Arsene Wenger was handed another bit of respite on Sunday afternoon as Arsenal recorded back-to-back victories for the first time since January, beating Watford 3-0 at the Emirates.

It was an entertaining, open game, with the Hornets certainly playing their part, with Richarlison in particular looking dangerous.

However, Arsenal's quality shone through, with Shkodran Mustafi, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan getting the goals.

The latter has now scored in two consecutive games and provided a brilliant assist for Aubameyang's goal as the two former Borussia Dortmund men showed another glimpse of their chemistry.

It hasn't been easy for Mkhitaryan since his move from Manchester United to replace Alexis Sanchez, but he does appear to be finding his feet.

And after the game, the Armenian forward gave a very honest interview to beIN Sport, one which has really impressed Arsenal fans.

You can watch the footage below.


Towards the end of the video, Mkhitaryan says to the fans: "You know we are always playing for the fans and it doesn't matter if they could have come today or not.

"We're always playing for those who come and support us, who are really supporting us, they are real fans who are not just coming to the stadium when we are winning, we have nothing to say.

"Just thanks to the fans who were supporting today."


Fair play.

One trusted Arsenal Twitter account posted about the interview, hinting that Mkhitaryan's words may be viewed as controversial.

However, Arsenal fans were all very happy with what he said.


One of the big talking points from the game was Troy Deeney's missed penalty, which also helped hand Petr Cech his 200th clean sheet in Premier League action.

The Watford striker became the pantomime villain at Arsenal after he suggested the club had no 'cojones' after their 2-1 victory over the Gunners earlier in the season.

Think the word 'karma' is pretty appropriate here.
