Shut Out: The 11 Goalkeepers With the Most Premier League Clean Sheets

Arsenal may have emerged victorious in a three nil victory in a home match against Watford on Super Sunday yesterday (March 11), but that was not the only winning that the Gunners bagged.

Those are some interesting if slightly unsurprising quotes from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Arsenal won 2-0 in Italy last week and will be confident of securing their place in the Europa League quarter-finals later this week.

"The spirit kept us out of trouble".

"You can not be a football player without pride, or any sportsman without pride", he said.

"I think it is going to be very tough for him to win the Europa League", Parlour told Sky Sports. I regret that we couldn't take our chances and after that, in the second half, we suffered a bit because Watford put us under pressure.

"But our job is to perform and to stick together in hard moments, and to get the fans back on our side again".

The game also saw Petr Cech keep his 200th English Premier League clean sheet. "Fantastic motivation, fantastic desire and remarkable intelligence".

But Arsene Wenger's side, who have fallen well off the pace in the top-four battle, remain in the spotlight and while the official attendance was clocked at 59,131, patches of empty red seats were again evident.

Aubameyang scored Arsenal's second and spoke about the 3-0 victory after the match.

Watford had come from behind to beat Arsenal 2-1 in the reverse fixture at Vicarage Road in October, after which Deeney suggested the Gunners lacked "cojones", something which Wenger revealed had provided additional motivation.

The Germany global defender headed the home side into the lead in the eighth minute and took Arsenal into a half-time lead.

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

Watford should have been level shortly before the half-hour when Cech pushed away a Richarlison free kick and Roberto Pereyra, following up, thrashed an effort wildly over when he had time to take a touch and then shoot.

There was more cause for Wenger to wear a rare smile a few minutes later.
