Cech finally reaches 200 Premier League clean sheets

Petr Cech made a number of crucial saves on the way to his 200th Premier League clean sheet - none more crucial than the second-half penalty that would have reduced their lead to 2-1 and given Watford a foothold in the game.

Losses against Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City and Brighton & Hove Albion had formed part of a run of five defeats in six matches in all competitions, before a 2-0 UEFA Europa League win at AC Milan lifted spirits.

Shkodran Mustafi opened the scoring with a brilliant header off a Mesut Ozil in the 8th minute, and the Gunners should have extended the lead further with clear-cut chances for both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Ozil.

Watford pressed Arsenal back into their own area as the first half came to a close, but they were unable to equalise.

"We took 18 games to get to nine clean sheets, I got to 199 and then had to wait 11 games to get another clean sheet", said the Czech.

"It is an important win today against a big team like Watfod as it comes after a series of league losses", the Egyptian global, who played the full 90 minutes and produced a fine display in the heart of midfield, told beIN Sports channel after the match.
