EPL Table: 2018 Week 30 Standings After Sunday's Premier League Scores

EPL Table: 2018 Week 30 Standings After Sunday's Premier League Scores

Wenger has come under increasing pressure over recent weeks following a run of four consecutive defeats in all competitions, although a 2-0 Europa League win over AC Milan on Thursday offered the French coach something of a reprieve.

The 22-year-old Bellerin, who sports a ponytail, obviously hadn't forgotten Deeney's dig and when Petr Cech saved the Watford skipper's spot-kick on Sunday, he got one over the English striker with his sly tweet.

Deeney infamously accused Arsenal's players of lacking "cajones" after they squandered a lead to be beaten 2-1 by Watford in October.

The Gunners remain sixth on the table, 12 points behind fourth-placed Liverpool, who were displaced from third by Tottenham following their 4-1 victory over Bournemouth on Sunday, in a game that saw Harry Kane pick up an ankle injury.

Goals from Shkodran Mustafi, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan secured the win for Arsene Wenger's men.

And so ahead of the return game against Milan on Thursday night, Arsenal have a chance to restore a certain sanity going into the worldwide break, perhaps even salvage something from their season.

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers turns the screw on rivals Rangers
Few of the 50,000 Rangers fans who witnessed their side claim a 3-2 win over Celtic in March 2012 would have imagined that six years later they'd still be waiting to celebrate another Old Firm victory in the Scottish Premiership .

With the second leg against Milan looming on Thursday, Wenger rested Aaron Ramsey and Laurent Koscielny and left Jack Wilshere on the bench, and his gamble paid off.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang fluffed two good chances in the first half and "playmaker" Henrik Mkhitaryan once again looked clumsy. "We dealt well with set pieces which is why they could not come back". "We had a nightmare week, and so overall we still have some work to do, but we are in a good way".

However, Cech saved the penalty, raising a pair of strong forearms as he dived away to his right to provoke the biggest cheer of the afternoon.

Arsenal then slowed down the game's tempo by keeping possession in their own half.

Watford controlled the game either side of halftime, but was punished for failing to make its dominance pay when Aubameyang doubled the lead in the 59th as he rounded Karnezis after latching onto Mkhitaryan's through ball.
