The victory moves Arsenal to sixth position on 48 points in the EPL table.

Four of Mustafi's five Premier League goals have been assisted by Mesut Özil (two from corners, two from free kicks) - all four of the Özil assisted goals have been at the Emirates.

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.

Arsenal returned to winning ways in the Premier League with a 3-0 victory over Watford at the Emirates Stadium.

However, Arsenal could still qualify for next season's Champions League if they win the Europa League, and that competition affected Arsene Wenger's team selection on Sunday.

The victory followed the 2-0 Europa League win at AC Milan on Thursday, which came after one of the most hard spells of Wenger's tenure as a Carabao Cup final defeat to Manchester City was followed by league losses to both City and Brighton.

A minute later Watford won a penalty when Ainsley Maitland-Niles was deemed to have brought down Roberto Pereyra in the area.

"I'm disappointed because I can't believe today we don't score a goal".

The visitors had the better of the early exchanges of the second-half, only to fall further behind as Mkhitaryan slid in Aubameyang, who rounded Karnezis to slot home.

The third goal arrived in the 77th minute as Aubameyang turned provider to tee up Mkhitaryan, who slotted past Karnezis from just inside the box.

Arsenal took a two-goal lead through Shkodran Mustafi and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang before the Hornets were awarded a penalty just after the hour mark.

From then, Petr Cech managed to make his maiden penalty save for Arsenal to deny Troy Deeney from 12 yards, and thereafter, there was a role reversal with Aubameyang assisting Mkhitaryan's goal, 13 minutes from time.
