger's 22-year reign is the only way to get their club back on track.

Watford's chance to reduce the deficit from the spot came two minutes later, when Ainsley Maitland-Niles clumsily left his body in the path of Pereyra to go tumbling over.

Petr Cech (Arsenal): It's been a tough time for the keeper, who was forced to accept some responsibility after a awful result last weekend against Brighton. "Fantastic motivation, fantastic desire and remarkable intelligence".

"It's been a while and I have to say that it's never happened that I've had to wait for 11 games for a clean sheet".

The bill slashed taxes for 90 percent of working Americans and reduced the tax burden for businesses across the board. An economics professor interviewed by ABC News provided a picture of what might be expected from the tariffs.

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

Vieira, who played for Arsenal between 1996 and 2005, has prior coaching experience with Major League Soccer side New York City but didn't want to discuss replacing Wenger.

"Overall it gets us out of that negative spirit that we were in", he said.

"At 2-0 they had a penalty and if they had come back to 2-1 it is a fact that we have a bit of fatigue and we could have been in trouble but we took advantage of that miss".

Besides, Arsene's good relationship makes it all the more hard to get rid of him, which remains the best thing for this football club at the end of the season regardless if we win the Europa or not.

The Gunners have improved on their recent torrid run of form, which started with the 2-0 win over Milan at the San Siro in their last-16 tie's first leg. Arsenal then followed that up with a convincing 3-0 win over Watford.

The Europa League absences along with the Bundesliga's winter break meant that Aubameyang only played once in January, but regular Premier League appearances have made life easier.
