Aubameyang says 'confidence is back' after Watford win

The result served as redemption for Watford's 2-1 win over the Gunners back in October, when a last-gasp Tom Cleverley strike secured three points for the Hornets at Vicarage Road.

But victories in the Europa League over AC Milan and in the Premier League against Watford have helped them build some momentum.

Given that the north London club are a massive 12 points behind fourth-placed Liverpool, winning the European competition looks like being their only route back to Champions League football.

Aubameyang has, however, responded with two efforts in as many Premier League outings of late and is pleased to be playing his part in relieving some of the pressure on Arsene Wenger's shoulders.

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.

"I am really happy for the boss because I am here because of him. I think I've shown in 22 years that I can do that, that I'll respect everyone's opinion and focus on my job with total commitment", Wenger said.

But Deeney, who had scored three times in his past four appearances, had a day to forget on Sunday as his penalty was too close to Cech in the middle of the goal, and the Czech saved it.

Auba added: "I am really frustrated because the rules are a bit..."

"He had to wait a while to save a penalty, and it's quite fortunate that it's against Deeney", Wenger smiled.

"You need to work a lot to try and beat this kind of team", the midfielder told Watford's official website.

It ended a run of three successive Premier League losses for Arsenal.

"I selected my team to have the chance to win the game and also rest some players I did not want to get injured".
