Arsene Wenger anxious by Arsenal's stay-away fans; says frustration 'understandable'

Posted March 13, 2018

Despite the win over Watford, Arsenal are 12 points off the top four with Arsene Wenger's men again battling to get into the Champions League next season.

He has been prevented from competing in the Europa League after seeing his former employers at Dortmund slip into the competition.

"The spirit kept us out of trouble. You have to give credit to the players, they stuck together", he said. But I wanted absolutely to win this game and it was hard, but overall, it gets us a little bit out of that negative spiral that we were in.

And after the Brummie's second half penalty was saved, Bellerin could not resist a dig back on social media. "I think the penalty is a key point in the game because if Troy scores we come back to 2-1 and the game changes completely but he missed it and we are very disappointed". We have to get the fans on our side, and do absolutely everything to achieve it.

Ahead of the conference, he tweeted, "We have not come from all the continents to deliver speeches that will soon be forgotten". The joint goal is to have 1 TW of solar energy by 2020 for which "we need United States dollars 1,000 billion", he said.

The stop also helped Cech finally reach 200 clean sheets, having conceded at least one goal in each of his last 11 matches, becoming the first Premier League goalkeeper to reach the marker.

Cech had been stuck on 199 clean sheets - already a record - since Arsenal's 1-0 win over Newcastle on December 16, a run of 11 games. "Fantastic motivation, fantastic desire and remarkable intelligence", he said.

Many supporters will likely require some more convincing before they return to the Emirates, while an apparent lack of faith in Wenger may have severed the connection more permanently for other absent fans.

Aubameyang made it 2-0 for Arsenal 14 minutes into the second half with a left-footed shot.

Fuelled by that jibe, Arsenal took the lead in the eighth minute.

Watford weren't fazed and Abdoulaye Doucoure's low strike deflected off Mustafi to force a good save from Cech.

Watford took off Femenia and replaced him with Will Hughes, and moments later Arsenal could have had a penalty when Adrian Mariappa clattered Mkhitaryan as he crossed but the referee waved play on as the ball just eluded Aubameyang in the middle.

With the momentum back in their favour, Aubameyang doubled Arsenal's lead in the 59th minute.
